    amf9201:  <sigh> I do.  It started because I logged in to swap some items out and discovered a couple of our place settings had been purchased already.  I was so excited about it, that I started making it a regular thing.  The unfortunate part, is that Macy’s also has a “Thank You” Manager which shows who bought the item so nothing that’s been bought so far will be a surprise.  

    However, I am trying to stop now since I know the shower invites went out on Saturday.  I am horrible about faking reactions so if I already know what people got me, it’ll be obvious.  lol

    My registry doesn’t tell me who purchsed what so I peek at it. I’m still surprised by who gives me what 🙂

    Yeah I’m guilty of it.  Our wedding is in September, but we have already received a gift from the registry.  Up until that point, I hadn’t touched the registry.  But now, I keep looking in case another early gift arrives out of the blue.

    I definitely have looked at my registry several times, but mostly for the issue that things have gone out of stock and also that 3 items ended up on my Target registry that neither me or my SO registered for!  Apparently we now have a hummingbird feeder and nectar on the way 🙂

    Guilty!, its even more fun now that guests are starting to purchase items. Our most expensive gift was just purchased! Totally wasn’t expecting to get it and diffinately felt guilty putting such an expensive item on it, but they got a good deal love Macys.

    Soon2BeMrsS:  oh wow. I am so glad you posted about thank you managers ruining the surprise of who bought what for showers. I guess I have to stop checking? I am really so excited though that I still might drop a tear or two even for the presents I know about. I’ll admit that reading this thread makes me want to take a peek right now.

    I look all the time. I don’t see the big deal None of it is really a surprise because I registered for certain items and someone is bound to purchase them. Most of our guests have opted to send the gifts to my house so we have a ton already and we’ve already unpacked them and sent thank you’s.

    I look at it once a week – mostly to check when things have been discontinued or backordered (it happens fairly often). 

    Its fun to see – nothing has really been bought yet, my shower isn’t for another few weeks!

    I totally check mine, not often but whenever I think about it.  We still have like 8 months until the wedding though, so like nothing ever changes.

    I’ve been checking ours, because I (and sometimes FI, too) keep remembering stuff I was supposed to add but never got around to adding. So far, no-one has bought anything, so it doesn’t technically count as peeking? But then I also occasionally drop in because I can’t remember what we actually HAVE registered for, and I admittedly keep wishing someone would have bought something so I’d have something to peek at. I solemnly promise to stop doing this when the wedding gets closer, but argh it’s so tempting to just check if we’ve gotten anything… 😀

    But honestly I just like looking at all the awesome stuff we found! I just hope people will actually buy us things instead of giving just money. Money is nice to have, but it’s a boring present to receive in my opinion. I won’t complain, but there are some things I definitely wish people would get us… we’ll see!

    I do. I HAVE A PROBLEM.

    I somehow in my crazy bride brain started equating it to how much people care about our wedding. So people have purchased only 4 things off our registry for our wedding in 3 weeks. Which I then take to mean “NOBODY LOVES ME” which is the most ridiculous thought in the world. My normal, rational side is like, “gifts don’t matter and besides, lots of people don’t buy from the registry anymore” but my bride side is like, “THEY DON’T EVEN WANT TO COME, NOBODY WILL SHOW UP”. It’s a serious problem hahaha.
