Fiance and I are debating about when to do registries. He feels that we should do them asap, but with the shower being in April, I am not sure if it’s too early or not.
How long before your shower did you do your registry?
Is a gift registry in January when the shower is in April too early?

We actually did our registries last October and we aren’t getting married til October 2012.. I’m keeping an eye on them because things will be going in and out of stock, but I found it was REALLY helpful for my family buying us Christmas presents! I don’t think it’s ever really too early to set them up… it took us a few weeks of going to different places and reading reviews online and changing things up, so go ahead and get a start on it!

@Legallyblondiebride: We registered at the beginning of June 2011 for our March 2012 wedding. Future Mother-In-Law was just pestering us about it ALL the time, she was insistant that all of her friends would be buying us engagement gifts.
I don’t think there is such a thing as too early, you just have to keep checking to make sure your stuff doesn’t get discontinued.

I think we started ours about 4 months out. You figure your invites will probably go out in March some time, and it took a few weeks for us (me ) to tweak it and get it right.
Just make sure when picking things they are not being clearenced out for end of season sales.
