Wedding Registry

Austin and I set up our wedding registry this weekend at Bed Bath and Beyond, but we're already thinking about changing it.  After looking around Target's website, it looks like they have a wider range of options, and they're more affordable too!

We registered for the "expected" things like plates, bowls, bath towels, sheets, a stand mixer, blender, coffee pot, tablecloths, bakeware, and we even went for a few "unconventional" items - like a massage cushion!  And when we set up at Target, Austin wants to sign up for a Wii.

We thought about signing up for home bar furniture, curtains, and closet organization devices - but all of those things are best purchased when you know the arrangement of your house.  Since our lease ends in March, we're unsure where we'll be living after we're married.

Registering was a lot of fun, but it took a lot longer than I expected!  Now we just need to decide if we're going to delete our registry at Bed Bath & Beyond, or just have two registries - one at Target and one at Bed Bath and Beyond...

What's your favorite department store?


  1. When my husband and I got married we had two registries (BBB and Amazon). There's no reason to NOT have two, since they're sort of specialized. Amazon was great because they also have the "universal registry" option, so if you find something you like at a different, smaller store and you don't want to make yet ANOTHER registry there, you can just add it to your Amazon registry ;) Registries took forever though, I agree.

  2. Use !! We are doing it and it make SO much more sense. People can buy the thing for the lowest price AND see all your items on one page regardless of store. We are doing that for folks who want to give us stuff and a honeymoon registry for cash. We might use Deposit A Gift but I dunno.

  3. I have heard it's good to have two registry's. I would just register at target too - give the people options. :)
