For you married bees out there…how long did you wait for the remaining gifts to come in, before buying the remaining items on your registry? There are still a few gifts that we’re waiting to come in. There are 5 or 6 things that were ‘fulfilled’ on the registries that we still haven’t received, so I assume we’re just waiting for them to come in.
But I’m worried about those guests who didn’t tell the desk that they bought the gift from our registry, so it won’t show up.
So…I don’t want to jump the gun and go get the remaining items from the registry, while we’re still getting gifts in.
What do you ladies think?

We are waiting a month or so for the completion discount to come in. We’re not going to be able to buy everything right away, so those we are holding off for Christmas gifts.

@Knubbsy-Wubbsy: yeah we were thinking a month too…Luckily we got a bunch of gift cards from the wedding for the stores we are registered at, so we are itching to spend them 🙂

@napabridekelsey: Same here. Maybe 2/3 didn’t actually use the registry and instead got us various gift cards. We used the non-BBB gift cards right away for things we wanted right away (new sheets, glasses, etc) that we weren’t stuck on brands. We’re holding out for things like plates, knives, towels, etc that we know we want from BBB.

I got married last year and still haven’t bought what’s left LOL.

We waited a few weeks, then got the things that we really needed. Since then, we’ve had two more gifts arrive to our home. But since the ones we got were “fulfilled” we didn’t get anything double. If you really need something, I would just get it. Gifts trickle in after the wedding, but I wouldn’t count on it.

we bought everything we wanted a week after the wedding to take advantage of a 20% discount (it went back down to 10% and will remain 10% for the next 3 months).
