We decided on Macy's for the location of our registry, however we were so disappointed with the variety at the Smith Haven Location. Our registry barely had 20 items. We had not had the time to make it to the 34th St location even though we lived and worked in nyc. I wish I had forced myself to register at 34th street.
Top quality service at the Minneapolis location. From day one to my final fitting they went above and beyond for me. Every person there is pleasant, professional and not pushy!! LOVED THEM!
They didn't have a great bridesmaid selection so I went elsewhere but for bridal gowns they were great, big selection in multiple price ranges and lots of accessories and veils! Alterations were fabulous and again not pushy!
I went to the Macys Wedding Event Night! It was so enjoyable. Catering and DJ Services were on site with refreshments and samples of music. The food was excellent and the music enjoyable. Plenty of associates were on hand for help with registering and making recommendations for items needed for the home. We were given portable scanners to scan items that we wanted. Clinique was also giving make-up tips for the wedding day and suggesting colors. At the end of the evening we were given a goodie bag with coupons and gift cards for restaurants and wedding day needs. Clinique also gave samples of make-up and skin care.
Register at Macy's! If you haven't already heard, they have a great rewards program for Macy's card holders (if you don't have a card you can just open one when you register). After the wedding is over, Macy's sends you a gift card for 5% of the total value of your guests' registry purchases, plus 10% of the total value of anything you purchased at Macy's during your engagement. And not just housewares--if you bought Christmas presents or a pair of stilettos for yourself, you would get 10% of that cost back on the gift card.
The Macy's on State Street also has very knowledgeable registry consultants (ask for Korrin!).
Not in Erie, but Macy's bridal salon in Chicago was just wonderful. I paid a lot of money for my dress, but it was just stunning, and everyone kept telling me how beautiful it was (haha I know everyone has to say that, but still). My consultant was very friendly and personable. I would definitely recommend them.
I registered here because I really wanted the martha stewart blue color for my kitchenaid mixer. I wasn't overly thrilled with the service. I kept getting emails (or not even getting an email sometimes) that certain products were being discontinued and were automatically taken off my list. This happened about 4 times over the course of the wedding. Very anoying - i didnt have time to just keep registering!!
I didn't like that I couldn't register for everything I wanted at Macy's, through the Macy's website. Additionally, if an item isn't on sale, the price can be a little outrageous. That being said, buying from this registry was really convenient for a lot of my guests, and Macy's is always having Home sales. I think a lot of our items were on sale almost the entire time our registry was up. I also loved how I got 20% off the completion of my registry during one of their sales, and this does not include the 10% off credit I can use one time for an online purchase, and the 10% off credit I can use one time in the store. I also got a lot of bonus items by buying my pots & pans and knives
