I really wanted the champagne flutes on the registry. Like so bad. I couldnt wait so I bought them myself. Then I couldn’t get the same collection plates out of my head and was praying someone would buy them, but was nervous bc they were a little “pricier” than others, so I bought those too lol. Finally Fiance told me to stay away and stop buying our registry gifts but I get so excited I want things now lol

I bought stuff on our registry. I saw that a set of our dishes was being discontinued, so I bought them. I love them and I’m so glad I didn’t let them go.

@Diamondgurl:  I would definately wait until after the wedding, just because you might be taking things other people would have liked to get. I know there will be things that will be left over then and i’ll decided what’s important enough to buy…that being said, I did have the urge to buy a few things when I saw the amazing sale macy’s had, but I refrained lol

I’ll admit I’ve been SUPER tempted when things go on sale at Kohl’s… but I figure it can wait til after the wedding if htere are such frequent sales!

I did that with an item that got listed as soon to be discontinued.  I had to have an excuse, LOL! I’m going to wait til afterwards since Macy’s gives us a giftcard after the wedding!

LOL! I probably will after the shower but before the wedding, my shower is in a month though so I won’t be buying anything before then because I’ll probably get most of it

@Diamondgurl:  some things yes. like I have some bigger ticket iteams that are 100-150 regular that have been on bonus buys for $30 or less. and no one had known about the registry at that point, so I snatched them up.
