i heard you’re sposed to have up to a year to give newly weds their gift(s). that sounds a tad extreme but how about a month?

Id wait a couple more weeks.  We had several items bought off our registry after the wedding – we got something just the other day and its almost been 2 months.  I know what you mean about itching to go shop though!!!  You could always buy the stuff you really want to make sure you get it (especially if its a bit more than what you think a guest would spend on a gift)  And that way you buy things before you spend the cash on other stuff!

I’d wait a month. I’ve been known to buy a gift for a wedding I couldn’t attend a couple weeks after! I think you’re safe after 3-4 weeks or so!

Depends… do you have a completion discount? I know some places only let you use it once, so I’d wait a few months and make sure you get everything you want. 🙂

Honestly, we went shopping the week after our wedding, when we got back from our mini-moon.  We had a smallish guest list and didn’t receive any gifts post-wedding.  We wanted to use our registry completion coupons and we wanted to start re-organizing our apartment.

Oooo, I love the idea of only waiting about a month!  But we might actually wait until after Christmas, because the mister’s been hinting to family that the registry is great for more than just wedding gifts.  🙂
