Text field: Your friends can purchase more than the "desired quantity".(ie: Desired quantity = 10; buyers can purchase more than 10 units of that product)

After the event info is updated, there will be an overview summary on top of the page for registry's owner to track.

Or they can search the gift registry by name/email on the page. The search results includes the registrant and co-registrant (if available) name and contact.
Click on View, they can see the event information and the gift registry's item list.
Customers can use the filter to sort the gift list by desired quantity, priority or price.
For the drop-down list, when the quantity is out, the Add to cart button will be disabled so that customer cannot purchase that product for the gift registry anymore. 
On cart page, visitors have 2 other options than just checkout.

Change gifts to regular purchase: The product(s) will be purchased for the visitors themselves, not for the registry.
