I was threatened by quite a few people NOT to look at my registry now that my shower invites are out!
So my question to you is this:
- did you peek? (once? many times?)
- if you did peek, did it ruin the surprise?
Just for fun.

I was definitely checking at least once a day the week before the shower.

It’s still almost 6 months to the wedding and I’m already peeking! It was very exciting when people started buying us stuff this far in advance…lol

- Wedding: June 2011 - Sydney, Australia
No-one knows about our registry yet (we won’t be dropping hints until the wedding invitations go out) so I HATE that all those pretty things we registered for are just sitting there. (I am SO tempted to go back & nab a few things because I want them NOW, NOW, NOW!)

I was really bad and even checked the thank you manager that told me who bought them.

Yes, my shower is on Monday and I’ve been peeking! It’s fun, but it might kind of ruin the surprise. On the other hand, it is generally resommended to check on a registry to make sure that there are enough items left in all price ranges, right?

100% guilty. Once a day… I have no willpower

ah hahah I’m so glad I’m not the only one! I felt like a terrible person..especially when I accidentally saw the dyson fulfilled (I swear, I was updating before the invites even went out and it popped up!) I am having so much trouble not looking!

I haven’t registered yet, but my roommate a few years ago went online every night and looked at her registry! haha 🙂

I went on to make sure nothing was out of stock, and saw that something had been bought (3 months before the first shower). Then, I checked a couple more times in the weeks leading up. The last time I looked though, I realized I had to make myself stop. My first shower is next week, and I didn’t want to be opening gifts and thinking “oh so you’re the one who bought the silverware.” So I’m not going on again until after the second shower (1 1/2 mos before the wedding). I might have my sister or someone check things out to make sure there are still plenty available items.
I’m also the person who never wants to know what she’s getting for Christmas though, because I love surprising my family and wouldn’t want to take that away from them. So maybe i’m weird.

We’re going to register tomorrow but I can already guarantee that I’ll be a registry peeker.

We’re sending invites tomorrow so you better believe I am ready to peek 😉

@Miss OBG: That’s a very good point about not reallt being surprized.
Actually, I was wondering a bit about that too…at my shower I will gush like crazy about the gifts for sure, but the guests know that I essentially picked them out. Kind of weird, but I guess the gushing will come from thankfulness more than surprize which is ok too!
This thread is mking me what to peek again.
