@ImaStarr:  We haven’t actually received it yet, but I saw after stalking our registry that someone has purchased a fancy handheld food processor/blender. 🙂 It’s likely for our wedding shower at the end of the month.

I haven’t received one yet!  Not including shower gifts since I did receive plenty of those.

@ImaStarr:  crystal candlesticks. I’m sure we’ll never, ever use them but it was a special experience opening our first gift together.

Not counting bridal shower?

Our washer pooped out about a week before our wedding, so my parents’ gift ended up being a new washer. My mom is a last minute shopper, so it wasn’t like she already had something else bought and then bought the washer on top of it.

We got a convection oven and griddle.  It was super exciting!

When we first got engaged, my partner’s great aunt gave us a crystal picture frame.

Our first gift for our shower was a popcorn maker, ramekin set, and jar set from someone who couldn’t attend.

Our first wedding gift was a check. We just got it this week with a decline RSVP.

The wedding is more than 6 months away but our first official gift off the registry has been 4 sets of place settings and 8 Kate Spade wine glasses.

We’re not sure who it was but someone was feeling generous!

Hooray for the first present!! Our first one arrived a few weeks ago. It was a beautiful set of 30 drinking glasses, purchased from our registry. It was sent by an old high school friend who now lives in across the country. I was so touched that she thought of us!

My FI would have done something similar I’m sure! Gotta love it.

 

Hmmm I’m getting shower gifts and wedding gifts confused….but I’m 99% sure it was the down comforter I received months ago from old family friends.  I can’t wait to use it!  I got the duvet cover at my shower, but decided to wait to use most of my gifts till after the wedding.  Is that what most of you are doing?  Or using as you receive?
