    I was going to do multiple site registries, but after spending three hours in Bed Bath & Beyond, I vowed to never do it again. Plus I felt like I had covered all areas on what I wanted.

    I really feel like you should max it out at 4 registries.  Id take off Target – alot of that stuff you can find at BB&B and their inventory changes ALL THE TIME.  Plus Ive heard they are terrible to deal with for returns and exchanges.

    i didn’t realize there was a limit on registeries. bed bath has coupons all the time. i’m sure guests will find something there if you get a range of price points.

    We have four.  BBB and Macy’s (which have a fair amount of overlap), Williams-Sonoma (a bit of Macy’s overlap) and Sur La Table (unique kitchen tools mostly…no overlap with any other store).

    Geez I hadn’t put that much thought into it. We’re doing Bed Bath and Beyond and Target. I only want two. All of his family is from here, as are our friends so I know they can find them. But to be honest I see my besties giving us cash. I love Target so there was no way I was passing up a chance to go in there with a gun and pick things! FI doesn’t care about Target though, he would like to do the Home Depot one. For what home I don’t know, we’re renters!

    I’d also recommend nixing Target.  You can add anything you want from Target to your Amazon registry.

    I love the crate and barrel registry…the prices are the same all the time, unless they go on sale (they never go up like macys).  Plus something arrived in the mail broken and crate and barrel was very nice about replacing it…no hassle.

    I also say get rid of Target. Their return policy is a PAIN!! BBB has lots of stuff, and if its out of their price range, they can just give a gift card, right? I think it would be a nice gesture to register at Belk (if it’s stuff you want!). Happy registering!

    I have heard HORRIBLE things about Target & Macys but I am in love with our Honeyfund! HoneyFund.com 🙂

    We’re registered at Crate & Barrel, Macy’s, and a more local store to the town we’re getting married in.  I’ve never had any problems with Macy’s, (or C&B for that matter) and at Macy’s you get 5% in-store credit on anything your guests buy for you!
