It is 10 days until our wedding and we’ve only received 4 gifts (2 of which are from people that cannot attend). We did not include registry information in our invites per proper ettiquette however, we did include the link to our website and the website has our registry information.
Our biggest concern is not how many people bring gifts, its just that we already own a home and don’t want to end up with a ton of things we don’t need. And if we return them we will simply get store credit that we probably won’t get around to using. We have a cash registry as well as a small gift registry.
Should I be concerned that people are not paying attention to the website and have no idea about our registries? Or is it just still to early?

most will probably wait until the week of to buy, or send them to you after the wedding. I’m sure you don’t need to worry just yet!

I hate to say that I’ve been guilty at times for not buying something until the week of the wedding.
Sometimes, people get caught up in school, work and other responsibilities. I’m not sure if you invited a lot of college age people, but it is getting to the end of the semester for most people so they’re probably swamped with final projects and exams.
People don’t forget this stuff. They could even be trying to pull together to get you one big, wonderful gift. Don’t fret! 🙂

I asked on your post yesterday but didn’t get any response. So I’ll ask again; why are you concerned about getting gifts before the wedding? Is it suppose to be assumed you will get some before hand? I’m confused by this question for the 2nd time….

I wouldn’t worry. Many people will bring gifts to the wedding, especially if you’ve stated a preference for money. Others will mail their gifts after the wedding. If you’re only 10 days out, I’m sure you have a bunch of other things to worry about, so try to stop thinking about this. You can’t control what other people do. Whatever gifts you get is what you get, and there’s no sense spending a lot of time and energy speculating about it.
