If I REALLY wanted the dishes and cookware, I would take off the little stuff people are more likely to buy and let them purchase gift cards if they think the china is too expensive or whatever.

For sure keep the items that you really want.  You can delete some of the items you don’t really care about; just remember to leave some of the less expensive items for those who can’t afford to get you guys a set of your china 🙂

I personally tend to buy something “useful” for the shower (panini press, blender, towels, sheets), and then give something a little fancier (dishes, wine glasses, vase, candle sticks, etc) at the actual wedding. So don’t give up hope, you may still get those things for the wedding even if you don’t get them for the shower.

Keep in mind people may have bought what you still see on your registry from a different store. People also forgot to give the registry paper when checking out. I went to a bridal shower the other day and she was expecting to get almost nothing from her registry but it turned out great!

 

If you think thats not the case for you then I would recommend removing things you scanned that you think wont be as useful or you scanned out of impulse.

I think you could take off some items if you’d like but I wouldn’t leave ONLY fine china, etc…just narrow the choices down but still keep varying price ranges, etc.

Two weeks is still a long time too.  A lot of people won’t purchase things until just a few days before the shower.  I wouldn’t worry too much about it right now.  You can always return some of the little things you receive to put the money towards the dishes and more important items later.  I think people may think something fishy is going on if you start deleting items now.

I would probably just leave it as it currently is, then re-evaluate the situation after the shower.  If you got lots of things you aren’t as excited about, you could exchange it for things you really wanted but didn’t get?  I mean, if you don’t want something anymore, definitely take it off.  But two weeks is a lot of time before a shower, and you might be surprised by how much you get
