First of all i am asking on our wedding registry we did bed bath and beyond. we registed for a lot of bedding stuff and most of it you cant get anymore and they are coming out with new stuff, same thing with cooking utensils. what would you do? would you update or leave it the way it is,

    Are you already married? What do you still need the registry for?

    I don't see the point in it once your married. I think after a certain age your parents buy you gifts for birthday but I don't think I'd need a registry for that. I plan on deleting mine after the wedding.

    Um, I don't know that people would look at your wedding registry for other gifts. If you are buying a home, BB&B had housewarming registries you can share.

    I would never think to look at someone's wedding registry after the fact for birthday/holiday gift ideas. Before the wedding, definitely, not after though. We got married in April last year and we still got gifts after the fact but those were mostly gift cards or things off-registry.

    I would probably just delete it. You can always set up an Amazon wish list using the Universal button and add things from BBB or wherever, if your family does things that way.

    Yeah unless you tell me you have a registry I wouldn't think to look at your registry. Make a wish list if you really want, maybe let you mom know about it or DH.

    Really no need to update it after your married. If you have the available income see how long after your wedding date BB&B will let you purchase teh final items on your registry for the discount. I remember they told be so much time after the wedding you can get everything not purchased for so much % off. Other than that, no need.

    You could always just do a wishlist on Amazon or most company's site. And then if someone (family or friend) asks what you would like for an occasion, then you can point them to that list. FH and I have individual lists we do for that bdays and holidays.

    Re: the completion discount - I'd skip it and see how many of those 20% off coupons you can hoard!

    If it's a bunch of little things and your completion discount is technically expired, you can always ask if they'll still honor it anyway. C&B still gives us 10% off pretty much everything nearly a year later.
