That’s up to you.  If you want to register, go ahead. No one is obligated to buy anything from the registry.

I would register. People are most likely going to want to buy you things and better they have an idea of what you want than trying to guess on their own.

Yes! People will ask even it they were not invited.

I would register! I like buying couples celebratory gifts, even if I have to travel or can’t make it to the ceremony. I just bought a small gift for a couple of friends who are eloping, then holding a reception later. (I’ll give them a larger gift closer to the reception, but I wanted to send a token to mark their elopement anyway!) And I once sent a cousin’s fiancee a gift for her bridal shower, even though I wasn’t invited (because I live ten hours away) just cause I was so happy for her. Just register for things at different price points, and if someone asks – or searches for your registry on the internet – you’ll have a place to direct them.

I would still register. We are having a destination wedding and some people who cant attend still wanted to get us something so we decided to register

We are going to have a small DW (just us) and are registering.  We’ve lived together for over a year and have been buying things for our home together, but we want to put some things on a registery in case people want to gift us entering into the marriage.
