You don’t think they might be going into the stores and buying the you things off your registry? Lots of people don’t like buying offline…

As someone that has bought many bridal gifts… i always go buy them the day before! nothing like waiting till the last minute eh? lol i HIGHLY doubt that your family doesnt like you! Your out of town family that is not coming to your shower might be waiting to give you a present at your wedding.

Seriously, I think the day before, if not the day of is when people typically buy gifts.  The advantage of a registry is that they don’t have to “shop” they just go to the store and buy what you want. 

Don’t stress about this!!

I’m a horrible procrastinator and I’ve always bought the bridal shower gift the day of or the day before a shower.  Lot’s of people tend to wait until the last minute or forget to mark it off the registry during checkout.

Hahah, I’m feeling the same way! My shower is Sunday and there’s like two things bought from the registry! I’m thinking either people are procrastinators or they’re buying stuff that’s not registry!

I know that I am totally a last minute shower gift shopper! I’m terrible with that and always go the week of to buy the gift! I wouldn’t worry too much…as your shower gets closer, things will start flying off of your registry!

My FSIL’s shower was this past weekend and hardly anything was bought until the weekend before the shower, with about half or so being bought the week before. I wouldn’t stress. Most of her family and friends lived at least 35-45 minutes from the stores she registered at and still many bought from those stores. I wouldn’t worry too much. You still have some time, and I’m sure you’ll be surrounded by love (and gifts) at your shower!

They might be planning a shopping trip for this weekend too, to get your gift.

I wouldn’t place so much importance on the gifts. They’re your family; of course they love you! The gifts will come.

I agree with the above. People are always last minute shoppers for showers. Closer family usually buy the week before, as to figuring out as to buy a gift or a few pitching in for a bigger gift. And although planned, people always have a hard time agreeing on the one gift to pitch in for. And the day before and day of are the days most people buy. I have never gone to a shower of any sort without having got it a day or two before or even picking up a few extras the day of as well.

I agree with all of hte previous posters that it is way to early to get worried!  Many guests purchase gifts the day before or day of.  Plus, I also got some great shower gifts that weren’t on my registry.

My shower was this past weekend, and a lot of the gifts weren’t bought until a day or so before… and the things that were bought were little: spatulas, bowls, etc.

Some people bought things that weren’t on the registry (and consequently, I returned most of them), and some just gave gift cards or “personal” gifts like soaps, lotions, and candles.

Oh, and everything the shower guests bought came from my BB&B registry. So far, only one person has used my Amazon registry. I bet my Amazon registry feels unloved. 😉

Don’t worry – I’m sure you’ll get lots of gifts at your shower, and I’m sure most will be bought the day before/of!
