So Fiance and I are have basically planned our entire wedding already.
- We are getting married September 9, 2011.
- We are putting our deposits down this month for our venue, caterer, and DJ.
- I have sent out my “Will You Be My BM” invitations (Did it this weekend!! Will post later!!)
- I’ve talked with my Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man T (co-MOH for all intensive purposes) regarding the Bridal Shower and the Bachelorette Party.
When should I register? We aren’t getting married for another year. There are still all of these “gift giving” holidays (Christmas, birthdays, etc) inbetween. Should I register early in case my close family wants to get us stuff from the registry (something I seriously know my mother would do). How soon is too soon?

You should probably wait until you’re 5-6 months out at the earliest–redoing a registry when things get discontinued would suck. At the very least, have it done before your first shower.

Our date is 9/24/11 and we registered over the weekend. I think now would be a good time, especially with the holidays coming up. I have heard that people will gift holiday gifts of your registry if they know about it. I feel great because 1) its so fun to do and 2) its another item checked off the list. You can always add things or delete things as it gets closer to the date, but I think it’s definitely a good time for you to get started. 🙂

Personally for us we registered the typically (by the knot and weddingwire check list) like 9 months prior to the day. However, because we didn’t have a true e-party no one started looking at our lists until recently when our showers started.
Like his mom wanted to get “us” something for Christmas and we just told her stuff we’d like as opposed to registering and having a lot of things fall off the list because stores stop carrying things over time.
So it really depends on what type of parties you’ll having going on in the near future.

I’m probably going to wait until around 5 months before the wedding to register. But we’re already starting to contimplate what we will ask for. That way I can add a few of the items to my Christmas list for my parents/grandparents, if I want.

We registered in June, our wedding is in 3 weeks (Oct). Our shower was Aug 29th, if I knew what I know today, I would have waited to register until right before our shower invitations went out. We had so many things on our registry become not available and it was kind of a pain.

Ack! Maybe we should just wait and if the parents/grandparents ask- then we will have a pre-prepared list of things we would like sooner rather than later (like an ironing board so Fiance stops ironing his work shirts on my bath towel on the bathroom counter, UGH)
