I wouldn’t worry about it.  We were/are in a similar situation and we made a tiny registry, about 15 items maybe?  It is silly to put things on there just in case – if people want to buy you a gift, they will come up with something 🙂  I personally would prefer no gifts, so I definitely was not going to put anything on the registry just to add numbers.

I was wondering the same thing – the registry gifts are going fast and I was wondering if there’s a point I should add more things.

I will add though that once I start REALLY looking, I realized there were more things I could use than I orginally thought, like a bigger dutch oven, some nice cookware, some really nice and specialized knives, matching bathrobes, new towels, etc. Some places like Amazon let you look at similar couples’ registries so you can get some ideas there.

daisy351:  I’m debating that myself right now, but figured that I’ll just leave it as is, and if people want to give cash/gift cards instead – that works for us!

My daughter was in the same situation. About 75% of her registry was taken care of, with shower gifts. And most of the rest in the months preceding the wedding. She got all envelopes, at her wedding itself. She used the Bed/Bath gift cards she received to complete almost everything, on the registry, but has some credit left, as needs pop up. She removed the registry a few weeks after the wedding, as all that was left was large serving/casserole pieces, to match her china, and she doesn’t really have room to store them, anyway.
