As I have gone to each store, I realized that I need things that I cannot find at another store.
My Fiance and I plan on registering for a new tv. We know no one will get it, but would like to use the special deal that the stores give couples on the items on their registeries for up to a year after the wedding. I have an idea of what kind of tv, but would like the help of sales people at American(a store that sells tv’s) so I make sure I register for the kind we have in mind.Only the tv will be on the registry at this store, nothing else. I cant get that kind of service on Amazon.com
My Fiance has a dog and I have found that only Amazon has a good selection of products for her. So I have a registery there.
Then I have a registry at Sears. My Fiance always gets his working boots wet and I have been looking for some kind of product that will dry his boots out evey night if nessesary. I have found that product at Sears.
At last I have a registry at Bed Bath and Beyond for obvious reasons. This is my main registry and willl be listed first.
So in total I have 4 registries. Anybody else? I have heard having more then 3 is greedy, but with my situation its not.
Any others have more then 3?? Same reason as me, or something else?

I have 3, my main one is Amazon and then I have Macys and BB&B for people who would prefer to go out and buy a gift in person. Do you think that people will actually buy you dog products as a wedding present…?

@Earlybride: I suppose it depends on how many guests you’re having. If you’re having 200 then 4 registries might make sense. If you’re having 100 people or less, then it seems a bit extreme.
@primp: A friend who was really crazy about their dogs didn’t register for any dog stuff, but I added into my wedding gifts to them a dog themed scrapbook and dog themed scrapbooking items.

Just use the knot’s affiliated site 360giftregistry.com – it will combine all your registries for you.

@Earlybride: I don’t think that’s greedy. I like having other options for shopping besides BBB or Macy’s. It’s not like you are expecting every one to buy everything on your registry, so I don’t know how it could be seen as greedy?

His DOG has a registry? I love my puppies and feel strongly that you should do it if you really want to but his dog? ( I have a love hate relationship with my Fiance dog) IMO the registry should be for YOU TWO. ( sorry pup!)

So is the boots thing the only thing you’re registered for at Sears? I would probably just buy that item myself and stay with the three registries.
ETA: I’m also surprised at the dog registry, because I’ve never seen anyone register for their pet LoL

@primp: Like a dog gate and things. yes. Its what we need. I dont see y not.
@Cappugcino: We’re inviting over 200. And 2 of the registries have only 1 to 4 itmes. Not a lot at all.

You could just not tell anyone about your TV registery, especially if you are just using it to the deal. That is what I did with one of mine.

I might have a different opinion than most, but I don’t think having more than three registries comes across as greedy. If I’m going to your wedding, I’m going to get you one gift. The more registries, the more options.

@hotchildinthecity: Acyually, maybe that would be a good idea. 🙂

@Earlybride: If your guest list is that large then I think it makes perfect sense 🙂

@Crabbabs: And plus my main registry has only about 20 items on it. lol At the moment I cant think of anything else we might need.
I would like to see my FI’s new apartment first before I register for certain things.

I don’t see it as greedy..But I don’t think I’d put things on there for my pet, or anything work related either. But to each’s own.

We probably won’t do registries specifically, but will just have a “wishlist” where we list the brand/item we want (ex. “Oxo Pop storage containers, assorted sizes”), and maybe list a couple stores where people can find them (ex. “available at Crate & Barrel for $X.XX each, or at Bed, Bath & Beyond for $X.XX”). We’ll put the list up on our wedding website, and include a section where people can mark off what they bought if they want.
