    We will have registered at a total of 3 stores. We have them all in different prices ranges as well. Macy’s, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Walmart.

    I just registered at Target due to the economy and a lot of my friends and relatives don’t have much now a days. I wanted to be conscience of that.

    Just Bed Bath and Beyond for us.  The only other place we would have considered is Macy’s, but their prices are pretty much exactly the same as BB&B.  There’s only a few things there that we would want, and just not worth it to have a second registry.

    We did 3. Bed Bath and Beyond, Crate and Barrel, and Home Depot. I thought Macy’s was much more expenssive then Crate and Barrel.

    since your mom works for the 2 companies, I think it makes sense for you to register for them both. I would do the 4 stores so you have a larger price range.

    Crate and Barrel actually has a lot of affordable stuff!

    We are registered at

    1) Crate and Barrel

    2) Williams Sonoma

    3) Target!

    4) Bed Bath and Beyond

    Target is for the other cool stuff (a Wii, bluray player) that we couldnt get at those other places

    We did BB&B as well because they have much cheaper pots and pans

    We are doing 4, but since the invitations were printed Home Depot no longer has a registry so it’s down to three. I personally wish we only did two Macy’s and Crate and Barrell, but we are doing Macy’s, Crate and Barrell, and Target. I added Target for guests thinking things would be lesse expensive, but to be honest most of the stuff is higher quality and at a better price at Macy’s.

    I don’t think four is too much, just make sure you have enough items to spead out of four registries.

    We just did 2 – Crate & Barrel (a MUST for me!) and Amazon.com

    The beauty of the Amazon.com registry is the Universal Registry button where you can register for things at pretty much ANY online store and add it to just the one registry (I think Miss Rainbow blogged about that).  So while we only have 2 physical registries, we’ve put some stuff on the Amazon one from a few different places.

    i registered at 2, bb&b and target. even with just two i still had trouble managing the registries (somehow an ice cream scoop and some other little items snuck onto both registries), and i felt like it was plenty for us to choose from, if not too much. too much overwhelms me!

    We did 3 – Macys, Target and Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Something to also consider is the location of some of your guests. You want to be sure to register at places that are accessible to them, as well. (The three I listed above are great, as they are large chains and also allow you to view registries online.)

    We did Macy’s, Kohls and Bed BAth & Beyond.  All were good for different reasons. Macy’s handled some China defects and crystal breakage in shipping expertly. Kohls just took back and exchanged a Shark sweeper that I had only used a few times before it stopped working. I didn’t have the recipti because it was a shower gift and was not on the registry as I had a Shark hand vac on the registry.

    Macys, Williams Sonoma (b/c we love to cook), and Amazon.  We are contemplating a honeymoon registry, but probably won’t do it.

    I think 4 is fine.  Plus, a lot of places give you discounts for completing your registry, so even if you don’t get some of the things from your registry you can use any cash or gift cards you get for your wedding to get the things you want for cheaper!

    We did Macy’s, Crate & Barrel, and Williams Sonoma (although the WS is smaller than the other two)
