We didn’t separate our registries out — we registered for what we needed, and people can buy off of it if they wish for both the shower and the wedding. I don’t think you need to make a “shower-specific” registry.

You dont create separate registries for the shower and the wedding. whatever is left after the shower may be purchased as a wedding gift. We kept and eye on ours to make sure there were items left on it. However, 99% of guests gave us money at the wedding.

Most people will give you money at the wedding rather than a physical gift, the real purpose of the registry is for the shower. So if there’s something you want, I’d put it on the registry before the shower happens, not after.

@ZChick17:  We just registered for things that we wanted/needed and people either bought them for the shower or the wedding. I added things throughout our wedding planning as I found more things that I wanted.

Just register for what you actually want and need. If there’s something you want/need that you feel is too expensive for your shower, put it on the registry now. You never know if several people want to team up on purchasing a gift or if someone really wants to be generous. Most people give money, but there are always people that want to bring a physical gift to a wedding.

We’re using the same registry for our showers and wedding, but we’re keeping an eye on stock and which products have been purchased/potentially discontinued. If we need to add more before the wedding we will, but we’re still keeping things essentially in one pool
