I have been following check lists to make sure I am not forgetting anything. My check list says to go register in July, this seems really early to me. Our wedding isn’t until the end of April.
How many months before your wedding did you register? Also, do you some advice (from experience)?

Yikes, that does seem rather early IMO. Most places don’t keep that consistent of stock for that long either…

That does seem a little early if you ask me. I would just make sure that I have it up maybe 2-3 months before the wedding.

We registered in late Dec/early Jan for our July wedding which we thought was a little early but we were long distance at the time so there were only so many opportunities so we figured “whatever, so no one will need it for multiple months but at least we’ll be done”.
Wrong! It completely backfired on us. We had a ton of things discontinued (especially at BB&B) so that right before we sent out the invitations, we had to spend all day a second time going and re-doing large portions of our registry so that items were actually available for people to purchase.
I’d say register sometime in the month before all of your invitations go out (unless your shower is before your wedding invites go out – then do it shortly before shower invites go out). That way you still have some time to tinker with it but you minimize your chances of the things you choose being discontinued.

Thanks for your comments. It seemed way too early.
I use to work at BB&B (only at customer service) I often would see registries with a LOT of discounted items. We also had a couple register two years before their wedding LOL, talk about early!

Well, we had an engagement party a month ago, and where I’m from, people do like to buy gifts off the registry for that. We’re still working on finishing up our registry right now, but 2 months ago, FH and I registered for our formal and everyday china, along with a few kitchen items and a frame. We were worried about things being discontinued too, but we were assured that both our dinnerware patterns weren’t going ANYWHERE. The kitchen stuff was really basic (a blender, a mixer, a coffee grinder, some utensils, a garlic press, a citrus juicer) and easy to replace if it does get dropped by the store.

Yeah, it’s pretty early. We registered in April for our January wedding, and that was definitely soon (we’re already having stuff go out of stock) but we’re just making sure to stay on top of our registry and make sure we don’t have discontinued stuff on there.
