I didn’t need to check mine, my mother did it for me. She was obsessed with checking them. She would call me up every time something on it changed and ask had I noticed and who had bought it, etc. It was sort of annoying at the time but now to think of it it was funny 🙂

This is too funny! I check the ones for showers I am going to, just to see how lucky the bride is!

I usually stalk them around important dates….showers, etc. The wedding is in 23 days, so I’ll more than likely return to "stalker mode" here in 2 weeks or so. =)

I love being surprised so I COMPLETELY stay away from my registry leading up to major events. I just had my shower this past weekend, so I stopped looking at my registry online about 3 weeks prior. Two weekends ago my FI wanted to update one of our registries when we were at the mall. After we scanned everything, I made him upload it to their computer so that there was NO CHANCE that I would see what had been purchased.

My shower isn’t till April.  Right now I go on there and update/change stuff.  But I think I’m going to stop going on there in the next week or two, when invites go out…. or at least I hope I will.  I want the gifts I get to be a surprise *or WHICH* one’s I get to be a surpise!!  This being said, curiousity often gets the best of me!

I am also a registry stalker. I have a shower this weekend and I admit I’ve checked them today. I need to stop because I do like being surprised!

My sister asked me not to look at it, so I haven’t looked at it since the last time I added items!

I’m a registry adder and second guesser.  I can’t work in the UK so I have way to much free time to read up on blender reviews and slow cooker reviews and what not. Too much free time is dangerous

I definitely change mine randomly because I second guess my choices.  However, this has resulted in a larger than necessary registry.  I actually was super-excited when I checked one day and saw that my super-huge, uber-expensive (on there for the completion discount) pots and pan set showed that it had been purchased.  After some detective work, I discovered that someone bought off the wrong registry.  How lucky is the random bride who is getting my pots and pans!  🙂

hahaha MrsCPT! I can’t believe someone bought yours and it was for another bride! lol

I have also realized our registry is growing because I second guess and find new stuff!
