Hudson Bay - worst registry ever??

Jackie, on March 23, 2023 at 13:24 Posted in Plan a wedding 0 18
I had to give up. The website is SO bad I couldn’t even get to the page that would allow me to actually create my registry. Everything I clicked on redirected me to a search engine so I could locate other couple’s registries.


Any advice on a more user friendly wedding registry? I have absolutely no intention of using the Bay after my own experience and reading reviews of others having the same problems.

    I had the same experience as you!! But yes definitely go with MyRegistry, so far I’ve had a really easy time using it both on computer and phone. Haven’t tried in store but I’d be curious to know how that goes for you!

    I have found planning a wedding to be low stress so far, until trying to do our registry. I could have walked through Walmart and built a list faster than online. Lol. It sounds like brides here have had luck with the myregistry App. I plan on trying to use the app in the store tomorrow, hope it works better. My apologies on the rant, as shopping is usually no problem.

    The bay has now moved their registry to myregistry.com and honestly it’s been amazing. You install this button and when you find a product you like you click the button and it automatically gets out on your registry.

    I signed up for MyRegistry for my Canadian guests and I believe it is very legitimate. It gets lots of reviews etc., so you can do a little googling to be sure.

    I had the exact same experience! Every time I tried to make my own registry it directed me to other people’s. I ended up using “my registry” and selecting items from The Bay to add. “‘My registry” is nice also cause you add items from a variety of different stores.

    Hi Jackie, sorry to hear you had such a poor experience. Honestly, I love The Bay to walk through the store physically but the one time I ordered online, it took f o r e v e r to arrive and what I ordered looked like it had been returned and messily put back in the packaging (it was a duvet) so, never again. I also find their website odd and something about it does not feel legit when I'm ready to order so I can only imagine their registry.

    I have not used personally myself, but I have used for other couples registries off of Bed Bath & Beyond (but I think out of business now?) and William Ashley, and both worked great and did not hear any negative feedback on it from couple.

    Good luck! Smiley heart
