We registered at The Bay and Home Outfitters. We also have a small video game registry on Amazon.ca (it would be really awesome if at least one guest got us a video game as a wedding gift lol).

@futuremrssassy:  4 seems like a lot.  But if you’re having 400 guests then 4 would be okay… What do you mean by cover your bases?  What stores do you want to register at and for what items?

I registered at 4 places total. Macy’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, Honeyfund and at Simplicity Gourmat. We are having a small wedding but I figure we can cover all bases with all budgets.

@futuremrssassy:  I think Walmart and Target are basically the same store (i.e., you can get the same stuff at either), so I’d only pick one of those.  If I were you, I’d do BB&B and Target because you’ll get everything covered between those two.

We registered at 4 Bed Bath & Beyond, Dillards, Sears (for his tools), and GiftRegistry360.com (which actually includes some things from Williams-Sonoma, Target, JCP, etc. but it compiles them all together)  We’ve not had a problem with it at all.  We both are from small towns with limited access to some of these places but we have family who are closer to some stores than others so it gives them variety.  The majority of our registry is at BBB though.  I was worried about 4 registries but I’ve actually had people tell me it was helpful for them.  I guess it just depends on the situation.

we registered at 3 stores and a honeymoon registry.  The macys and honeymoon registry were completely bought out.  The BB&B and C&B registries had maybe one or two things left on it.

I think it’s not the amount of places but the amount of items that matters.

I would say do BBB and then one other.  Sometimes if you have too many registeries it can look a little gift grabby to some guests.
