    We are just doing 3, i think.  Sears, walmart, and pennys.  basically we are really bad at making lists, if we want it we get it.  We decided these stores bc we grew up with them in our small towns and know that all our family has access to them.  We didnt want to make shopping for us a hastle.

    We did a honeymood site because we are lucky enough to have all the things we need pretty much for the house! We probably will still end up registering at a home store but haven’t decided what one!

     we registered with http://www.honeyfund.com Its been wonderful so far! they they dont take a % of your gifts!

    We did a honeymoon registry (through Honeyfund) and Target. The large majority of guests did the honeymoon registry online, or gave cash/checks at the wedding.

    So far just Macys.  Thinking about Crate & Barrell.  Also thinking about Target.  We need to decide soon!

    Williams-Sonoma b/c I <3 cooking

    Tiffany’s for silverware only, because I fell head over heels in love with the Audubon pattern (had I known how much drama this would cause, I would *not* have done it. I am normally a very frugal girl to a fault, and thought very carefully about whether to go ahead with this. I decided that silver is an heirloom, it doesn’t break, it gets better with age, and you only get married once, and I wasn’t registering for china b/c I was receiving my grandmother’s, so I did it. Future Mother-In-Law has no idea that I am normally very frugal, and so this registry has marked me forever in her mind as a spoiled, frivolous princess.)

    Macy’s for linens, everyday dishes, towels, etc. etc. etc.

    Ten Thousand Villages for unique, inexpensive, ethically sourced decor, serveware, table linens (this registry was supposed to be for our just-out-of-college friends so that they could get us something meaningful for under $30. Unfortunately, my aunts, grandmothers and in-laws keep commenting about how great the stuff is. Inside my head I’m like "GET OUT OF THERE! THAT IS NOT FOR YOU! P.S. buymeastandmixer")

    Macy’s because everyone goes there, and we know some friends who ONLY buy crystal for weddings.  Might as well pick it out!

    Williams-Sonoma for fun, fancy kitchen stuff.  And my plates.  And my bar glasses.  And my wine glasses.  Yeah, it’s pretty much one-stop shopping for us there.

    Target for appliances (other than the Kitcheaid mixer!), bedding, and random things I like–and anything that I liked that was significantly cheaper here.

    BBB, and Honeyfund

    Both were received pretty well.  The old people used the BBB one and the young, modern types used the Honeyfund and thought it was a good idea.

    We did Crate & Barrel (for dishes and a few other things) and Macy’s for kithcen appliances, towels, and sheets. Basically wanted to keep this simple because we’re having such a small wedding. I love your choices, though, and the topic in general, and wish we’d registered at Lowe’s or Home Depot!

    We’re registering with two charities: the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund (they help out PRCA rodeo cowboys who have been severely injured) and Heifer International (they provide livestock to needy families which improves their diet, income and the bloodlines of the community’s livestock). And for the "old fashioned types" we registered through wishpot for your normal household items.   

     @ GaBGal – REI is a cooperative outdoor gear store.  It’s absolutely fantastic.
