When we went to register at Bed Bath and Beyond, they registry guy told us we should register for 3x’s the amount of ppl invited. I was shocked, but understood his explanation as to why. We are having 150ppl at our wedding but have only registered for about 350 items between BBB and our honeyfund registries. How many items are on your registry(registries)?

We’re inviting 150 people and only registered for 89 items. I figure I can add more if that many people buy gifts off the registry.

We registered for 22 things, though we asked for more than 1 of some of those things (e.g. we asked for 8 place settings, 2 sets of glasses, etc.). So all told, maybe 35 things? We had 130 guests.
My advice is not to register for a lot more than you want. Remember that the registry guy’s objective is to sell as much stuff as possible.

we have 130 between our 2 registries. we’re having 175 guests. as a guest, i wouldn’t want to search through that many options. 3×175=525, that would be insane! i would rather just register for things we want and then add to it if we need to.
