Mrs. Fro Yo’s blog about her registry really has me thinking about mine. If you haven’t read it yet, do! It’s wonderful.
We’re registered at Amazon.com and I’m wondering who else is, or who else DID? I’d love to know some things you would have done differently, or any brainstorms you have.
Aside from only putting stuff on there we really need plus a few things we really want and putting our wedding website address on our invitations (it has all sorts of info including registry on it), I’m not sure what else to do. We’re also registering at Macy’s.
So, who else?

We did. There’s just so much more on Amazon. We also registered at Macys too. No one’s bought anything yet, but Mrs. Fro Yo’s post has me a little nervous about the amazon registry!

We registered at Amazon for the baby, mainly because we found that the prices at Amazon were so much better than at Babies R Us, and because Babies R Us didn’t carry all the hippie baby things that we wanted 😉

We too are registering at Amazon! Since we live in a super small town and the next closest shopping center is 1.5 away!!!!!!

We’re registered at Amazon, and actually, only at Amazon. So, yeah, that post has me worried, now. Luckily, I think most of our guests are web savvy… I’ll cross my fingers.

We did – DVDs and a PS3 and now our plates because they got discontinued. 🙁

We did, and I’m really not too worried because my mom’s been buying things for me for Christmas off Amazon the last few years…she can help any non-web-savvy people if need be. 🙂 And, we found that prices through Amazon are considerably less/more competitive than BBB and Macys.

Yep, I’m worried too!
We only have a honeymoon registry through PayPal and an Amazon registry. So far, at about 5 weeks out, we’ve only had 2 gifts purchased off the Amazon registry and 1 off the honeymoon registry. Of course, we didn’t have a shower, so that could be why we’ve gotten so few gifts so far. Either that, or we’re going to get a lot of cash or a lot of junk we don’t need or want.
Today on our wedding website I actually went and added a little “(most items qualify for free shipping)” on the page, under the link to our Amazon registry. Maybe that will help?

Bed Bath & Beyond for china, Target for common household stuff, and Amazon for those odd items that aren’t anywhere else for the price.
My only concern is about the return policy for items that are through a third party merchant, so I try to register only for items that are through Amazon itself. Even if a third party merchant has a good return policy, I think it would be a pain to handle different return policies.
I had one person tell me to mark an item from my Target registry as purchased, because she was purchasing it through Amazon.

Aww, I didn’t mean to make anyone nervous!! This was my experience, and who knows, your guests might appreciate that you picked a super easy place to shop. My young friends typically picked amazon over crate and barrel, but the older people typically shyed away from it. And for us, the older people bought us way more gifts. When my friends are registered at amazon, I totally buy from there, so it just depends on your guests.

For those who have registered on Amazon – what are your favorite registry picks? We’re registered at BB&B and Pottery Barn for most of our kitchen/bedroom stuff, and want to include some fun things on our Amazon registry.

I am looking at both Amazon and myregistry.com -is one better than the other?
I am using the universal registry to be able to register for things from small (some local) boutiques rather than just big box stores.

The Amazon registry is awesome! If you haven’t done it already, you should add the little add to registry button. It lets you add anything from any website right to your Amazon registry. Very convenient!

I love the Amazon registry. We registered for a lot of expensive appliances on Amazon because we wanted people to see that you can get a really great deal on those items. A lot cheaper than Crate and Barrel. We also chose 2 brick and mortar store for those adverse to online purchasing.

we registered on amazon, and i’m not really worried about it since we also have registries at crate and barrel and BB&B. our friends have been on our registry already, so i’m pretty sure it will get used.
