How long did it take you to register?

Recommended Posts

FI and I are taking all day Friday to do our registries. We're going to Bed Bath & Beyond (in Chelsea) and Macy's (Herald Square). Both stores are HUGE. How long should we plan on being at each place? I want to make appointments so someone will be availabe for us, but I'm not sure how far apart to space them. TIA.

We did Bed, Bath and Beyond in about an hour and Target in about an hour..but we had gone online and done some registring that way too - which seemed to work well. Good luck and have fun.

The longest it took me was 3 hours, but that was mostly because I couldn't make a decision on the bathroom and bedding stuff. FI met me and helped me narrow it down. The other 2 stores took less than an hour.

It took us about 2 hours at Bed Bath and Beyond, but I would say that is the longest it will take. It is much easier to go through there pretty quickly and then change/add/delete things online!

I would allow plenty of time between appointments because the last thing you want is to feel rushed at your first place... And if you have time left over, you could always just grab lunch or something to kill time before your 2nd appt.

Not to scare you but we were in Macy's for 4 hours! I know its crazy. We had an appointment with a consultant who was super helpful because we were totally clueless. My advice is have a game plan...do some research online and have an idea of what you want to accomplish. We went into it completely unprepared. We registered at Crate and Barrel on our next trip and it was much easier only about an hour. Remember you can always add and remove items online.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
