Registry help

Happy Saturday, Ladies!!  Just wondering if anyone has a story or opinion on which stores are good/bad for registering.  I've heard that Target is not good because of horrible return policies.  I've been thinking of:


1. Macy's


2. Bed Bath and Beyond


3. William Sonoma


4. Pottery Barn


5. Pampered Chef


Any suggestions?

I am registered at Macy's they have this program where anyone who purchases from your registry you get 10% on a gift card a few months after your wedding also any purchases you make you get on the gift card as well and 10% off anything you purchase from your own registry as well and the return policy is great! I was also considering Bed Bath and Beyond...Good luck!

I also had a great experience with BBB.  I am returning stuff tomorrow, so I will let you know how that goes.

I've heard great things about BBB for registries, mostly because of their awesome return policy.


We were registered at Macys, Amazon.com and Pottery Barn. We eventually dwindled our Macys registry down to just a few items when we found most the same products on Amazon for much less $$. A lot of our guests really appreciated that! Plus registering with Amazon was incredibly easy and we could register for all sorts of stuff... like kitchen appliances, cookbooks, a backyard hammock, porch lighting and a back massager. I never advertised to guests about our Pottery Barn registry, a few found it though. After we received a few gifts, I deleted it.


Pottery Barn isn't bad, they have some fantastic products and I really like their design styles. The only problem is how long their products are available. We got engaged in January and I created the registry in February. By May, I had to start over as most of the products i had chosen were no longer available. So, if a guest purchased one or two items from a set, by the time we were ready to complete the set, they were no longer in stock. It was really frustrating. Also, if we wanted to return items, we could send them back and we had to eat the shipping charges. Or we could return them in-store. But the nearest store is a 30 mintue drive. I think I would have kept up with the registry if we lived closer the a store, but it became a big pain in the butt.


Also, after our wedding, Macys and Pottery Barn both sent us coupons giving us 10% or 15% off our entire purchase for buying items from our registries. Macys actually sent us two! We totally took advantage by adding more stuff to the registry and buying them later. It was pretty sweet.


Good luck!
