You’re overthinking it. He wants to give you a gift, otherwise he wouldn’t bother asking where you’re registered.

I don’t think you need to mention anything about when you’re sending the invitations. Something like:

You’re so sweet! I really hope you can make it to the wedding. If not, we really need to make plans to meet up!

We’re registered at xy, xx.

(If you haven’t spoken/caught up in a while, add some question about how he is…)

Basically, respond with an answer and add whatever you’d normally write to him in an email. Easy!

I usually responded to those kinds of requests with something like, “since you asked, we are registered at …”

I thought about saying that… to look nice. But then I was like, no I’m not saying that. As much as we don’t think people HAVE to give us gifts, we don’t want to tell people not to give us gifts. We really do need things for our new apartment! So unless you really mean it, I wouldn’t say anything. It sounds like he really wants to get you something, so I would just go along with it.
