- Wedding: May 2011
FH and I decided to register for china because his family likes to buy it as wedding gifts. The pattern we like is $215 at Macy’s and $139 at Bed Bath & Beyond. (That’s a $75 difference!) We are registered at both places, but aren’t sure where to register for china, or whether we should double register.
Normally, this would be a no-brainer (register where it is cheaper) but there are two problems: 1) BB&B near FH’s family does not have a “china room.” So, guests couldn’t see the china in the store, or physcially buy the china and take it with them from the store. 2) The Macy’s registry was much more popular with FH’s cousin’s wedding last year. It seems like FH’s family might prefer shopping there.
I’m hesitant to register at Macy’s though because I think $215 might be too expesnive for a place setting (although FH’s cousin’s china was $186, and Macy’s does have sales sometimes). And, even if guests wanted to spend $215 on a gift, I would feel bad because they could have gotten it for $139.
What do you think?
