Do you two have birthdays coming up?  If it was right before Christmas, I’d say leave it open, as family members will likely still shop from the registry.

Otherwise, I’d prioritize the things you want and buy almost all of it, personally.

We did not receive any gifts after the wedding, but we got gifts from most of the guests who attended either before or at the wedding.

Actually – I think my cousin ordered his gift online or in the store that weekend and it was delivered during the week the next week.  🙂

Go ahead and buy the stuff you really want – don’t count on anyone else.  Use your gift cards at least.

If it’s Bed, Bath & Beyond, you’ll always have 20% coupons so don’t feel like you *have* to buy everything that night, though it is nice to not have a coupon for every single thing and get it all done with.  The registry consultant there even told me that for the 2 years after the wedding – add everything I buy to our registry, then buy it, since the registry is like a receipt and you can return stuff easier.  I have so been doing that.
