@NikkiKillpretty:  Don’t panic! A lot of people got stuff from my registry but failed to update the list. I literally thought no one was coming to mine and was extremely nervous but It turned out okay! Honestly, I think I had TOO many people show up! I would have much rather had a small group of people. You will have a great time regardless, and if not many people show up then that’s their loss!

@NikkiKillpretty:  don’t worry. sometimes stores don’t update the registry or the shoppers forget to say this is a registry item.  but more than likely,  your shower is on sunday, people will probably buy gifts on friday and saturday.

now i know you know everything on your registry. but stop being a snooper and be surprised when you open all the gifts.

@NikkiKillpretty:  at mine a lot of people bought non registry gifts and bought gift cards so its not a bad sign. Also, many many people are last minute shoppers! They still have a week so you will probably see a lot of things go off the registry this week.

Sorry, I have a similar feeling for my shower tonight. :/ So far, only 4 people are confirmed… Me, planner, and both FGMILs. One of which I had to call to make sure she got the invite in the first place, and she thought it was tomorrow. Even my friend, who I originally thought was coming, hasn’t responded to either the invite, the planner, or me.

I honestly thought no one would rsvp to mine (it’s next month) but as far as those go, I’ve got an 75% turnout rate, which I think is pretty good!  Sometimes when it’s a party in our honor we think no one will show up when the complete opposite is true.  I hope you have a lovely shower. 🙂

@ajillity81:  +1, I’m such a last minute, bridal shower registry shopper.  I usually end up suffering though because all the “good” things are gone.

I wanted to update… There were 7 of us in all (however the wedding is small and 15 or so were invited to the shower), but you know what? We had a ton of fun and it was really personable. If you have at least a few energetic attendees, it’ll end up being a good time.
