We are waiting a month or so for the completion discount to come in. We’re not going to be able to  buy everything right away, so those we are holding off for Christmas gifts.

@napabridekelsey: Same here. Maybe 2/3 didn’t actually use the registry and instead got us various gift cards. We used the non-BBB gift cards right away for things we wanted right away (new sheets, glasses, etc) that we weren’t stuck on brands. We’re holding out for things like plates, knives, towels, etc that we know we want from BBB.

I got married last year and still haven’t bought what’s left LOL.

We waited a few weeks, then got the things that we really needed. Since then, we’ve had two more gifts arrive to our home. But since the ones we got were “fulfilled” we didn’t get anything double. If you really need something, I would just get it. Gifts trickle in after the wedding, but I wouldn’t count on it.

we bought everything we wanted a week after the wedding to take advantage of a 20% discount (it went back down to 10% and will remain 10% for the next 3 months).
