Hmm what would be the point of deleting it right now (just curious)? Why not just wait until after the wedding just in case? There are some people who still might want to give a physical gift for the wedding rather than cash.

I wouldn’t delete it. You can always add new items to it for people to purchase as wedding gifts. Some people want to give an actual gift to the bride and groom and not an envelope of cash or a check.

I’d leave it up, and maybe consider adding to it just in case people don’t want to give cash.  While cash is more likely at a wedding, it’s nice to at least extend the option of a physical gift.

I wouldn’t delete it, either. If the registry fills up, people will bring cash or gift cards instead.

I’d leave it, you’re right in NY pretty much everyone brings cash and keeping the registry up is not going to change their minds. People bring what they want to bring and you might have some guests that want to buy a physical gift so you’re just risking people buying things you don’t need

I don’t see the harm in leaving it up. Plus, a lot of places give you a discount on the remaining items after your wedding date has passed. Leave it up, then if you want to get the pie plate after the wedding, you should be able to get it cheaper.

Leave it up. Taking it down now serves no real purpose that I can think of. People may still use it, or may just look at it to see what kinds of things you’ve laready gotten. And completion discounts. So I really see only pros to keeping it up and no real cons.

@JenGirl:  Good call about the completion discounts- we may go furniture shopping at Crate & Barrel after the wedding.

Definitely keep it up.  Just add more things to it.  It would be weird to delete it now.

We deleted our registry about 2 weeks or so after the shower. We only had some things left on it as well.

I would wait until after the shower to delete it though. A lot of people are last minute shoppers, and some people hang onto those registry sheets and give them to others. It could make it confusing if you delete it right before the shower.

I wouldn’t delete it until after the wedding – having it open makes life a lot easier if you happen to get duplicates and need to return something.

I agree, leave it up just in case, you can choose either to add things that you didn’t think of or just leave it and expect cash, it is totally up to you but I would at least leave it for a week or so after the shower.
