This is a first marriage for both of us and we are in our 40s. And because we have merged 2 households he doesn’t think we need anything or should register. We aren’t having a large wedding at all but I keep telling him that we are going to get gifts whether he likes it or not so better to direct people to things we might want.
My question is where did everyone register and why that location? And how was your experience?
I’m thinking Crate & Barrel and maybe Bed Bath & Beyond but not sure yet. We aren’t taking a honeymoon right away but I already know that registering for anything along those lines is out of the question.

We’ll be registering at Bed Bath & Beyond because if, for some reason, we get duplicates or something that wasn’t on our list or whatever…we can exchange it for cash. Plus, you get 20% off after your wedding to try and “complete your registry.”
However, we are just now buying our first house and need a LOT of things!

I think we are going to register at Bed, Bath and Beyond and also an amazing store called Kitchen Stuff Plus. We will just be getting our first home so we need tons of stuff and I think those two stores would cover alot of items for the whole home.

- Wedding: November 2012 - Oak Tree Manor
We registered for a lot of kitchen basics at Williams & Sonoma (moved in together for the first time when we got married), and at two green living stores which are online-only – VivaTerra and Are Naturals. Those last two stores had a lot of beautiful things you won’t find at Bed Bath & Beyond or Macy’s – like bowls made from driftwood, wine glasses made from beautiful light-green recycled glass, and duvet covers hand-printed in India. Now our house is full of beautiful things that we did need anyways, that have some extra uniqueness and meaning – and they are mostly from sustainable sources, which is cool. If you’re feeling uninspired, check out their websites!
