Hello! We’re having trouble (maybe just me, the groom) picking where to register and how to split things up… I think our list right now is Bed Bath, Crate and Barrel, and Williams Sonoma. Problem is, I don’t know what items are better at Williams Sonoma than at Bed Bath, etc. Do we go to both C&B and BB and compare silverware sets? Just seems so overwhelming. Our wedding is at the end of April. We also decided to go look at Macy’s if theres stuff we’re missing after doing our other registries. But how do we know that we may like something more at Macy’s? So much to consider, and it doesn’t help that I’m a very plan-oriented person that wants everything to be as efficient/right-the-first-time as possible.

I’m the same way, I have to do all my research before I can pick something. My Fiancé is the opposite! If he sees it and likes it, he buys it!
We did blueprint registry. We went to Bed Bath and Beyond and did one there, then imported it into blueprint. But it also allows us to add stuff from Kohl’s, Crate & Barrel, Amazon, etc. I then just literally googled “best everyday dinnerware” and “best everyday silverware” found that some were on every list I looked at (fiesta ware and Lenox silverware) so we decided on colors and styles and just registered for it.
I didn’t want to overwhelm myself or my fiancé. I know that I have to watch myself with analysis paralysis, so once I did my research and read reviews online, we went to the store, I showed him which brands got the best reviews and we picked out the colors and styles and that was it!
