    @HotnHollerin:  That sounds like a pain for the guest! We didn’t have a password, and we were fine!

    I don’t think it’s necessary. I don’t think the information on a registry is very personal (like the information on a website). It also will make it more difficult for the guests to access your registry.

    It never occurred to me to hide our registry from the general public! Our desire for a toaster oven, duvet, and some dishes hardly feels like a secret. Many older guests have trouble doing things online (my email RSVP fiasco has been such a headache), so I don’t recommend making anything more difficult than it needs to be.

    I love snooping on casual friends’ registeries, so I wouldn’t deny anyone the pleasure of doing the same with mine.

    If someone is being stalked, or is a public figure I could understand protecting it.  Otherwise it’s just too much of a hassle for guests, and you never know who may wish to send a gift.

    Having a password seems like a huge pain in the ass for everyone, I don’t understand why they even offer that! What’s the point?

    I password-protected our website, but not the registries. I see no point in that.

    @luverly7:  +1. There’s a lot more personal info on our website, and I’ve been pretty private online about our wedding and details, but I didn’t even think about a password for a registry.

    I can hardly remember where my friends register, no way I’ll remember a password or not lose it.

    @HotnHollerin:  I used to work at Williams-Sonoma and when I was trained to do registries we were told its for celebrities–like when Jessica Simpson gets married, people actually would look at her registry. Normal people, not so much.

    It never occurred to me that it would need one on a registry.  We left ours open and it worked out fine. 🙂 However, we did password protect the sections on our website that held the wedding address, time, date, etc and the guestbook area.  We had a creeper on the guest book so that had to get password protected.  People are weird!

    Why would you want only guests to access it? What about friends of the family or more distant relatives who aren’t invited to the wedding but want to give a gift?

    Lol, I’m not saying it’s right but I would totally pause and momentarily make fun of someone if they had a password protected registry. Something along the lines of “Oh, you must be fancy if you have to make sure only US CHOSEN ONES have the HONOUR of buying you a gift.”
