I’m starting my bridal registry online now at BBB and there are some items like the KitchenAid Stand Mixer that are available in different colors, but when I search for find in store it says that there are none available in a store within 50 miles of my location.
I’ve seen that at Kohl’s a lot too – a lot of the items say online exclusive.
Anyone run into this? Should I try to register for something that is available in most stores as well? I assume if people aren’t looking to shop online then they just won’t buy it if they can’t find it.

For expensive items like a KitchenAid, I don’t think it matters if it’s online or in-stores. If someone is going to spend that much on you, they will plan ahead and not be running to the store the day before the event. (Stores don’t have room to stock 4 different models of Kitchen mixer in 10 different colors each.)
For items under $50, I’d say it’s best to stick mostly to in-store items.

@abbyful: I was just wondering with regards to BBB because in store you can use those 20% off coupons. So…if someone was getting one for me, to get the one on my registry, they’d have to spend an extra $60 if I registered in a certain color to opt to purchase it online.

Shoppers can order online only items at BBB and still use their coupons. This is even easier because they’ll have your registry list – the store can look those items up with no problem.
I’m trying to register for plenty of in store items, but not worrying too much because most stores (Macy’s, BBB, etc.) will order for you. People also know that gift cards are a good option. At the end of the day, you need to register for what you want and need.
