People tend to wait until the very last minute to get wedding or shower gifts. Don’t worry.

Sounds like you don’t have enough on the registry (unrelated to the lack of purchases so far).

@HourThyme:  Oh okay, that makes sense then.  So really you have a registry of ~100 items for around half your guest list.

My Mom phoned me today to say a lot of my items were ‘no longer available’ so I just have to over haul my registry.  We’re 30 days to wedding and only 1 item purchased. People like to do last minute. Don’t worry =)

I’m guilty of registry stalking, too. I was super-uncomfortable about registering at first, and I mostly put cheap items on the registry. Then my mother told me to add nicer items to our registry, because her friends would expect to buy nicer gifts, so I did. And I got a bit fixated on it!

Our wedding is 41 days away, and a small handful of presents have been purchased but not too many. I registered for plenty of items under $50, but I still wonder if it was wrong to register for such nice things. I’m not used to being showered with presents and attention!

I’m just glad to know I’m not the only registry stalker.

@HourThyme:  I guess it’s a regional thing? I’ve always seen wedding registries in Mexico – albeit called “Mesas de Regalos” – specifically in larger cities (I’m from one). On the other hand, if people are traveling, it may not be practical to do so with gifts, or they may just wait until they get to your venue city to purchase and gift-wrap? I do think a lot of people will purchase things last minute though.

My shower is this weekend and so far about 40 items have been purchased.  We’ve also gotten items in the mail – I know I usually get the gift the day of or the night before.
