Why would a registry be password-protected?

To help guard against trolls?

Sadly I agree. I can see people thinking how fun! Click that the item has been purchased, click, click, click then the bridal couple receives nothing off of the registry.

My husband and I witnessed the "processional" of a wedding in Glacier NP. The bridal couple, officiant, maid of honor and best man were hiking back to "their spot." It was 32 degrees F and spitting freezing rain, the maid of honor had an umbrella over the bride's head and the best man looked pi$$ed. After we passed them, I looked at my DH and said, "Maybe I should tell them that they're getting married in the shadow of "Bad Marriage Mountain."  ;D

I got married almost two decades ago, but at the time, the only way to something to disappear from the (online) registry was if you actually bought it.

Must depend on the store. I got married over 20 years ago and you could mark things as purchased on my registry. Because, in spite of what the registry store would like, not every person is going to buy things there.

I know we've been able to mark things "bought" on registeries from Target. I think we were able to do that with BB&B too.

OP here ó
I think that the registry is password protected because itís connected to the wedding website.  You sort of get to the website through the registry, rather than the other way around.  Itís Zola; they do things a little differently, I think.  (Iím not a big Zola fan.)
