I’m sure this has been asked a billion times, but where did all you Bees register?
I know I want to register at Crate & Barrel for home stuff like plates, glasses, decor, etc., as I love their style, but I also want to register somewhere that’s better for kitchen stuff and appliances – we don’t have much right now, as we have a tiny kitchen (but we’re moving in a few weeks) and everything we do have is super cheap and needs to be upgraded. I’ve heard the Target registry is kind of difficult to manage/figure out, and I don’t really love Bed, Bath & Beyond, so I’d love to hear other suggestions!

We’re doing Crate and Barrel and Macy’s for almost the same reason as you – C&B for all our plates, serving dishes, flatware, drinkware and some cookware and appliances and Macy’s for more appliances, vacuum, towels and bedding. Macy’s has been great to work with!

Anthropologie, Crate & Barrel, Macys, and Amazon’s Universal Registry

Thinking of Sur La Table and C&B. I’ve also considered Macy’s but he isn’t thrilled about it yet.

We registered at Overstock.com. But I’m also trying to decide on a local retailer to register at for all of our guests that aren’t in the “techy” world yet. We live in a pretty rural area, so I’m stuck with Wal-Mart, K-Mart or Bon Ton. Let us know what you decide!!

I registered at Bed Bath & Beyond and Macys. Both places have great kitchen, home, & bridal things.

We’re planning to register at Williams-Sonoma and Bed, Bath, & Beyond – we want to be able to give our guests a wide range of prices. 🙂

Crate and Barrel and Bloomingdales. Bloomi’s is awesome to deal with on the web, have awesome pots/pans/appliances/china selection and most items are free shipping so that’s nice for guests.

Thanks, everyone! It looks like Macy’s could be a good second option.

We did macys and bed, bath and beyond. I loved macys , but bbb not so much since they use surepost to ship and that means I have to pick up my packages at a far away post office :-(. For people who don’t live in a city, this would be a non-issue.
We also used myregistry to do a universal registry. I loved it, but only 2 gifts have been bought off it even though our 2 other registries have been bought out.

I used myregistry.com as a universal registry, but like missadventure85 said, I think it will be underused compared to our Bed Bath and Beyond registry. I mostly put things from brick-and-mortar stores on the myregistry (Home Hardware, Target), and encouraged people to buy different models from other stores if they wanted… more like a generic wishlist than specific items. The weddings in a few weeks, so we’ll see how it goes.

We used Walmart and Honeymoonpixie.

We did BBB, Target and JCPenney.
We were able to find great things at them all for replacements, upgrades, or just things we have always wanted but have never bought ourselves. So far, the BBB has been the most popular.
I mainly did JCP for a bedding set we wanted, but were still able to find a few more things to add to it (towels, and some kitchen items). I was iffy on Target, but made sure the items we registered for would be in stock or at least easy to find for our guests.
