@Nicoley1985:

I registered at Belk, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Target. Since you are from the North, I don’t think you have a Belk, but Macy’s is pretty much the same thing. We almost registered there, but there is only two in the whole State, so we decided not to. I have heard great things about them though, so I would go for Macy’s. Also, BB&B has been great! I love their website. You can manage everything online and it is super easy to navigate, so I would most definitely recommend them, as well.

I DO NOT recommend Target. We have had several issues with them already about things scanning incorrectly and then they take forever to delete off. Also, when a guest buys a gift off your registery, it could take WEEKS to update, so there is a chance that you would get double gifted, and they only give you store credit even if you have the receipt.

I haven’t heard much about C&B, but it seems to be a great place, but maybe a bit pricey. Good luck with your registry!

We did C&B, Bed/Bath/Beyond, Macy’s, and Target. I recommend NOT doing Target. The others were great and we haven’t had a single issue. Target has been nothing but a nightmare.

I second the issues with Target!  We registered at BBB, Dillard’s (not sure if you have those up North, but it’s a department store like Macy’s), and Sears (for FI’s tools haha).  We also have a registry on giftregistry360.com.  It complies registries from several major retailers (Macy’s, JC Penny, Williams-Sonoma, Target, Bloomingdale’s, and Crate and Barrel I think, there may be more too but I can’t remember) Plus you can add things to it that are on websites that you may not be able to set up a registry at.  We really liked it so we could add some things from different stores and for example we have a TON of stuff from Williams-Sonoma, a handful of things from Target and JCPenny on there plus some things that are from stores that don’t have registries.  That way it shows that we’re registered at 4 places (BBB, Dillard’s, Sears, and giftregistry360.com) and it doesn’t seem like we’re registered at a million places when in actuality we have items from several different stores.  So far there haven’t been any issues with people having trouble navigating everything 🙂

@Earlybride:  You should!  I’ve recommended it to my friends who are getting married and tons of people on here.  I love it!  I really like the fact that we can add things from websites that don’t have registries.

I am going to do Bed Bath and Beyond, My friend did Macy’s and she said it was horrible because she had a few items damaged during delivery and Macy’s didnt want to try and help out in any way with the items…. It was a bad experience
