Okay Bees I am kinda freaking out here. My shower is coming up VERY soon and I just peaked at our registry. Nothing has been bought. Nada. Not even a dish towel.
I know it’s stupid to be nervous, but I’m afraid that a. no one is coming to my shower or b. no one is getting us anything.
Did this happen to any other bees??

Yes, I have peeked, mostly because I thought of things I wanted to add, and so I could see what was bought. Also, people are mailing my gifts, as my shower is out of state, so the gifts won’t be a “surprise” at the shower anyway.
When is your shower?

I did it on accident- I didn’t realize it would show me what was bought (just thought it would show others) and since no one had bought anything yet I went on to adjust something and like 10 things had been purchased. luckily it had a splash page that showed me that so I didn’t see what was actually bought. I got chastised pretty hard from my MoH when I told on myself haha.

Aw, don’t worry! Maybe they used your list for inspiration and got you something equally fabulous. Or maybe they’re like most people and just tend to leave things to the last minute. Either way, I’m sure you will have a wonderful time sharing time with your family and friends – don’t give up on them yet!

Maybe no one bought anything because they’re giving you money!
I looked at my shower almost everyday since the beginning of this year and my shower (February). I never heard that you aren’t supposed to look at it until WB. But I hate surprises so I peek at everything! Plus I also kept adding/removing/swapping items on my registry online, so I had no choice but to peek! In addition to hating surprises and having no patience….I am also very indecisive.
There were a couple of items bought from the registry that I didn’t receive yet…

Thanks bees! My shower is in a couple weeks. Maybe people are just waiting till the last minute.
To make matters worse, I just saw a post from someone else about how they just set up their registry and people are already buying things and shower invites haven’t been sent out yet. Ugh.

Oh man, Fiance and I look at ours every day. Our shower is Saturday and we’ve been stalking them continuously. I’m actually a little worried that not much has been bought from ours too. And what’s worse – we can see WHO has bought stuff, so now I’m wondering what all the people who are coming but names aren’t on anything are buying us, lol.

I used to work at crate & barrel and most people wait until the week of to buy gifts. You should check your registries periodically anyway- if one gets “wiped out” after the shower, it’s good to add more things, so people don’t get too creative.

I think you’re safe. My shower is next Saturday, and only 3 people have bought gifts. I’m mostly concerned that gifts won’t ship here before I leave (I’m headed back to my hometown for a month), and then people won’t get thank you notes in a timely manner lol.

Like 6 times a day. Yes, A little excessive.

Almost everyone I know waits until the week of, the day before, or the day of the shower to buy presents. Don’t worry!
And yes, I peeked all the time. My husband (then-FI) kept telling me to stop so I’d be surprised, but I couldn’t stop. I was addicted!

We kind of had to because we actually ran out of things on our registries rigth before our shower. We were watching it to make sure it didn’t get sold out, but it did and we ended up having to register for more stuff.
When is your shower? If it’s still a week away, I wouldn’t worry. People tend to buy things last minute.

I checked like every hour. Honestly.
