We registered for our china at Amazon because the only other local store that we could locate it was Dillards, but it’s always backordered at Dillards. Most other stores (BBB, Macy’s, Bloomies) don’t carry it. Well, our shower is over and only 1 person has used our Amazon registry, while our Macy’s and C&B registries are about half done. I asked my mom and she thinks that people won’t use the Amazon registry because you can’t go into a store and shop.
So, I think I will create a Dillard’s registry for the china. Should I put a note explaining this on our wedding website? I’d say something like: “We initially registered for our china pattern with Amazon because there are usually quantities available for immediate shipping and because Amazon does not charge for sales tax or shipping fees for these items. However, we understand that some of our friends may prefer to go to a store to place an order so we have also created a china registry at Dillard’s.”
My etiquette questions are:
1. I’ve always thought that it was unseemly to have more than 3 registries. Should we delete one of our current registries to make room for a china registry at Dillards?
2. Is it OK to change registry stores after the shower, but before the wedding, or will this cause too much confusion among guests? (I don’t want Aunt Sally going to Macy’s when there’s no registry at Macy’s anymore.)
3. Should I add the explanatory note to our website, or should the bride not say anything about gifts?
