I wouldn’t set it up too early.  Stuff can get discontinued.  We finished ours up a month or so before my bridal shower.  I also added some stuff after the shower.  If you are having an engagment party I might have some stuff on a registry for that as well.

We did ours pretty early. Things can get discontinued regardless of how long they’ve been on your registry. Both of mine notify me if something is getting discontinued.

I’d recommend monitoring it, though.

We set ours up about 9 months prior. It was a little early, but we had people who wanted to buy us gifts right away. We got engaged in may 2011 and married in June 2012- set the registry up in October.

We did ours about 5 months out. I’m glad we had it up before Christmas because some family sent us Christmas gifts from our registry, which was absolutely lovely. My dad, for example, got us out toasting flutes, which you need before the wedding after all, so that was awesome. If you chosoe to register at Target (which I wouldn’t do, personally), do it later rather than earlier because their stock changes a lot and you don’t want to be stuck with half of sets that cannot be completed and then have difficulty returning them because Target’s return policies are awful.

We did ours pretty early too and I kind of wish I had waited a bit.  I’m constantly having to update as things are discontinued and I’ve changed it so many times I’ve lost count.  But really you can do it whenever you want.

We did ours about six months before the wedding. We started getting some gifts right away though.

We ended up starting ours four months out and didn’t really look at it again until our showers (which were one and half to one month before the wedding date).  Even with four months out I found a few things were discontinued by the time it got to the shower day.

We set ours up about a month after we got engaged. We aren’t getting married until June of next year, but we already have about 1/3 to 1/2 of the gifts off of our regestry from our engagement party. I’ve had a few things that have been discontinued already, but none of them are parts of sets, so I just replaced them with similar items. It’s fun! It gives me something wedding related to do/work on since the wedding is just about fully planned at this point.
