We were going to do three, but once we since our wedding is going to be small (only about 55 guests) we decided on two.

Five does seem kind of overboard, how many guests are you expecting?

We registered at 3 places, I don’t think its too many.  Although one registry is just china and crystal (and we registered for the china and crystal at two places).

We’re doing 2 but I don’t see a problem with 3 or 4. Depending on what you get from Sears (I know they have a lot of tools other places don’t really carry) I think adding that would be ok since it’s a completely different type of gift – you can’t exactly register for a weed wacker at BB&B! LOL

Oh & FYI if it helps at all – Wm Sonoma and PBarn are owned by the same company, there’s not much difference.

I agree with the others that I’d focus on 3 registries.  I’ve been getting gifts lately and keeping up with just returning items at 2 stores is plenty of work.  Keep in mind too that people will give you cash so you can always try to use that on the appliances etc.  That’s what we are going to do.

We registered at 3 places and wanted to register at a 4th, but they quit doing registries. So no tools for the Fiance.

I wanted to do 3, but it looks like it will be 4. I’m doing Pottery Barn (for my dishes and a few extras), Macy’s, Kohl’s, and Target. My mom convinced me to give people options and that most wouldn’t buy from PB. I’m also having around 200+ guests and 2 showers. I wish I could register for CASH!! lol

We did 4, but only one of them has the ‘bulk’ of our items and the rest are complimentary. I don’t think it matters how many different registries you have – an Amazon registry is kind of like having maybe 20 different registreis, right?

We are currently at 2 and will probably add a 3rd to have better options for silver and china. I think BB&B/Target is essential for kitchenware type things. Quite a few items we had scanned at Bloomingdales we found for less at Bed Bath and figured helping our guests save (not to mention those 20% offs they flood your mailbox with) would be a nice gesture.

Maybe as the 5th one, you do giftcards for that store so it doesn’t seem so demanding. That way you can try to get your appliances and large items on sale at a later date.
