I saw this on my Macy’s registry the day after I did the registry. What I think is that maybe Macy’s adds coordinating items that “go with” things, like dinnerware items to go with the set you ordered. Kind of sneaky. I took some stuff off and meant to ask about it, but I forgot.

I read that with Target registries, some brides were seeing random things show up on occasion, but it was because the buyers paid for their personal items also in the same transaction, and they somehow got added as “purchased” on the couple’s registry list, even though they obviously weren’t wedding gifts (think baby diapers and potato chips and paper towels, etc.).  Maybe that’s happening?

If one of your guests buys something from your registry as well as additional gifts for you that you didn’t register for, it will show up as fulfilled on your registry list (to inform other guests so they don’t purchase the same off-registry items). If you don’t have many items on your registry, guests will often buy you extra stuff your didn’t ask for. I guess you can just return it for stuff you want.

They told us at a Sip and Scan that if you add something they go through and add the rest of the set for you, although we did not experience that.

lol @spaniel — you mean you DON’T buy yourself fancy cake servers all the time while you’re out shopping at Macy’s?  πŸ™‚

The returns process was really easy for me at Macy’s, so hopefully you won’t have too much trouble.  Unless these people are going to give you the cake server in advance, and expect for you to use it during your reception or something…

I don’t have a Macy’s Registry but that’s really wierd and a little rude of them to add things you didn’t register for. You obviously didn’t register for them for a reason, you either don’t have room for it or don’t need it.. It just makes more work for you having to return it all.

I have a Macys and Bed Bath registry.  The Macys one hasn’t done that to me and I didn’t register for all the pieces to my set.  My Bed Bath registry has done that I put a set of sheets on there but yet another set appeared in the same shade different brand so I think it is someone who bought the item and they added it for me so I don’t duplicate the item.

YES! totally annoying. We purposely registered only for the fine china pieces we’d use, and good thing we checked… All kinds of gravy boats, sugar and creamers and random bowls were added, PLUS, (12) of a 5-piece set. WTF? Thank goodness we caught it.

It also DIDN’T add the luggage we scanned in store, even though it was confirmed on the scanner.   Pffft.

This happened to us at bed bath and beyond. The funny thing was that some of the extras they bought weren’t for us (coffee filter and box fan), but some of them were (bag of chocolate for the fondu pot they got us).
