When should a bride register? You should consider timing. After you announce your engagement, it is acceptable to start your registry soon after. Your friends and family will want to get you gift for an engagement party and or shower. Also, remember to register for a variety of price points, some of your friends, or co-workers may want to join together for a big ticket item. If you have created a wedding website, this is a great place to note where you are registered.
Another tip to consider when you register is ease for you and your guest. When you have your registry available to you on-line, in-store or by phone you are able to manage, edit, add, delete at your convenience. Also, lets your guest shop at their leisure.
