Have you had a shower yet? Or is yours a smaller wedding? If no shower yet, they are probably just waiting until the last minute. If it is a smaller guest list, then I’d still say the same thing. But in my experience, people started buying in mid-June for my end of July wedding… Mid-June was my first shower.

I buy presents a week beforehand or the Friday before 🙂

We’d a couple of things bought, and I actually thought it was a bit early!

The morning of my shower, shower started at 1, 63 items were bought LOL. I always buy early, but that proved to me, that I am the only person I know that buys that way LOL.

Other than gifts that were given at our shower, we (by we I mean ME, registry stalker) didn’t notice much being bought until about 2 weeks before our wedding.

Nothing had been bought on mine until this last Friday.  My first shower was Saturday and now things are flying off right and left.  I always wait until the last minute.  I wouldnt worry.

Besides the shower gifts I have had maybe 5 other people buy wedding gifts. So really not that many. Yeah I think people wait until the last minute. I am guilty of this too, for one friend I bought their gift the day of their wedding.

We got our first wedding gift from our registry in early April (for our July wedding). My shower is in a week and a half and there have been quite a few items bought since the shower invitations went out. I guess it just depends on your shower and whether your guests are procrastinators or not.
