    Hey girls! My fiance and I just registered at Macy's last weekend BUT we want to register at one more place- we want Lowes or HomeDepot because we recently bought a bank owned home, therefore, we would love gift cards, etc to fix up our home....we do not need dishes, etc, because we have lived together now for a year so we have everything! YAY! (BY THE WAY- FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DO NOT LIVE TOGETHER -THE FIRST 2 MONTHS WERE ROUGH FOR US- ADJUSTMENT FOR ME WAS HARD! NOW- JUST WONDERFUL!) As I was saying, have any of u registestered at Lowe's/Home Depot? If so let me know how you did it? To me It seems unaccesable? My Mom wamts me to include cards in our invites that say "Hom depot or Lowes" giftcards with our Macy's card but I think thats kind of tacky. Fill me in ladies!?

    Oh but I LOVE me some DIY!!

    First of all, please, I beg you, don't include registry stuff in your invites!!!! It is a HUGE faux pas. It's fine to put it on your website (with the disclaimer of "your presence is all we could ask for"), but not in your invites.

    As far as how to "register", both actually have a registry:

    For home depot, just go to (or open) your account, and there's an option for registry.

    I don't know how you do it for Lowe's, but I've bought items there from a registry, so you should be able to find it.

    good luck!

    Happily married since 2008

      The registry info should really be a word-of-mouth thing... I would never put that info in the invitation. As for Lowes or HD... I've bought gifts from a registry at Home Depot before, but I haven't from Lowes, and I'm not sure how to start one at either place... but I like the idea. Especially if you want to focus on fixing up the house the way you want it, but you don't really need other household items.

      22 booked... we're ready to go!!!

        Def don't put that in your invitation. I think that would come across rude. Doesn't the stores have any ideas on how to do something like that? Word of mouth is the best way

          Home Depot and Lowe's no longer allow registries. Trust me, I tried this week, going so far as to call their corporate headquarters. I registered on Amazon instead, which allows me to register for the same DIY stuff.
