I am way behind and need to start registering. Did anyone use one of the sites that lets you register at as many different stores as you like but people only need to go to that one site to find it all?
If so, what did you choose? What didn’t you choose and why? Any tips are appreciated!!

We’re using myregistry.com. It’s easy and auto-updates registry changes from a bunch of sites. You can also add items that are for sale on sites that don’t have registry features.

We used amazon.com, there’s a universal registry button.

Just a word of advice about myregistry.com, my BFF and Maid/Matron of Honor used it for her wedding in November. She got A TON of duplicates because it didn’t do a good job of automatically updating. She said she pretty much had to manually do it. After hearing about her experience, I would use Amazon.

We are using amazon. Our wedding is still a ways off, so I don’t have info on how many people used it, but it was a breeze to set up!
I really liked how we can read reviews and everything right on amazon and compare options, and then add on whatever items we find from other places. It is up to your guests to report if they bought an item, but I used it for a friends baby registry and it was super easy.

kimmo416: I wonder if your Maid/Matron of Honor had duplicates listed and maybe that was the problem? For instance, I have some items listed on macys registry AND williams sonoma registry AND bed bath & beyond registry. If someone goes and buys that item from the macy’s registry, then the macy’s one is listed as purchased on myregistry.com, but I’d still need to delete the item from the williams sonoma registry and the bed bath & beyond registry.
There’s no site that I know of that updates items across registries (meaning if someone buys something off a registry at one store, I don’t think any sites will list that item as purchased from some other store’s registry).
Also, guests can always buy things and not officially purchase them from any registry (even if purchasing from the stores you’re registered at), so no matter what compilation site you use, you will need to manage your registries.
It hasn’t been tough at all. As soon as we receive anything or see that anything is purchased, I make sure to delete any duplicates on other registries.

I used myregistry.com and loved it! And there were no problems at all with duplicates or the site not updating correctly.
