I wanted to second Crate & Barrel – they were fabulous! The one and only place that didn’t either lose our registry or give us a hard time about anything. Their stuff is quality and they just have really awesome customer service. They always give your guests gift receipts and actually tape them to the inside of the box when they’re packing it up for you…they rock.

I’m so sorry you had a bad experience.  But I had a really good experience with Target.  Yes I agree their online/in-store items can be confusing but I stalked my own registry like no other.  I constantly was making sure items we registered for were both in store and online.  Also I would update things to make sure everything would be clear & in stock. 

It also seems they recently updated their registry return policy.  At first it seemed (like many others) hopeless with broken and non-recipted gifts we need returned/exchanged. 

But then!!! all we had to do was print out the list of what people got for us in the in-store kiosk and BAM, we got 100% returns instantly!  It was that easy!  Good luck to everyone in this situation!

i just cancelled my target – well more like moved almost everything off that i could find comparable items for at b, b, b. i had the same experience as Uskadelig: no gift receipt and they could only give me $2 back for a $15 item and all i wanted was full store credit. they also no longer stock the majority of my registry items or there are limited quantities. i’ve had it. i switched three weeks out from my wedding and updated our website. i also put a note at the top of our target registry page that most of our items from that registry moved to b, b, b. i hope our guests figure it out….

I have heard horror stories about Target, both from the boards and my friends.  One of my friends had stuff added to her Target registry that she didn’t want and had a hard time returning.

Plus they gave money to a political campaign I morally oppose.

It’s unfortunate though, because there is a target within walking distance of my Fiance and my place.  We live in the midwest where they are everywhere, but decided to go with BB&B.  We’re also doing a charity registry so that’s an option for people who don’t live near a BB&B.

I didn’t do a Target Registry because it’s a PITA to return stuff (as everyone else has pointed out). My sister had her baby registry there, and she got duplicate Rocking Horses, and they wouldn’t let her return it! I just don’t want to deal with it. That’s why we did BB&B and Macy’s… easy enough!

We did W&S and Macys, and it was a great experience with both, and both have a great return policy.  They both also give you a percentage off of things on your registry that you purchase after the wedding for a year.

We did register way too early at W&S and had to do a new registry, and it was nearly impossible to delete an old registry.

Oh man, I’m nervous about my registry now. It’s time for me and Mr. Dear to register, and I have nooooo idea how to do it.

We registered at Target, Walmart, and Kohl’s… No major issues yet… I noticed one thing added to my Target registry that I didn’t want, but no big deal.  Haven’t had showers yet to know how guests do with them 🙂 We’ll see! I didn’t want to go to BB&B or other places because they’re so much pricier… Hope this works out!
