I think people are just checking it out.  A lot of people buy gifts in store close to the wedding.

You still have a few months to go…maybe they’re waiting until closer to the date? I don’t even bother registry stalking because logging into the accounts is such a pain…

@JennyW1: Don’t beat yourself up over it–it’s common, and I’d be guilty too if it weren’t such a hassle!

@JennyW1: Some people could be looking at it, seeing what you want, and then buying things at other places. For instance, I saw my friend registered for a crock pot at bb&b but found the same one on super sale at Macy’s (and since Macy’s is my fiance’s part time job we also get a discount!) and got it there instead.

I would guess that people are looking at it to see what you’ve picked out, to get an idea of your tastes.  Personally, I just find it really interesting and fascinating what different couples register for, and I believe that their registries say something about the couple.  So I look at other people’s registries often without buying (I eventually buy, but usually try to hold off until I can take advantage of a sale).  Also, when I was putting together our registries, I often looked at my married or engaged friends’ registries to help me think of things that we missed, or just to get ideas, or to check our prices ranges.
