I’d leave it up.  Just because in your area it is common to give money at weddings doesn’t mean that everyone will do so.  Some people like to bring physical gifts, and wouldn’t you rather get the few leftover registry gifts than an off-registry ceramic rooster?

I always heard to wait until a month after the wedding to discontinue a registry. People who sent regrets aren’t in a hurry to get a gift for you before the wedding, and still need a guide of what you like.

Depending on your gift giving habits in your families, you may want to consider keeping it.  My sister kept hers up for as long as they allowed and added things to it to give us all more gift ideas for holidays and birthdays when gifts are also appropriate.  Let me tell you it was a BIG HELP to me and my family for that first holiday when they were married.  We didnt’ end up buying something we didn’t know they had already received from someone else or off of another registry.

One more reason to consider leaving it is for those out of town.  Sister’s husband was from four states away, and many of his relatives purchased off registries and had the gift shippped to them.

Jut things to consider.  I been married for so long at this point I don’t remember what I did.  I think we just kept them until the store dumped them! 🙂
