Wedding Date: July 27, 2013
Invitations go out: late May
Shower: late May/early June
So, we weren’t going to register at a store for anything because we thought we really didn’t need anything like those silly bed linens and shams and what not. Turns out, that’s not true! We DO need them lol. So anyway, when do I put together to registry? Just around the time invitations go out? Or if it’s easier to count backwards, how many weeks prior to the wedding?
I have an etiquitte book at home, but you bees are quicker on the response than me waiting to get off work and drive home. Thanks!

@JoolyBee: If you are getting married in July which is a week before my wedding (aug 3), you should set up the registry now before the shower. Amazon is a great site and their returns are easy or bed bath and beyond (overpriced but returns are easy).

@JoolyBee: I registered 1 week before my shower invitations went out (which my sister mailed 2 weeks before the shower…so 3 weeks before the shower I guess is when we registered. Allows less time for items to become discontinued.

I would say anytime between now and when the invites go out. Invites being your wedding invites or shower invites, whichever go out first. I would probably be done with it by 2 weeks to a month before the shower. If I were you I would want it done by sometime in April. You can do it now though. Just check back in during April and update if something is no longer available. I’m already registered (I did it all online)
