I agree not terrible at all!  I actually got one of those Bed Bath and Beyond “$25 off $50 purchase” coupons for referring a friend and I plan on getting some of the smaller little odds and ends (things that are like $4 and $5) off the registry.  I had toyed with them being on there in the first place and have taken them off multiple times but with my coupon I don’t feel as bad about keeping them on there and buying them all up to leave some of the more “traditional” gifts on there. 🙂

LOL. We bought our own China before the wedding!! I couldn’t resist, the style was being discountinued.. 

Felt the same, there are soo many things you ask for they have their options. Why not?

No its not like anyone will know (if you mom stays quiet about it).. My suggestion though is to make sure you still have plenty of items on your list for others to buy.

I totally plan on buying my carpet deep cleaner/steamer off my registry.  I promised myself a present if I lost 20 lbs ( I am soooo close, any day now ), and that’s going to be it.  Besides, it’s one of the more expensive items, so no one else will probably get it anyway.

Not terrible. I got some gift cards this week from guests who are not attending, and I really want to go use them LOL 

But no, I don’t think it’s a bad thing, especially if you thought your item might not be there the next day!

I bought my china place settings off Rue La La b/c it was really cheap. I figure I was just using some of the money I figured I’d receive.  Plus, I thought that if other people saw that I got the dishes, they’d buy me the serving pieces and pieces.
