Are you creating a website?  You could include the registry information on the website, and maybe send an email to everyone (including your boss), telling them to check out your website for more information regarding your wedding.  Since it would be a group email, you could include him as a courtesy, even though you know he won’t be able to attend.  You could BCC all the recipients in the email, so you could send it to him alone or everyone–know one would know who all received it (just word it like you’re sending it to lots of people).  Does that make sense?

Or, on Monday, you could say: Hey boss, how was your weekend? [He gives his answer and asks about yours]  Mine?  It was good, we finally got around to creating our registry, it was a lot of fun (or overwhelming, or a relief to have it done, or whatever), and the experience reminded me how much I love [Williams Sonoma, Crate and Barrel, Macy’s, whatever].  That way he knows (a) you’ve created a registry and (b) where it’s at.

Good luck!

did you respond at all to his intial email — stating you hadn’t registered yet?   Maybe that could be your "in" — i.e. you could reply again to let him know you did make one.

 You could also just let it go though.  I doubt he would be offended.

Did you "invite" him meaning you sent him a save the date? I can’t imagine you wouldn’t have registered at the time you’d already sent your wedding invites. If that is the case, I would still invite him even though you know he can’t come, and if he asks you again, this time you can tell him. Otherwise I would let it go- if he really wants to know, he’ll ask again. Or, if he really wants to give you guys something, he’ll mail a card/check.
