I think more registries are not greedy: people like choice!

I don’t think 3 registries is too many.

For my baby shower, I did a lot of registry stalking so I knew exactly what was bought up until the day of my shower. Then as I opened presents, to my surprise there was a lot more that was bought off my registry. Obviously a lot of people went shopping the morning of my shower. I buy gifts for showers far in advance, but I think I’m the minority.

That’s why I think places like BRU and Target are good to register at. They might now have the exact things that you want, but it’s easy for guests. Especially all the last minute type ones.

I’m among those who believe that the more places guests have to choose from, the better, so I wouldn’t worry about 3 registries! As for me, I usually go in person to the store if I’m going to the shower, maybe 1-2 weeks ahead. If I can’t go, I usually order online and ship directly. For the most part, our guests who didn’t come ordered online and used our Amazon registry, although a few people also used Amazon and came to the shower. They ordered their gifts pretty early.

Three is fine!

My cousin registered six different places for her wedding if it makes you feel any better.

By The Way, it’s great that you’re supporting a local store!

There was no such thing as a baby registry when I was pregnant with my DS, so I missed this wave of awesomeness!

My sister is 20 weeks now and I keep telling her to register everywhere. I LOVE buying baby gifts. The more options I have, the better!
