We too registered at Crate & Barrel and Bed, Bath, and Beyond as well as Amazon. I’ve heard different things on how much and how many items to register for based on numbers of guests. I just registered for all the things we wanted and left it at that. I also plan on keeping an eye on it as we get closer to showers and the wedding…as items are purchased, I can add more if need be.

I would caution you against registering on a honeymoon website. This is a highly debated topic etiquette-wise. While it sounds like a fun and easy idea, you are essentially asking your guests for money as when you register for something like swimming with the dolphins per say, you get cash, not the actual excursion. Also, there is a cut taken from the cash from the company who you register with. Some people find it tacky. JI’m not saying they’re good or bad, just explaining why you should be cautious with honeymoon registries.

I’m registered at Bed Bath (about 105 items for 150 guests) and Honeyfund.com.  I also work at Bed Bath and the “double the guest count rule” is to account for the shower and to give guests plenty of choice.  I agree that it is excessive.   We really are the best store for bridal registries and I’m not just saying that because I work there.  They kind of suck as an employer but the registry perks, selection, pricing, and coupons are pretty great. 

 

As for the honeymoon registry, times have changed.  I bought a house and we already live together. Paying for the wedding ourselves will also make it hard to have a nice honeymoon.  We have just about everything we need and memories from an amazing honeymoon are more important to us.  Honeyfund actually doesn’t take a fee unless your guests pay with a credit card and even then it’s only 2.5%. So far I’ve had 3 people contribute to the Honeyfund and we’ve had so many people (even older folks) tell us what a great and practical idea it is.  Oh, and we are going to Sandals in St. Lucia as well!

@blankenshiptobe:  We did the same, as well as one local place in my home town at my mom’s insistance.  They allowed us to put power tools on our registry, which had me sold.

Crate and Barrel & Bloomingdales. If I could start over again, I would have registered at Bed Bath Beyond instead of Bloomingdales.

We are registered at Macy’s, Amazon, and honeyfund.

Amazon is for all the things we’d want from all corners of the internet, but just puts it all in one place.

We’ve already planned and paid for our honeymoon, but figured a honeyfund would be okay so that we can add specific events that we’re interested in doing to our week.
