So Overwhelmed!

Recommended Posts

Hey there! Well yesterday I started our gift registy yesterday. Adam and I stopped by Macy at the Houston Galleria. When we got there we had NO idea what to go for! We had no idea where to start, what we really needed, or anything! Luckily, Andy, a manager is the home department, saw our confused face and spent two hours explaining the different brands. He went so far as showing us the good, better, and best in every department. He told us when certain items went on sale, the lowest prices you could see for those items. He went through the departments and showed us the best items for the money spent. Just to say that Adam and I spent over 3 hours at Macys and we might have 4 items so far on our registry. We came out of there with eyes wide open! We had absolutely no idea we would be overloaded with information! We did lear A LOT during our visit at Macys and what brands would be in the practical price range for our guests. We both feel like we are already asking them to make the expense for the trip, we don't want to look like fools if we have a $600 dollar item on our registry just because we want the best Cephalon cooking pans.


I know this is terribly long, but I just wanted to share my story about our experience. If you are in the Houston area, I would recommend you stop in and visit Andy. He was so knowledgeable and so helpful, I couldn't stop talking about him to my mom last night. I was amazed that there was someone there that knew everything about anything in that entire home department!!! After that experience, I think we will probably have most of our registry there since it seems like the best bargain for our guests as well as for us if we want to purchase the rest of our items on the registry after the wedding!

I am very happy with our Macy's Registry. Not only is it the most popular, but they have a great selection.

I agree, they have everything you want whether it be at the store or online. I think we might just stick with Macys for the bulk of our registry. We were so satisfied with the selection and the service. Not to mention our guest can find great deals there or bring in their coupons.

My fiance and I were the same way when we walked into Macy's - totally lost!! I was clueless when it came to china and flatware and pots and pans. We had scheduled an appointment with a bridal consultant and she was an enormous help. We spent 4 hours total in macy's because we went through on our own first and then sat down with her to review and the registry was such a mess she deleted it all and we started over with her holding our hands haha. Now we feel really good about our selection. Can't wait to start having packages arriving at the door :)


Any brides who haven't registered yet...do your homework first! Will save you some stress!

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
