I don’t think it’s too early, but I don’t think you should worry either. Being that you already own your home, my guess is that most people are already figuring you have the basic necessities, so you’ll probably wind up with more monetary gifts at the wedding itself than you will material gifts.

Did you check your registry to see what has been purchased?

Most of our guests brought gifts to the wedding. It may depend on who is on your guest list too–family may be more prone to give cash/check (our family definitely went this route). Our college friends waited until the few days before, or day of I’m sure. People still send gifts after. Some people will never bring even a card. I think you’re fine!

we only got 2 gifts before the wedding. our registry was pretty lame by the time the wedding came (most stuff was bought for the engagement party and shower), so most people just gave us money.

At this point, unless you have a “big” bridal shower scheduled, your gifts will come at the wedding.   I have never sent a wedding gift through a delivery service or the mail.  In the case of showers, your best bet to find the higher end of your registry items, is at a shower attended by the older ladies of each family.  There is a tendency to want to outdo one another, honed by years of shower-going:-)

My wedding is this week and I just started getting gifts in the mail a couple days ago.  Don’t worry too much about it, you’ll probably get them closer to the wedding or even shortly after.

Most people bring gifts to the wedding.  I wouldn’t worry yet.

I don’t think you should worry! Many people either bring gifts to the wedding or send them after the wedding!

We only got about 4 gifts mailed to our home prior to the wedding, and we invited over 400 people. Most either brought the gifts to the wedding itself, or they shipped AFTER the wedding if they couldn’t attend. I would have to say that we got about 20 separate gift after the wedding was over.

So, don’t worry! Most are probably just waiting until afterwards or bringing the gift to the wedding.

The only gifts we got before the wedding were from the shower.  That’s a lie.  My coworker sent me her gift before the wedding so we wouldn’t have to deal with it.  People usually wait until the last minute.

A LOT of gifts from our registry were purchased the week of the wedding (many the *day* of). Don’t sweat it. Maybe people are planning to give you cash. 😉

Pardon if this is rude or odd but; I don’t get what there is to worry about? Why should you expect gifts before the wedding? I’m confused?
