So I am having a small problems. Where most of the invitees to the wedding live there is no Macy’s, BBB, or any of the normal wedding registry stores. So I was thinking about registering at Kohls and Younkers. Thankfully Younkers is the same as Herbergers, Boston store, and Bon-Ton so the registries can be looked up there. But my problem is do you think these two businesses will have most of what we would want to register for, which is mostly kitchen and bathroom stuff.

I think Kohls definitely would. I know several people who registered there even though other stores were available. Alternatively, you could just depend on people ordering online and having it shipped.

I was thinking abuot doing that, but many of the people we are inviting either don’t have internet, or wouldn’t know how to use it.

I am in the same situation as you. We live an hour or so from any stores like that. The only thing around here (which is where most of our friends, relatives, etc. live) is Wal-Mart.

The first time I got married, I registered at Dillards bc we did china and the whole bit. Getting married the second time has given me a bit of perspective and you have to consider the economy and that you may want to register places where the prices are really good, they have frequent sales and a large variety of items and prices. Some more budget minded brides (who I have enjoyed shopping for bc of the prices and range on their registries) have registered at JcPenney, Target and WalMart. My FI and I have registered at Home Depot, Sears and we also did a honeymoon registry on Honeyfund.
Since I own my house and he is moving in here, we wanted to register for some items to enhance our home-porch rockers, a firepit, FI really wanted a blower to add to our yard equipment, camping equipment, as well as sheets, towels, a few small appliances (I love my little 4 cup coffee pot, but it’s just not enough for two!). I was really disappointed that we couldn’t register at Lowe’s, but they are discontinuing their registry at the end of July. Just some thoughts and ideas. I know that JcPenney & such may not be as glamourous, but their selection is great, sales are terrific and you are probably more likely to get things from your registry if you register places that people can access online and they can even have gifts shipped right to your house.
