We had a few things purchased in the first couple of weeks that our registry was up. Since then, it’s been quiet. I’ve been registry stalking, and I noticed one more thing was purchased, but that’s it.
Does stuff really start moving as you get closer in? We’re 3 weeks away, and we’re doing a semi-destination wedding, so I hope stuff doesn’t get delivered when we’re gone.

People are procrastinators. For my shower most of the things were purchased the day before. I’d imagine it will be the same for the wedding. Since you’re doing a semi-destination wedding people might wait until you get back to give you your gifts

Not until we bought it out after our wedding. Haha!
Seriously, I received a little of it from my shower (not much though–mostly lingerie and bride-y stuff) and a couple of things on our wedding, but the majority of our guests gave cash. We decided to buy everything out when we returned from our honeymoon and my only regret is not using Ebates when we spent the $2k at Macys!

Same for me, date twin! I wonder if people will give us cards instead of gifts for the wedding. Most of my stuff that’s left on the registry is the expensive stuff. I’m just hoping that if people choose to give us gifts off the registry, they have them shipped to my parents’ house instead of bringing them to the wedding. (It took soooo long to pack everything into our 3 cars after the shower…I just want to get to the hotel after we get married!)

With our registry, we had only two purchases made a few weeks after we sent out our Save-The-Date Cards which were sent out 7 months prior. Not until 2 weeks prior to the wedding day did the activity pick up. It was crazy within the two weeks almost every days things were being purchased, and we were getting deliveries, so yeah I agree with the PP, in my case my guests were procrastinators, lol. Almost everything was purchasd off our registry (we only had one), up until the day before we left for our wedding.

My online registry didn’t budge until about a little over a week before the wedding! 🙂 I was like, what the heck!

2 weeks before it started moving but really 1 week before was peak and it was a destination wedding for our guests and near home for us. Our registry delivers to the store which takes up to 3 months its rediculous so nothing is in yet from what was purchased for the wedding.
