I’m tempted because the stores I’m registered at don’t have everything that I need. Have any of you done your gift registry on Amazon and if so how was it? I’m just not sure if it’d be easier or more difficult for the guests. I know some members of my family absolutely hate shopping onine.

Register with Amazon but also register at a traditional brick and morter store like Target for those who don’t shop online.
I didn’t register with Amazon but we have been to weddings where B&G have. We have purchased gifts for people from Amazon when they have registered there.

- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
Amazon’s one of our 3 (also did crate & barrel and macy’s).
Pros: -the universal registry- you can add items from other stores (ex. bed bath & beyond-there were only a few items we were interested in, so it didn’t make sense in registering for 5 items there)
-Pricing- you can add notes in the comment section- by the cuisianart griddler, I put “also available at C&B, amazon is usually $10 less.” Since a lot of the items fluctuate, you can put “often on sale for $X”- the notes section is great.
Con: return policy isn’t as good as brick & mortar (I can return items to C&B w/ no problems for 90 days after the wedding.) So I’d only register for items you are sure of.

I was in a wedding last summer where their only registry was Amazon, and it’s one of our three (also, Macys and C&B). For the wedding last summer, it was really successful and they got a LOT of stuff from it, so it was great. For us, it’s mostly a tool registry, so we’ve gotten a few things but not many. I think it’s definitely a good option and if a good number of your guests are tech savvy at all, it should be successful. Have fun!
