So I am one of those bees who stalk their registry. I am always making sure I have the right things on there and changing as needed. That being said, I am surprised that people have started purchasing items already. Granted I have about 400 items total between both registries and only about 25 items have been purchase, but I was surprised by this. My shower isnt until August 10. ANyone else experience this? Did most people buy stuff right away or did they wait until the last minute?

I also got married on Sept 21st! I had a shower at the end of July and people didn’t really start buying stuff until a day or two before that shower.

I was a total registry stalker! 🙂 We got some people who purchased gifts far in advance but the activity really started to pick up a couple of weeks before my bridal shower in August and then continued steadily until the wedding in September. The best part was when people purchased items online and they were shipped before the wedding – it was like Christmas had come early each time I pulled into the driveway and saw a box left by UPS! Enjoy this time – it’s part of the fun! 🙂

I registered at two places and we didn’t have registry information available until our invitations went out (which was about 2.5 months prior) as I didn’t have a shower. I think the majority of the items were bought the month of the wedding but we still had things arrive about a week after the wedding since nearly all of the guests chose to have it shipped to our house.
