I logged in just to add something to my registry and I was shocked to find that something had been purchased, long before the shower invites even go out. I’m pretty sure my parents bought me the Keurig I’ve been really wanting. πŸ™‚

I don’t see any harm in stalking your registry. You need to keep an eye on it in case you need to add more things.

I’ve told myself that I won’t stalk because I love surprises! But, realistically I’m a little too far out for people to start buying gifts-so we will see how I act when it actually happens!

@iheartnerds: There are only 2 things on our registry that I REALLY want! 1) The Keurig Platinum and 2) A super duvet cover πŸ™‚

I thought you meant stalker as in stalking other people’s registries!. Haha! Because I do that. When my friends get married, I always purchase from the registry. But when fiance’s friends get married, he likes to give cash. But I still log on and see what these couples have registered for anyway. I’m just being nosey I guess. However it does give me ideas for my own registry.

YES!  I can’t help it…. Our wedding shower is next month and someone just purchased the first item from our registry. YAY!

I’m a superstar registry stalker.

A couple of times a day πŸ™‚

It doesn’t help that I’ve always used registries to ‘learn’ about the brides and grooms I’m working with – so I read into them WAYYYY more than most people πŸ™‚

i also thought you meant stalking other folk’s registry.  i like to stalk ex bf’s registries and random people.  once i looked up a registry of a girl that was killed on her wedding day.  i know.  kind of morbid.

you can tell a lot about a person by looking at their registry.  i’m a total kitchen and home goods snob.  i remember saying, “so he’s marrying someone with terrible taste.  look at that bed set and those pots and pans.  who would pick out a…”  and the girl in the news, i thought her registry was simple but very good.

i don’t know what i would register for.  i’m a little older (31) so i bought many of the items myself.  i have my all clad, le creuset, kitchenaid mixer, keurig…

I’ve been stalking our registry to make sure that nothing needs to be added or deleted before the shower.  Plus, Fiance says his family has started purchasing stuff and nothing has shown up on the registry so I hope that they had them scan the registry when they checked out!  Either that or Fiance has no idea what’s really going on :-/

@thewheelsonthebus: You should start a thread “analyzing” people’s registries. I think that it would be super interesting. I would read it. πŸ˜›

Guilty of stalking and analyzing… I am not going to lie!  I was actually super paranoid that we over-registered, etc… I kept analyzing with friends of mine… I guess I am not alone though!

How sad am I  that we are not even registed yet but I go on to Crate & Barrel to add things to my “favorite” list.  We are 13 months away and have not made time to register yet, but I am SO excited to finally get my OWN things. πŸ™‚

@Everdeen: Ha! 

I’ve been doing it almost as long as I’ve been working in the wedding world… it started when I had a bride bring the most amazing toasting flutes ever to use – she told me it from her Tiffany Registry… and I just *had* to look at what that registry entailed πŸ™‚

It just helps me get a ‘feel’ for the couple. A lot of times I act only as their coordinator and not their planner so I don’t get as much hands on time with them… scoping out their registries gives me a general feel for them.

That said… I can only imagine what ‘work’ wheels would think about ‘bride’ wheels registries!  πŸ™‚  heehee
