What is the difference between a public and private registry?
A public registry is one that can be viewed and searched on West Coast Kids website.
A private registry can only be accessed by guests that have been given the direct registry link, or by being provided the registry password from the registry owner.
What if I have started a registry but don’t want people to view it yet?
If you are not ready to share your registry yet you can hold off on sharing it until you are set to go. You can also keep a registry as ‘private’ until you are ready to share it.
To change a registry from Private to Public (or vice versa), log in to your account, select EDIT and change
What if I don’t know my baby shower event date yet?
An event date can also be your due date. The date entered ideally would be prior to when you would want to have all items for your baby purchased. You can always change this date once you know when your shower will be (please note the date cannot be changed once it has passed)
