You do have a lot of guests.. As long as you’re not tweeting your registry updates, i think it’s fine. A lot of web-savvy people are going to just search your names at a store they like to buy from and would find your registry.

For a wedding of that size, four registries doesn’t seem like too much. Especially if the Crate and Barrel one is already complete and the Williams Sonoma one only has 15 items on it. I tend to think it’s better to have plenty of options, rather than not enough.

It’s better to have too much than not enough. Just don’t register for duplicate items. Also, many people do not shop online at all for one reason or another and only one of the stores you listed is found in nearly every state. The others are very regional and most people would be limited to shopping online only at them.

As someone who loves to cook, I enjoy checking out multiple options for gift-giving.  With one registry showing only 15 options, I think you are just fine.

By duplicate items, don’t order two different toasters or blenders, etc at different stores. Picking out a fine china set at one store and an informal set somewhere else is an entirely different ballgame and no one will find that odd. That said, not everyone follows what is on the registry either, even if they do check to see what you have. Case in point happened to an aunt a number of years ago. She and her husband registered at two similar type stores but only one registry had a blender. They ended up receiving 10 blenders (no joke) from folks who did check their registries and had to return 9 of them.

I think that’s more than fine! I don’t see why people get turned off from more than a few registries, because honestly, I think guests like a lot of options and having the convenience of picking a store in close proximity to where they live.

We have 4 as well but one is a secret. It’s only been told to a few close family members as it’s serving pieces from Tiffany’s to match the two sets my parents have that we will one day inherit. Multiple aunts contacted us saying our registry’s were almost empty (when there’s plenty) and did we want silver? So we set this up for those looking to give an “heirloom” type gift.
