    I think 3 stores seems crazy since you are having so few people attending.

    Register where you want!  I had 5 registries, 2 were the main ones, 2 were for convenance but didn’t’ have much on and one was just for me that no one really knew about, but I get the discount after.

    You can decide to tell some people about one and some about the other or you can tell them about all of them.  It’s sometimes hard to find what you want at just one store.  You also get the perks at all the stores after.

    If your wedding was much larger I would say 3 stores is way to big.  

    Can you do something like Amazon that pulls from other online stores as well?

    I would try to stick to two,if there are things you would like elsewhere, you can purchase them yourself after the wedding. And with that many guests, I really think 1 is probably enough.

    2 max.  We had less than 40 ppl so I registered @ 2 national stores that offered different price points.  Worked out great!!!!

    I filled out the poll before I realized you were having a small wedding. We are registering at 3 stores BUT we are having more like 130-150 people. I think 2 or less is probably better for a smaller wedding.

    We are registering at two places: Bed Bath & Beyond has just about everything you would ever need, but there were a small selection of things that I wanted that BBB didn’t have. I registered for those things on Amazon.com. Amazon also has a “universal wishlist” button. Basically add it to your browser’s toolbar, and no matter what website you’re on (Etsy, Barnes & Noble, etc) you click the amazon button, a drop menu will appear, and you can either add that item to your “wishlist” or your wedding registry. It’s pretty darn convenient. If people are comfortable ordering your gifts online, Amazon and BBB’s websites are really user-friendly, and there is always the option of going into an actual BBB store, for those who aren’t comfortable shopping online. I think two is fine, but three would probably be overkill. One is ideal, but often not possible.

    I say register for what you want.  You might find you don’t need 3 stores though, we were originally going to register at 3 and after going to BB&B we found we didn’t need as many stores.

    I would just try and do one store. I have a feeling that guests will feel overwhelmed and bring you money.

    You should check out MyRegistry.com! It lets you register from any store and lists everything on one registry. Then guests can see everything and choose for themselves what to buy and whether they want to buy online or in-store. I think this would simplify your whole situation! GL!
