So I’m a total registry creeper, I can’t help it. I’ve been stalking our registry since I made it and I keep being sad that no one has bought anything (realistically, our wedding is in 3 weeks, I’m not having a shower – there’s no reason for anyone to have bought us anything but you pick all these pretty things and obviously hope that someone will buy them!!)
I went to creep today and 2 of the items have been purchased 😀
(A pitcher & glasses set and the wine glasses) YAY! So excited
**Yes, I know that no one is required to buy presents, I’m not getting married for the presents, but come on – who doesn’t love getting presents!?!?

Ive heard people don’t buy off the registries too often anymore, is that true guys? I guess they bring checks or whatever they see fit?

I know a lot of people don’t buy off the registry anymore but I like to so I can get sales to get more for my money.

I can’t stop stalking mine either. I actually made myself not look at it for a whole day, and than caved in and looked, only to see that 3 items were bought, was starting to get worried that people wouldn’t use it (totally fine if they don’t). But rather excited that we will now have a functioning microwave again, (ours turn table is broken so ours doesn’t function well).

lynnwall23: one of the gifts that was purchased for us was just over $100 off (it’s a ridiculously overpriced pticher and glasses set) so I’m happy that whoever bought it was able to get such a great deal on it.
cls9q: I ususally only buy gifts for showers but we have a few people who we know don’t like giving money as gifts so we registered. I’d rather give people an idea what to get us than get a bunch of stuff that we don’t need and feel bad returning.

cls9q: I had 63 things purchased off my registry for my shower. I got most of them – I’m just waiting on my bread maker which I guess we’re getting at the wedding!

Yay! I was really excited when the first item was purchased off my registry too 🙂 Mine’s been a few items here and there, but I have two showers coming up in a week (!) so I think there will be more movement soon (at least people keep asking where we are registered). I think people just buy them last minute!

My wedding is in 4 months. We got our registries up about 4 months ago I think? Well, I posted on fb that we finally after 6 hours finished our registries. FI’s aunt jumped on them and I’m pretty sure that she’s the only one who bought something off it: FI’s Ginsu knife set he wanted!
But yeah, I’m stalking ours too! Hoping that someone gets us the camping gear we registered for. really need the tent actually LOL.
I’m having a lingerie bridal shower too…so nothing off the registries for that!

I loved stalking my shower registry… Most items were bought the week of the shower! We registered for around 120 items and we received about 85 of them all at my shower. The rest are little odds and ends (tongs, $3 kitchen wants). I honestly was overwhelmed and shocked.
It’ll start coming off. We got items after the shower from people who couldn’t make it since it was a surprise.
