@gaucho25: I haven’t registered yet, so I don’t have good advice. 

Do you not want the guests to know the city? From what I can remember, it just says the city on most registries – not the actual location. 

Also, I wonder if there is an option to only have the month of the wedding, not the actual day. 

I would hesitate putting a password on it, because you never know who might want to get you a gift. I completely understand trying to keep the info private, but if someone wants to find out your date, I’m sure they have ways to (as unfortunate as that sounds).

I’m pretty sure that you’ll have to put the date. What I would do is not have your registry published online (Bbb gives this option). That way if someone wants to find out more they actually have to go into the store.

I dont think you have to put your exact location on a registry.. just put the state! If you really want to, you could password protect your wedding website and put the registry info on there

I’d say get a wedding website which has a password and then refer your guests there for the registry info.

@gaucho25: Gwen you register in store, BBB will make you sign a paper/ check a yes or no box, giving them permission to publish the registry online. Just say no.

Also I would recommend if you have a wedding website that you should get a password protection site. That way they won be able to get on too.

Also maybe hire a DOC that could deal with uninvited guests on the day of the wedding. Then you won’t have to keep worrying about this!

You could also list your hometown or your current location instead of the wedding location.

As for the date, I think it’s usually required because of the registry completetion benefits, they tend to expire so many months or a year after the wedding.  You could always lie about the date and put it past your wedding date.  Especially if you don’t have common names, sometimes if your names are common it does help guests narrow down the list that pops up.

Every store has their own way of publishing the registry, check out the stores you’re interested in and ask.

Finally, there’s what celebreties do sometimes – use fake names.  This would make it a little more difficult for your guests though.

My registry is at myregistry.com and it is password protected.  I’m not sure if it has the date though.  I have not been on there too much yet.  I’ll check tonight and let you know.  Also, guests and give money on the site too through paypal I think.

Mine is on BBB and I think it has my date and then the state I live in, not the city, which would provide a bit more anonymity, not sure if this helps though!

@gaucho25:  BBB is really great and they pretty much carry everything that Macy’s has… but cheaper.  Our china at BBB is like 40 dollars cheaper than it is at other stores. 

And definitely tell your DOC about the whole situation.  All you’ll need to do is provide her with an explicit guest list – just make one up in excel.  She’ll take care of any crashers.  And also, it would be easier to keep out uninviteds if you have assigned seating.  That way they just won’t have a seat… makes it more embarrassing for them, and easier to deal with for your DOC.
