Just a note from my experience, I’ve been married twice and had showers for both weddings and between the two weddings and three shower, I got ONE SINGLE PILLOW CASE. I know other people have gotten their bedding, but I didn’t and neither have my closest friends. I got towels, dishes, money, stemware, china, kitchen electrics, picture frames, candlesticks… all sorts of stuff, but no bedding (except the one pillow case).

@physicsbride:  I live in Canada and I plan to do my shower registry at Kitchen Stuff Plus (I’m not sure if you have that store in BC) Anyways is is very resonably priced and they have a wide assortment of different things not just for the Kitchen. I usually thought that bedding would be a bit overpriced for someone to buy as a shower gift and just figured it would be something we would eventually buy ourselves or ask our parents as a Christmas gift.

Can your mom  put out the word that gift cards to Winners/Home Sense would be appreciated?

You could find something you like on your own after the wedding at a very reasonable price.

The trouble with Winners/HomeSense is that the stock changes all the time so there is no way to pick out items, nor do they have a registry.

Or pick something from a website that ships to Canada?

I did not even add bedding to my registry, its so expensive, so we left it out. If we end up getting any gift cards we will use them towards the purchase of bedding.

@physicsbride:  Aww that sucks! How about Bed, Bath & Beyond or Jysk? Do you have either of those?

Have you tried Sears or Wal-Mart or Canadian Tire? I’ve never looked at their bedding prices though. When my sister got married she registerd for all the “little” things at Wal-Mart then at the Bay/Home Outfitters for the big ticket items.

Nobody buys anything at the Bay full price.  Honestly, I never buy anything there unless it’s at leat 40% off, and things go on sale frequently, and i think that’s really common knowledge?  I guess it sucks for guests that wait till the last minute though… but I think those are the same people who are most likely to just give cash. 

I received one sheet set, but didn’t get any of the other bedding we registered for though.  I think it’s just not a fun gift to buy. 

To actually answer your question though, we registered at The Bay, Bed Bath and Beyond and had an Amazon registry which was actually really popular.  Allowed us to find the cheapest price for things, and add them to a registry without actually registering at Wal-Mart.  Or if we just a had a couple things we really wanted from a particular store.

ETA: On the Amazon registry, you can give the guests the option justo mark stuff off as purchased when they buy it, so they don’t actually have to order online and pay shipping etc.  If they just walk into London drugs and buy your popcorn popper, they can just check it off kind of thing.

We have our registry at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Affordable and good quality bedding.

We registered at Home Outfitters, and honestly didn’t expect to get any of the more expensive items, like bedding.  What ended up happening was that some people were a LOT more generous than we gave them credit for, and others grouped together to buy some of the more expensive items.  That’s how we got our bedding.
