Yeah!!  We’ve had 4 things bought… but one is something I just bought myself off of our registry because we needed it right away LoL.  One item an ex-coworker who is not invited to the wedding purchased as well…  I’m touched that she bought something but also feel a little awkward because she wasn’t invited and we don’t work together or see each other as often anymore!!

I agree it seems weird but people didn’t start buying gifts for the shower until right before. i had mine in April so we have a bunch purchased already but nothing from the wedding yet. Guests are just slow.

We’ve had 17 things purchased, but one of those I bought (a door mat that I really loved and didn’t want to miss out on), a bunch were Christmas gifts, and then a few FMIL and one of her sisters bought us for a small shower that we had a few weeks ago. One of my showers isn’t until July or early August and I’m not sure if my MOH has chosen a date for hers (or if she’s for sure doing one; I told her only to do it if she really wanted to), so I’m not really expecting things to be purchased.

I’ve had a couple things purchased, and another gift that’s not on our registry showed up yesterday.  (But it’s cool! A cooler / picnic basket in a backpack – useful cause we’re super outdoorsy.)

However, I’m not having a shower, so I’m sure people are waiting til closer to the date.

Nada, shower 1.5 weeks away, I wouldn’t worry about it. When I buy gifts I always figure out what I plan to get in advance, but never really get around to it until  a day or two before.

A little more than 1/2 the gifts from our registry have been purchased. I don’t know the date of my shower, since its a surprise. In my circle, we only give physical gifts for the shower, not the wedding, so I don’t expect that much more to be purchased.

I was shocked to look at our registry. I thought everyone would wait till the last minute to purchase something like I normally do, but so far flat ware, dining ware, duvet set and all matching sheets and pillowcases have been purchased as well as the wooden salad bowl set and wooden servers to go with it.
