I got mostly registry things. A few people bought things that weren’t on the registry. We also got 2 gift cards to where we’re registered. My lingerie was given to me at the bachelorette party.

I think it’s mostly registry gifts. My mother however is super bummed about not being able to bring me lingerie (WTH?!). I don’t know if she was just trying to harrass me or if she really wanted to do it – I told her if she really wants buy me something she can give it to me when we all get together before the wedding.

I got mostly stuff from my registry – and was really surprised by how generous people were!  I got two pieces of lingerie – one from my aunt, one from my mom – but both were really classy, beautiful nightgowns rather than gross stuff.  I was really nervous about getting lingerie, but as so pleased with what I did get that it was not embarassing at all.

LOL my grandma got me lingerie. It was funny. I think you can expect mostly from the registry, maybe some money, and a few off-registry purchases. That was my experience.

I didn’t get any lingerie. I got one gift card to VS. I got mostly registry items and gift cards, and I’d say 30% non-registry items.

At my first one I received kitchen gadgets that I really needed, but that I didn’t actually register for. At my second one I didn’t get anything I needed really.
