    I did Williams Sonoma and Macys. only cuz a) macy’;s is really easy for everyone to get to from wherever they are and b) i heart super fancy kitchen stuff and am a gourmet foodie. Granted i got like, 5 things off my registry there, but now i get 10% off until feb 2010 and i just love thier stuff, man! Macy’s is good for a lot of random appliances (as is BBB) but WS is good for like, gourmet foodie little knick knacks all cool kinda stuff. And the best cookbooks!

    We did WS, BBB, Macy’s and Sur La Table — no complaints about any of them (yet — and hopefully we won’t have any issues at all!).

    We did BBB, WS and Amazon and are in love with all 3! BBB and WS are great stores for people to go in to. and Amazon is great for people who plan ahead or are coming from OOT!

    I registed at BB&B, smarthoneymoon & JC Penny. the only reason I did JC Penny was to get the big huge wedding planner (that I never use btw) and the free engagement photo (which we haven’t redeemed). LOL So, I’m thinking of replacing JC Penny with WS & Macy’s. One of our GM wants me to register at Macy’s bc he gets a discount. LOL

    my fiance and i have several mini registrations! haha but the one we are really sticking with is Kohls, because they have some pretty good stuff, and they aren’t too pricy which is a big factor because most of his family doesn’t have a lot of money

    I also registered at BB&B on Saturday and am stoked about the free things I am getting because I registered for a certain brand! Also, the sales lady told me that if all the items are not purchased then we get 10% off ALL items after the wedding, pretty cool!!

    We did Bed Bath and Beyond, Pampered Chef, and Wishpot.com. So far, we are happy with all three!

    I think it may be OK to register in multiple places but it really depends on where your guests live and if any of the above stores are located near them.

    We registered at BBB (there are BBB’s everywhere), Crate and Barrel (for the guests living near me) and Target. My only complaint is that I registered online for Target and pretty much everything I wanted from them was an online only purchase which doesn’t help the gift givers who want to go to the store. I wish they had more variety. Oh and I heard Target’s return policy is a nightmare.

    I did Macys and BBB. BBB is obviously amazing. Great policies. But Macys has the better completion program and will give you a percentage of the cost of gifts from your registry and any money you charge to your macys card back after your wedding in the form of a gift card. Pretty sweet deal.

    I chose to register at BBB.  I specifically chose NOT to register at Macys.  We went through BBB first, before going to Macys.  When we went to Macys, we saw many of the SAME EXACT things we had seen at BBB, only significantly marked up.  So while BBB doesn’t really have a great completion program, it doesn’t matter because even with the completion discount, Macys is so marked up.

    Also, BBB continues to take their 20% off coupons long after they have expired.  I just cashed in 12 the other day.  I’m having my family hoard them before and after the wedding.

    We registered at BBB, Macy’s and Target.  We didn’t have many real problems, other than a couple of relatively pushy consultants.

    We registered at BBB!  Also at Target…. I haven’t had to deal with either of them as far as returning items, but so far I’ve had a good experience with both.
