@Firemansgirl:  I signed up for a registry… added like 3 items… but haven’t told anyone about it.

We’ve been living together (in apartments) for 8 years, so… we don’t need anything. :/ We’re going to do an FHA registry to help save for a down deposit on a home, but I’d like to set up a secondary registry with a few little things just to have variety… but it’s difficult!

Well I’m getting married in June and haven’t done this yet! I’ve thought about it, but I don’t see why this isn’t something that can’t wait until closer to our date. We’ve lived together about 6 yrs. now and really don’t need a whole lot, so whatever we do put on there will probably be just to replace our old stuff now! lol But I’m not too worried about, it’s actually the least of my worries right now! I wouldn’t stress over it too much, just do it when ever you have available time! I would like to know when the proper time is to do it, if there is one? I think your fine, good luck!!!

We did between Xmas and New Years, but it’s only for replacement stuff.  We’ve been living together for a while in a shoebox-size condo, so we’re just putting the info on our website.

Its a lot of fun to go and do! Your FI’s will LOVE it!!! Just let them use the gun and you will have a great day together! When we signed up the woman explained to us “this is the one time in your life to make an ultimate wish list so why not?” And she was completely right. We also have lived together for almost 5 yrs BUT still were able to come up with a bunch of great gift ideas.

I’m getting married at the end of July and we probably wont register for another month. I think your on track. Just make sure you are registered before your bridal invites go out that way ppl can buy you cool new things! :)

I am working on mine but I won’t make it public for at least a few more months. I wouldn’t stress about it

Nope we haven’t and I am not too worried about it I figure as long as we register a month or so before the bridal shower we should be ok…

I have registered and only added a few things, we’ve also been living together for a few years so we’re pretty set up.

Ours is mostly set up, but we haven’t really given out the information yet.  Which is a good thing since now that we’ve actually got a house we’ve changed our minds on some stuff…

We haven’t registered yet either! I believe my shower is going to be in June, so I figured we would do it in April! We have lived together for 4 years too, but most the stuff has been handed down! So, we are excited to go!

I haven’t!  I’m worried about doing it and then some of the stuff will get sold out or whatever.  I figured I’d wait until April or May… do people really buy gifts more ahead-of-time than that?  (Note, probably won’t have a bridal shower or any other gift-giving occasion ahead of time also.)

I only registered just recently. I did it 100% online, because FI and I have more important things to do on days we both have off and I don’t want to go by myself. It was actually very easy and I had a lot of fun doing it. Plus, you can always build it up over time.
