Is it okay to have a small registry for the shower and then take it down before the wedding? We’d really prefer people contribute to our honeymoon registry, but my aunt generously offered to host a shower, and there are a few housewares that I thought would be nice to have, upgrades mostly. And what price tags would you shoot for on a shower only registry? Right now I’m worried mine are a little high in the $30-100 range.

I’d leave it up. There are bound to be some people that would prefer to give a gift. I know I always try to buy a gift rather than giving money. It means more to me.

I think as long as you limit the number of items on the registry, I would try to leave it up for the wedding as well. I think as a guest to the shower, I would be surprised if I could no longer find the registry when the wedding rolled around.
I think the $30-$100 range might be a bit high for the shower. If I know I am attending both the shower and the wedding, I usually try to stay more in the $20-$30 range for the shower.

Yeah, I think I’ll probably take a lot of things off the registry after the shower but leave them up. My fiance isn’t really happy that I made one at all because he hates the idea of bringing more stuff into the house and he wants to make sure the honeymoon gets paid for. I totally get that, but it sure has been fun to finally get to do a little browsing though! I think I’m gonna swing over to Target tonight and see if I can’t find some stuff thats a little cheaper in the stores than online. That might be part of my problem. I mean seriously, I was thinking sheets, towels, pillows, and a new mattress pad would be cheap, but the ones I like are all over $35. Craziness!

I think the 30-100 dollar range is fine. Some people will go in together and buy one large gift. Some people will be you just one gift and nothing later. So just make sure you have a few items in each price range and you’ll be fine. I agree that you should just leave up the registry for the shower and wedding.
