So far we’re registered at Macys and Crate and Barrel.
Macys has a program where you get 10% back (on a gift card) on everything you purchase at Macys with your Macys CC between now and your wedding. On top of that, you get 5% back on everything your guests purchase off your registry. I LOVE free money! 😀
Crate and Barrel just has a lot of fun stuff that we can’t find elsewhere.

We registered at Macy’s and myregistry.com. We choose Macy’s because it’s all over the east coast and accessible. We choose myregistry.com because we could pick from all of our favorite stores and not be limited by what’s in one store. We have many younger guests, and we’re hoping they’re comfortable shopping online.

Amazon.com and BBandB. We did BBB because we thought people would want to shop in a real store, but almost everyone has bought from amazon. Their universal registry is great, and returns have been super easy!

@kingytobe: I registered at Bloomingdale’s, Williams Sonoma, and Ann Sandras (a local place in VA- where I’m having my shower- that sells fine china for discount prices.
I am a total foodie so Williams Sonoma is a must, and Bloomingdale’s has a large price range and selection. Ann Sandras will allow people to get fine china at a lower price. I know all my grandmother’s friends are going to go the fine china route.

We’re doing BB&B and Crate & Barrel. BB&B has a pretty good selection of kitchen stuff and bed linens, and C&B has more nice, decorative things and better glassware. We also figured these are both stores where if we receive duplicates and need to return stuff, we (I?) will have no trouble finding ways to spend our store credit–for example, C&B has some really nice furniture that we could splurge on if we have like $500+ in merchandise credit.
C&B is also doing private parties for wedding registries on Sundays in Feb. You get to come in before the store opens and they do demonstrations and have food and drinks. I’m bringing my mom along and it should be fun, hope you guys who are registered there get to do it too 🙂

I also am doing MyRegistry.com. I love that I can pick lots of stores. I already have china from Macy’s, home stuff from CB2, and appliances from Sears. I really like that they “sync” with Macy’s. This way I still have a traditional registry from my technology-challenged guests and I get the completion discount from Macy’s – but I still have the convenience of registering and shopping online.
So much fun!

I’m going to one of those next week!
We are doing C&B but I think that might be it because we live in a tiny NYC apt and don’t want to register for tons of stuff. Is it weird to have just one registry? I’m hoping our guests who want to give us pressies will just do cash instead.

Its too early for us to register yet, but we will be doing BB&B, Macy’s, and Honeyfund. Our main one will be Honeyfund since we live together and already have household stuff. But for the shower and people who insist on buying a traditional gift we choose BB&B b/c we they have great stuff at reasonable prices and Macy’s becase we like to shop there.

We’re doing Amazon and BB&B; Amazon actually has a cool feature called a Universal Registry, and you can put items from other stores on it. BB&B because some guests may want to go to a dept. store; I know I’ve bought wedding gifts for others online only, I figure if the couple has it on their registry that’s good enough for me.

We just registered this past weekend at Target and BB&B and also have a wish list off of Pampered Chef.

We registered at Sur La Table because it is the only place we found dishes we liked. It would not have been my first choice because their registry is not all that user friendly. We will be registering at C&B in February.
I’m debating between BB&B or Macys. Really can’t decide.
How many places should you register? We’re only have around 120 guests.

We did Target, Macy’s, & BBB. We were originally going to do just Target & Macy’s until I noticed that a lot of Macy’s “sale” prices were the same as BBB’s regular prices. Blew my mind, considering people have told me Macy’s is more affordable than BBB because Macy’s has sales. Just goes to show you how retailers try to suck you in with “great” deals. Just because something is on sale doesn’t mean it’s a good price. Plus BBB has coupons all the time. There were still some things I liked at Macy’s, like a lot of the Martha Stewart stuff & my cake knife and toasting glasses. We picked Target because of the variety of things there… we have a fire safe & a file cabinet on our list there, amont other things. lol.
