    - Forgot to mention one thing about Macy's. After the wedding they will send you ads and coupons gallore encouraging you to come in, shop, and complete your registry (even if its stuff you don't want anymore)

    - Based on the other stores you're listing, I would just use Macy's to register some china so you'll have a nice set for the future, but register for everything else at the other stores you listed.

    - Regarding Cadet's suggestion, I told my wife we should tell people (as a joke) one of our wedding registries is Babies 'R' Us. She laughed, thought it was a good idea for a joke to freak people out, but in the end we opted not to freak people out.

    Depending on what is left on your registry, Macy's offers between 25-50% off to buy the items no one purchased.

    I think you have all the help you need on the registry stuff, so I'll pass along what my wife said was the greatest advice she received: Plan the honeymoon so it begins at least five days after the wedding.

    With all the shit you've got going on in the days leading up to the wedding, the last thing you want is to have to worry about having all your stuff packed up and ready to go for the day after.

    My brother and his wife didn't follow this advice. They forgot their passports, missed their flight and lost a day.

    We're going to do the honeymoon at least a week after the wedding. We want to go to New York, including Cooperstown.

    NY is a good time, but that shit's expensive.

    I highly recommend a high-end cruise. All the absolutely wonderful food you can eat, decent places to see, really great food, a lot of unexpected cool shit on the newer boats and some outstanding food. We were hesitant about doing it, wasn't sure what to expect, yada, yada, yada. Wouldn't trade that trip for anything now. In fact, we're looking at hitting another for our five-year anniversary in a couple months. Did I mention the good food?

    Honestly, we'll only spend a day or two in NYC. Cooperstown is definitely the highlight of the trip-to-be. Also, Niagara Falls.

    I think where you're losing me is the trip to Cooperstown. Just does nothing for me.

    I know that's blasphemy to some here, but it just doesn't interest me in the least. I've been and ... ah, hell, I'm not gonna rag on the place based on nothing more than my opinions when you're planning your honeymoon around it.

    Go, have a good time, all the best to you and yours.

    I'll be in the floating casino, killing time before the filet mignon and lobster dinner.

    I'll have to disagree with dog.

    I have told everyone I've ever met to make it to Cooperstown at least once in their lives.

    I don't know if five days is the right amount, but definitely don't leave the next day.

    If you're having people come in from out of town, you probably want to have a brunch or something with them the morning after the wedding. Then, it's traditional to "open the gifts brought to the wedding" with the immediate families.

    We're leaving late on Monday afternoon for our HM.

    We may come home for a couple weeks, get things settled, and then go. We could wait and go for HOF weekend at the end of July.

    All I know is the lead post in this thread should not include the Good Doc allegedly signing up for the registery. I went on one trip to the store to help and was bored out of my mind within an hour and quickly got out of the rest of it. I liked opening the gifts, but I didn't feel like spending hours on finding the exact right color of plates and linens.

    As far as cool gifts to register I would agree with the poster earlier to put things like golf balls or clubs or other sports-related items on there. Also, beer mugs and wine glasses were something the younger crowd at my wedding liked to buy us. We also upgraded a lot of our kitchen stuff, like coffee pot and pots and pans. Also, if you like to camp, you can clean up on things like tents, lanterns, backpacks and stoves.
