We only registered at Macy’s so far, and it was a good experience. We don’t live together so it’s nice to pick out stuff to set up our home. He said he thought it was really fun, although he didn’t like the china I picked out (luckily he gave in though! I really had my heart set on it lol)

I think BB&B seems stressful b/c the bulk of the stuff is from there. I think you just pick whatever you want and don’t worry about the price points. Like for us, at Pottery Barn we’re going to do some really expensive furtniture, not b/c we think people will buy it, but because when we buy for ourselves, we’ll get the registry discount. Also expensive itmes are good b/c groups of people will go in on stuff. I don’t think any one person is buying my $180 china platter, but maybe my mom’s group of coworkers or something will pitch in. I say just have fun with it, someone’s gonna hvae comments no matter what so just do what you want!

The first time we went into our registrey we didn’t have fun at all.. we went after doing some other wedding stuff and the day was just too long. both of us were exhauseted and our feet hurt from walking around the store for hours.

We went again more recently to add a few more things, it was the only ‘wedding’ thing we did that day and we weren’t there near as long so we had a lot more fun.
