The Girl with 5 Registries - Part 2

How does a girl who didn’t even really want a registry end up with 5? You read about the first two…here’s the story of the final (?) three.


Registry #3

Bed! Bath! and Beyond!

This one is a keeper. I think I started this after I realized how expensive the Blooms registry was going to be. Plus the Triple B has just about everything Bloomie’s has at much better prices. The online selection seems to be more extensive as well. Granted, I don’t really have space to put any of these things and some of the items are no longer available. Le sigh.

The interface isn’t all that pretty but they do offer tons of coupons, specials, free gifts and a nice completion program.  

Registry #4

I have a fondness for the C&B. I like their stuff and then there’s this whole contest thing. I’m a sucker for contests. I ended up not entering the contest though.  I read the fine print and I had to give up too much control over wedding details if I won.
No thanks bub!

This one is probably a keeper as well. Everything comes in pretty teals and purples, oranges and reds.  As an additional bonus I love the Marimekko bedding (ummm… it’s Finnish! I adore the Finns! Perfection on a stick!)

The interface is clean and simple. It’s pretty easy to use. They also have those registry parties which I really want to attend.


Initially I wanted only brick and mortar establishments but Amazon has EVERYTHING. Ummm….sign me up! I figured Mr. H might be more interested in this one since it has more options for things he might want/like/need. Yeah… so far this is what’s on this one:

Nonsense! It’s just too many choices and I don’t even know where to start. Amazon also has that universal registry button which could come in handy. What’s more perfect than a “register anywhere and everywhere for anything and everything” button for a girl with 5 registries?  Oh dear!

Anybody go overboard with their registries?


  1. We registered at Bed, Bath & Beyond this past Wednesday.. I loved their selection of stuff. It's the first place we registered and I remember when they "let us loose" to go out in the store on our own with the scan gun, I remember standing there at the HUGE wall of kitchen gadgets feeling so overwhelmed. But, I pulled it together and my fiance and I took turns with the scan gun. We still plan on registering at Crate & Barrel (LOVE their stuff and I really want to attend a registry event with them) and Target, as well.

  2. BBB is a MUST for registries in my book. It will be number one for us.

    Also.. didn't realize Amazon had a registry?! That's amazing!!
