@SnowInApril:  I felt like this when I started opening wedding cards.  We had originally told all of our guests to not get us presents because so many of them had to travel (we wanted to pay for everyone’s flight, but couldn’t so we told them that could be their gift to us).  So when our wedding came and only a few items were purchased from our registry, we weren’t shocked or surprised.  However, a day or two after the wedding, we decided to open up the cardbox (I made it so the only way to get cards out was ripping it apart) and we were stunned at how generous our guests were.

@SnowInApril:  I haven’t received any gifts yet, but I am moved by all the positive responses to my STD’s. So many emails and phone calls of family and friends who are super excited! They are group booking cabins and staying the whole weekend. I’m overwhelmed by it all already! Congrats and good luck this weekend!
