I am not close to my wedding, but I usually buy gifts when I have money for it and it is usually early like a month before the wedding…

But my fi’s family buys gifts as they are going to the wedding! It will be 2 and they will be shopping for a present for a 3pm wedding. A lot of his family members just got married and I usually rode/attended with them…so I know firsthand, it is soo annoying lol

Usually no earlier than a month before the wedding.  But lately, we’ve just been giving cash for gifts as a lot of couples we know don’t really need too much for their homes.  Either way, we don’t give the couple their gift until the wedding.

I bought a gift nice and early for my friend’s wedding in mid-Juiy, but I had it shipped to myself, so I can give it to her wrapped at her wedding.  She must know that it’s been purchased off of her registry, but she probably has no idea who purchased it yet.

We got our first gift really early on, like 2 months prior to the wedding.  But then there was a long gap where we didn’t get anything.  Most gifts were sent to us in the last couple weeks leading up to the wedding… and we had a trunk-full of gifts to load at the end of our reception too!

I buy the gift at least a month before the wedding; more registry items left to choose from that way. I have them shipped to me and then deliver the gift at the reception gift table.

I’ve gotten about ten gifts so far, I think everyone else will just bring them to the wedding.
