I *think* that sometimes if somebody buys something from your registry and then something else at the same time, that the something else they purchased may show up as a purchased item on your registry. It’s possible they were just picking up something for themselves?

Yes, this happened to me. Someone purchased a pitcher for us to go with some glasses. When they purchased it the cashier added it to our registry. It showed up as requested “0” and purchased “1”

@missrobots:  Yes that happened to us as well.

A guest bought us our luxurious sheets (amazing!!) and bought themselves a sushi set….we do not eat sushi. I found it odd until we recieved the sheets and realized that because they advised they were purchasing from the registry their personal item was also added to our list. Not sure why BBB does that but they do.

Wow, interesting to know!  I’ll have to check my BB&B registry as it gets closer!

we had a few add ons that we did not originally put on our registry.  Some we liked some we returned.  THis happens, people want to think outside the registry sometimes, which is fine you can always return it after the wedding 🙂

Happened to me, too – my Mom’s friend decided she didn’t like the shower curtain we picked and bought us a different one (plus a liner), which then appeared on our BBB registry.

I had someone add something to my registry.  The store even sent a little card notifying me that it was done.

I work retail, and we can give guests the option to add something to a registry when purchasing a gift in our store. As a cashier, I didn’t do it often – most people chose to just get a gift receipt or to switch the non-registry item out for something else on the list – but when I did, it was usually because the customer had selected an item that resembled an item on the registry, then got rude with me when I told them it wasn’t on the list and tried to suggest alternatives. I would eventually just ask them if they wanted to add the new item to the registry, and many of them chose to.

However, I think adding an item also makes it easier for you to return items that were purchased for you if you don’t have a receipt. Our store gives out coupons or giftcards or something for registry purchases, so maybe they’re trying to get you more perks?
