Registries, part deux, or A Call for Help

So we went to Macy's the day we bought our rings. And we found that they didn't have a whole lot of things that BB&B didn't. So we're thinking maybe not Macy's. But where, oh where, will our second registry be?

We're really looking for input here, so comment till your fingers turn numb. Please! Did you find a store that had a great (and different) selection? Preferably a national chain, but that won't be the deciding factor.

Where did you register? Where do you think we should (besides Bed Bath and Beyond)?

Guest books

The guest books, which I'm making, are coming right along. I realized last night that to do much else, I'll need yellow ribbon, so I'll get that soon. I'll post a few pictures when they're done. I adapted an idea I found in a wedding craft book that I sat down with in the middle of Michaels one day. There will be a guest book per table instead of one book for everyone.


I totally forgot to post when we bought the wedding rings, which was April 28. They're great, but I won't post pictures quite yet... Seeing them is part of the fun of the wedding, no? We got them at Hannoush Jewelers in the Natick Mall. We believe in helping out the stores that are sticking around through the huge construction project they're doing there. Most of the old stores in the original mall are closed or having great sales to keep what few people there are trolling the malls these days to get into their stores. "They" keep promising the new Natick Collection (what they're calling the new mall after just "Natick" bumped into loads of issues with the actual town) will open in Sept. 2007.

Anyway, the rings are purchased and they'll get resized in July and engraved in August.
