    So far we are registered at Macy’s and Target, but we are thinking about adding a honeymoon registry.

    We had 3.  Didn’t intend of having so many, but some places had things others did.  We used BB&B, Crate & Barrel, and Pottery Barn (we only registered for cups and silverware there).

    Only one for the sake of my sanity (Bed, Bath and Beyond). We are only expecting 25-30 guests.

    Three, same as hoodjeam, BB&B, Target, and Pampered Chef. We’re thinking about doing a cash registry online towards a car, but it seems kinda [insert nicer word for "tacky" here]. We’re inviting over 400 people (guest list got out of hand with both of us having divorced parents so 4 families to deal with instead of 2), so we didn’t want to limit people, especially since some people are out of town and we didn’t know what stores they have in their area.

    @ everyone!!  If you haven’t already considered it you should definitely look over Target’s return policy before you use them as a registry.  I know SEVERAl people who have used them only to regret it later. 

    It is very common for people to forget to take things off of your registry after purchasing your gift, thus opening the door for gift duplication.  Target is very very stingy about taking things back, leaving you stuck with 7 salt shakers.   Not cool!

    I know they are handy and relatively inexpensive so many people overlook this but def consider this when using them.

    We registered at Target despite the warnings. Right at your registry intro page is Target’s return policy. You also have room for a small message (I managed to squeeze in someting about gift receipts). Our mothers will spread the word about our registries and will mention the gift receipt. Proper etiquette or not I think we covered our bases the best we could. Even though I took precautions, our take on the registry situation was that after five years together there wasn’t anything we registered for that we couldn’t run out and buy if it was an dire situation. So if we get 3 sets of steak knives I’m not really going to see that I’m losing out on 2 other gifts. There is always craigslist, ebay or freecycle – someone out there will want it.

    Ooh, they do have a yuck return policy at Target. But it was the only place that had a lot of things we wanted that was convenient for all of our guests. Hmm. Maybe we should take a few things off, at least anything that we could get elsewhere? Any thoughts?

    @LizSmith – I would stick with things you don’t mind getting multiples of from Target.  Like towels, sheets, glassware… etc.  Anything you can get elsewhere I would transfer.  Bed Bath and Beyond is a common one.  Still reasonably priced and carry a lot of the same things.  BnR09 makes a great point.  You can always get rid of it on Craigs list if you get multiples with no gift receipt.

    Yeah. We registered for some mid-quality furniture, like end tables and such, as well as some random decorate-y stuff. I think we can eliminate some. And I’ll spread the word through the grapevine that gift receipts will be greatly appreciated, poor etiquette or not. Thanks for the warning. I don’t know WHY we didn’t think of that. *facepalm*

    We have two decided for sure, and plan on adding a third.  FI would like to put a few things on a registry at a local store in our hometown (where we are having the wedding) b/c there  are a few people who do not order online and rarely leave the (small) town.  This would allow them to give a gift instead of limiting them to money or requiring that they depend on someone else to pick up a gift (should they choose to give us one!).  He also likes the idea of a honeymoon registery, and, as nice as it would be, I’m not sure I see many of our guests taking part in this.  We’ll probably end up with three and a just a few things at the local store.
