Honestly, I never would tell people if I stalk my registry (I hope I won’t but I probably will, lol). But especially if you know that they did it too, don’t feel guilty. Just don’t be so open about it anymore 😉

I never did, but I can completely understand the temptation.  I agree with @galloway111, I would never tell people if I did. Don’t feel guilty.  You registered so people would know what to get you.  You knew you were going to get the stuff eventually–what’s the big deal?

Wow, there is nothing bought off of our registries yet…

Yeah, you probably shouldn’t tell people that you stalk it. (I do stalk mine, but at my first shower, I just made sure to be genuinely visibly excited when I was opening everything!) If there isn’t much left on your registry, then either add stuff that you don’t really need (and you can keep it or take it back!) or be prepared for stuff that you don’t really want.

I totally stalked mine all the time, “just to make sure there was enough for people to choose from.” 😉 No, really, just ’cause I was antsy.

It did ruin the surprise a bit, but I didn’t tell people I had looked ahead of time. Don’t feel guilty…it’s not that unusual. Maybe just keep that info to yourself in the future.

I stalk my registries and I’m not ashamed to admit it. 🙂

I try not to look at mine, but sometimes I just can’t help it.  The other day I looked, and was all “Dang It…I didn’t want to know I was getting that” (something I really want), so probably won’t look anymore.

I think that a lot of Brides do it, just don’t be so open about it.

I totally stalked my registry for the first month-month.5 after I registered.  I wanted to write my thank you notes quickly for people who were buying us engagement gifts.  I think it annoyed my Future Mother-In-Law though so I will probably keep quiet from now on.
