Nooooooo. This is just my personal, anecdotal experience, but you may not have time to delete duplicate items once someone has bought them, and then guests run the risk of doubling up gifts. I’m pretty sure my cousin did this (overlapping items on his registry), and I was all proud of myself when I cought a bunch of items that went together in a cute way (teapot/mugs/etc). Well come to find out that his other registry has the same thing on it, that someone else has already bought! I know that they can just return it for cash, but I felt annoyed that the time and $ I spent picking out the items were pretty much wasted.

ETA: I know I don’t necessarily peruse both registries a couple has. I usually just pick 1 and run with it.

I agree- it may be uncomfortable also at your shower if you get 2 of the same item several times!
