    Honestly I think the two you have are just fine!  I think the only reason to add on the Target one would be to have similar/same items so guests can price compare with BB&B.  I did this with Kohls and BB&B and even though it is convenient for guests I wish I wouldn’t have.  It’s been a bit of a pain because I have had to update it often to avoid duplicates (ex: I got four sets of mixing bowls at my shower!)

    we have 4 Bed Bath and Beyond, Macy’s (only about 25 items), Crate and Barrel, and Amazon.com for all the misc. stuff not covered at the other stores.

    i’m curious to see the results because i was wondering the same thing. i haven’t registered yet but i would like to register at macy’s and either bed bath & beyond OR target. i would also love crate and barrel for more of the decrative stuff but am worried 3 will look too greedy!

    I think you should keep it at two.  We did C&B and JCPenney.  Plus I’ve heard some really terrible things about Target registries!

    I agree that 3 makes it look excessive.  And I too have heard negative things about Target registries regarding their return policy.  Keep it at two.  And honestly when there is more than one I usually just head straight for BBB with my coupon!

    I’m not sure about it being too much, but something to consider is that whenever I have shopped for other showers at Target I found that a lot of stuff was not in stock in the store. They switch out stock a lot, or run out, etc. If you think a lot of people you are inviting won’t be shopping online I would avoid Target (It was hard for me because I loooooove Target!).

    I think 3 is fine!  But I am biased.  We’re doing an Amazon one, BB&B (because we need an actual store), and a honeymoon one.  We both live on our own and have SO much stuff already, so we’re just registering for things we don’t have and a few upgrades.  I’m hoping people like the honeymoon registry and don’t find it tacky.

    I think 3 is too many.  Keep in mind that a registry is not just a giant wish list of everything you’d like, it should be used as a guide to help guests know your china pattern, flatware style, colour scheme for towels etc.

    Can you not find kitchen appliances and serving platters at the same place?  This would allow you to combine your registries.

    @Klb5882: Just cause people do it all the time doesn’t make it not greedy.

    @Klb5882: I definitely don’t thinkl three is too many (I know someone who had 6!), but I don’t think you should feel pressured to add more items if you feel you have registered for everything you need.

    Are you having a shower? Maybe after you have a shower, you could add another store or more items if yours is running low. My mom also keeps telling me I need to add another store, but we found everything we need and want at two!

    I don’t think three is “too” much if you have a good reason for it, but if the only reason is your mom wants it, well, that’s not a very good reason. So for you, two sounds fine.
