There are lots of different thoughts on when to register, but if you register now you will more than likely get some gifts that you register for as well as things not listed.

When we had out engagement party in leu of gifts we asked our friends and family to bring some of their favorite recipes.  Some people still brought us small gifts but now it made a really nice cook book for us to share.  Just an idea. 

Good luck!

i didn’t register for anything for my engagement party because i wasn’t expecting gifts at all… or thinking people would get us stuff from our registery.

about 1/4th of the gave me gifts anyways… i got mostly money and macy gift cards… then i got some picture frames and towels and some random wiskey glasses….

it was a nice surprise.  ^_^

if you don’t care than that’s okay, you could probably return whatever random things people give you if they happen to get something for you.

Register for at least some things before the engagement parties.  Some people will want to bring gifts, and some of those people would prefer to shop from a registry, and it makes it more likely you’ll get something you want.  You by no means have to register for EVERYTHING.  Pick 10-20 items in a range of prices for now.
