Our invitations started arriving in mailboxes today (YAY!). I am a little registry-obsessed, and I’m wondering which gift we will get first. I have a feeling it will be a momentous occasion. (I hope this doesn’t make me sound greedy – I’m just excited!)
What was your first wedding present?

Our first was from fiance’s dad, who got us Superfly camp stove and titanium camp cookware to go with it. That man knows what we like! It was a great gift 🙂

2 days after we got engaged, my parents gave us our toasting champagne flutes for our wedding – kind of a tradition in our family.

Our first was a complete place setting of our dishes and flatware, plus salt and pepper shakers and a few tumblers. It was great because it was an incredibly generous gift and it was great to get a complete setting! The gift came from a friend who probably just wanted to get her shopping out of the way.

Our first present was our coffee maker! I got really nervous because I had just updated our registry a few days prior and was worried that I hit "buy" instead of "add to registry". My FI was really excited because the coffee maker was his first requirement of our registry (mine was the KitchenAid which arrived a week later 🙂 )

The first gift that was purchased from out registry was our dining set from my aunt!
But that has not been shipped yet, but the first thing that I have received is one of our Wushof knives! 🙂

We’ve actually received our Rachel Ray pan set from my mom and his mom. We are waiting until the wedding to use them, which is hard for my FI, because they are the ones that he wanted and he wants to use them now!! But we felt weird about using them before we got married. So they are in the spare bedroom/wedding room right now!!!

The first present we received was our silverware! I kept telling people I never thought 2 people could get so excited over forks! It is fun though and we’ve used just about everything we got from the bridal shower already. We’re already living in sin so I really didnt think waiting or not waiting to use our gifts would affect anything.

Our first gift was our flatware. We had it in our storage space because we aren’t using gifts before the wedding… and the white trash fers that live upstairs from us stole it. We got half of it back and money for the rest to rebuy it but my god. I know its bad luck to use gifts before the wedding but what about when its stolen? And now whenever we go to use it we wont’ be thinking wow that was awfully nice of Aunt Judy and Uncle Terry we’ll be thinking how it was stolen….
Sorry still bitter I guess.

I got really nervous when we didn’t have any registry hits, but then my MOH broke the ice, and got us our dinner place settings we registered for! I heart her!! Then I started noticing other things being purchased, and now I feel better, but I’m nervous about transporting it all back home after the wedding!

we didn’t have a registry, so we expected people will or will not give us presents at the wedding day, but days before the wedding, my husband’s boss gifted us a giant microwave! i think he was very kind and generous!
