Those places seem like they would all have similar stuff. 

There is really no reason to register in multiple places, IMO.  The only exception to this is if you can’t get all the same stuff.  So maybe one for china, and a second for household items.

I would also consider how many guests you are having.  Remember you are going to have to buy out whatever isn’t purchased (presuming you want/need it) so having a tighter list is often a good idea.

We just did BBB and Target because I had a somewhat small shower (25 people) and in our area, people tend to gift cash for weddings. My Target registry was a pain, so I wouldn’t recommend that. My BBB one was awesome and they were super helpful, so I’d definitely suggest them. I might add Macys if I was expecting to get a lot of gifts. They have very nice items.

We registered at Target and Macys because we wanted things in all price ranges, but wanted to get some upscale things too. Personally, the 3 stores you chose all kind of have the same things, so I would just narrow it down to 1 to make things easier

Both my daughter’s chose BBB. I like all the coupons they have and shipping on $49 and up is currently free. The one who is already married got cards (checks, cash, gift cards) from 95% of her wedding guests, and about 5% gift cards and the rest boxed gifts, for her shower. You might want to look where the stores for these chains are located, in the areas where your guests live?’m close to Target & BBB, but I wouldn’t travel the distance to the closest Penneys.

andielovesj:  Why would you need to buy out what’s not purchased on the registry? If something hasn’t been bought, doesn’t it just stay on the list, with no repercussions or obligations to the registry-maker?

Kazza:  You don’t HAVE to, but you don’t want 1 /2 a set of dishes, or 3 out of 10 wine goblets, a bed spread but not the pillow cases.

So if people don’t buy the full set (and many won’t) you need to finish it.
