@ALAin2014:  haha there is another thread about this that I started, its here:

http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/i-need-to-stop-being-such-a-registry-creeper#axzz2bIIKYUsA

I just allowed myself to creep them until a week before my shower. Now I just creep the numbers to see if things are being purchased, but I don’t look at what has been purchased. If you don’t know when your shower is though, maybe just look at the numbers of gifts purchased rather than scanning through all the actual items!

It is possible that people are buying items off the registry for engagement gifts, shower gifts or wedding gifts.

 

I checked the registry out of curiousity and to all add/delete stuff along the way.  I found it exciting to see gifts being purchased!!! Try not to look at it everyday…. but if you do it is ok…. perhaps keep that a secret between you and yourself…. some might view this as obessive and make comment……

It’s so hard to not look as it’s getting closer to the shower… I will have to try and just look at the # as opposed to whats been bought (although I DID just see the other day our plates have been purchased, which, if you stalk my posts – this is HUGE.  I hate our plates!)

I like to stalk our registry lol. I should stop now, though, since my shower is on Saturday.

I guess I really don’t see the harm…it’s not like you can see who is getting what. Now, if you’re on it all day long/frantically refreshing the page then you have a problem lol.

I just stalked our registry for the first time, and saw that something was purchased… this is going to be trouble, I can tell already. LOL.

I know that a shower is happening, I go away A LOT in the summer, so they had to tell me when it is LOL. Otherwise everything else is a secret.
