I assume this is a gift registry for people to buy for your wedding? You really shouldn’t start one so early… Lots of brides have found that lots of stuff gets discontinued and you’ll just have to do the work again. Don’t start it until a month or two before people will actually be buying things off it.

We registered at Target and Kohls, and both gave us checklists and booklets of typical registry stuff when we registered. It was really helpful. Obviously they might put the expensive versions of everything in the booklet but you can get an idea of what to look for. Also, if you notice you’re cooking or doing whatever around the house, and suddenly you realize you don’t have ___ and it would be really nice to have one, consider that for your registry.

Sometimes just walking through store aisles helps… my Fiance is most excited about an espresso maker we registered for, he had never thought of that before he saw it on the shelf at Target.

I’m using http://www.MyRegistry.com and I think it would be great for you as you’re planning long distance! You can register for anything from any store so if you see things around your new area or online or whatever they can all go on the same registry. And if you and Fiance aren’t together, you can both add and edit the list from where you are. Also, I’m all for starting early because it’s a really fun way to start visualizing your future life together… you just have to be prepared to update it often because things may go out of stock before your wedding. And they send you a registry checklist as well to get you thinking about all the things you need but as a general rule I just say you can register for anything that you will both use/benefit from as you start your marriage!

You can put what you things you will need after your wedding….it depend on your choice….look around your home and decide what you need….you can make categories for your gift registry…like things for kitchen…for your dining, for your rooms…bathrooms etc…and then think what you need for these categories……
i have search from http://www.thepersonalizedmall.com/ for my gift registry…have a look here and see what you like or need and ask that thing in your registry…

We had the “discontinued” issue recently happen, but the staple items won’t be that way in most cases. Our registry is through Macy’s and Amazon. On Amazon’s, there is a “universal registry” button where you can get things from any website and it adds it to your Amazon registry. I think that’s awesome. My fiance is in the military, too so I can completely relate to you! If you need any help/support feel free to reach out. 🙂 I’m in Raleigh… not too far!

@SimplySunshine:  I agree with not registering too early but it is never too early for a spreadsheet!  I made a spreadsheet with different item categories on there like small electronics, kitchen utensils, bathroom stuff, etc.  And than I put an x in the category they fit into such as Need, Want or Have.  Like we Need a toaster since neither of us have one but, Wants are things like a panini press which would be nice but don’t need it, those items I am actually waiting to put on later when the registry empties out a little.   And the Haves are items that I have that are still great and I don’t need a new one of.

I had a  lot of fun making the list, going through our stuff when I happened to be in that room.  It really streamlined the registry process too since we didn’t have to debate whether we needed something or not and we could go section by section.  Extra work?  Yes but if you have the time its fun and worth it!
