I just did myregistry.com – you can add anything that’s for sale online onto one registry.  Amazon, BBB, Crate & Barrel, Target, random fair trade stores, etc!

We were really boring.

Bed, Bath and Beyond, Target and Macy’s.

We did Bed Bath and Beyond, Macy’s, and Sur La Table.

I had wanted to register at REI, but we need plates, towels, and sheets, far more than we need a tent and camping gear…

Etiquette Snob here (comes from my Career)

From an Etiquette point of view… the standard is to just register at one or two places… any more seems gift grabby (as if gifts are a major concern to you)

IF you do choose two places, therefore try to make them quite different from one another…

ie… A Department Store & a Specialty Store – a Specialty Store & a Big Box Store etc so a few examples of things might go together depending on your interests…

Macy’s and Barnes & Noble – Crate & Barrel and Home Depot – Bed Bath & Beyond and Bass Pro

The idea being that there is no “overlap” between merchandise in both stores.

Hope this helps,

our main registry was bed bath & beyond and we had a smaller registry at macy’s. macy’s has a tendency to be kind of pricey and that’s why we didn’t choose a whole lot of things from there. but their customer service was really good. returns weren’t a problem and everyone was really nice.

i’ve heard that target’s registry can be a pain in the butt to manage- things get discontinued, randomly get deleted/added, etc. so that’s something to keep in mind if you’re thinking about going with them.

We only registered at one store- The Bay. We made sure to include inexpensive items ($50 and under) and a few more expensive items like dishes & small kitchen appliances (between $100-$250)

Amazon and Target are my go-tos. 🙂

We did Target, Macy’s and Pottery Barn. Macy’s has amazing incentives (including free Macy’s money to spend after the wedding). I would strongly encourage it if they have one in your area.

We’ve started a registry at Target and are trying to decide between Crate and Barrell, Williams Sonoma, and Pottery Barn for our second registry.

I am really leaning towards Pottery Barn just because they have more decor stuff and we really need things like that. I wish Pier 1 did registries because we both really like a lot of the things they have there, but I think PB is a good option for that, just a little worried about pricing.
