We had a great experience at both places; employees at both stores were willing to walk around with us and help us choose, but we both preferred to just go at it on our own and then ask questions if needed. Some of my favorite items at Dillard's were our everyday dinnerware, as well as the Kate Spade toasting flutes and cake servers.

For our dinnerware, we went with a mix of the blue and white options of Gordon Ramsay's Maze Dinnerware by Royal Doulton. We opted not to register for china because I am inheriting a beautiful set of Royal Albert Old Country Roses from my grandmother. I really like the Belle Boulevard design from the flutes and servers, and I think if we ever decide to buy our own china, I'd like to continue with that set.
At Bed, Bath, and Beyond, we found our bedding set as well as our cookware set, among many, many other things. If there was a point in the day where we got borderline exhausted/cranky, it was at BB&B - that store is just huge, and you don't really how many items they have until you're going up and down every. single. aisle. and looking at every. single. item. Not that I'm complaining :)

I've really enjoyed this feature because I can add one or two items from a store, without having to set up a registry with them, or having to deal with them not having a registry option. Who knows if anyone will use it, but the info will be on our wedding website with the other registries, so we'll see!
Anyone else's registry process fairly painless or did you have a hard time making selections? I thought we would have a hard time choosing, but I was really surprised to find that it was easy to agree on almost everything.
