lol, a lot of people peek. You have a registry so you basically know what you are going to get anyways 😛

I peeked a bit.  Still got some surprises, though.

I think when they say to add to the registry, they mean if you have multiple showers or before the wedding.  Or thats what I understood anyway.  We didn’t, as I had picked everything I wanted or needed the first time around.  14 pages between 2 stores?  Figured thats enough for guests to choose from.

For my baby shower, I totally peeked. Not really on purpose, but I would think of something I wanted to add, so I would see what was bought when I logged in. Surprisingly, a lot of people bought things the DAY OF or day before, so most of the presents were still surprises.

I’ll be honest. I looked pretty much daily. It may have ruined the surprise a little bit, but it helped me manage my registries, including how many items were left, if items became unavailable, etc.

I always peek. Haha, I can’t resist! Plus, if any guests buy you gifts online (if your registry offers this option), you will get an email telling you what they bought you and when it is ready for pick up. This makes it next to impossible not to know who is buying you what!!

Girl, peek! It’s fun and harmless. I used it as a quicker way to write thank you notes. 

I would also say that I think you have a good ammount of gifts on your registries. 🙂

OMG I stalked my registry multiple times every day for weeks before my shower!!  I memorized every gift I was getting beforehand, LOL.  Of course there were people who bought off the registry so they were a surprise.

Peek? Um, I live on my registry like Stammie16! It’s not a surprise- I picked out and registered for these gifts! It’s fun seeing what has been purchased, and doesn’t ruin it at all for me at the shower! I’m really bad with my facial expressions anyways so the lingerie shower was slightly awkward because I wasn’t able to rehearse a reaction to seeing some of the butt floss beforehand!! LOVED all the spicy thought that went into each and every one of those gifts all the same hehe. Also, we’ve been getting random wedding gifts a month early that aren’t related to any shower. Two vegetable bowls off our wedding registry? Yes, please okay sure!

Absolutely! Haha, I peek all the time. I also shop and add some more things. I’m worried I forgot something.
