So, my shower is next weekend and the wedding is in 6 weeks and there have only been 4 things purchased off both my registries 🙁 I am feeling kinda down about this–not sure why but it just makes me feel like people dont care? Yes i know im bad for snooping, but you know youve done it!
Did you girls have this issue also?

Honestly I think people are just putting off shopping. Any wedding or shower I’ve ever attended I’ve bought the gift like a day beforehand.

I snooped before my first shower (my “small” shower) and at the verrrrry end people started ordering a few things. I am also getting anxiety over my registry…but hopefully we keep getting things (invites for shower 2 go out this next week and I’ve got 2 months till the big day)…
I think people are just last minute and also keep in mind some people (especially older people) will probably get you things that ARN’T on your registry…this happened to me but luckily I liked most of it…and the stuff I didn’t I exchanged hehe

in my experience most people don’t go to get gifts off the registry until like 3 days before the party. don’t worry!

A lot of people purchase right before the shower. Don’t worry about it!

I wouldn’t worry about it, I often only shop within a few days of an event, and occasionally I will pick something up the day of the shower/wedding …
I am planning on not looking at the registry for 2 weeks before the shower, and having someone like my mom check it before the wedding in case we run out of stuff. Watching the registry will make you crazy!!

Thanks ladies, that is good to hear. I am a “do-er” and i seriously get gifts weeks in advance when I know a specific event is coming up. My Maid/Matron of Honor said not many people have rsvp’d to the shower and the rsvp date for that is on the 29th, so idk, im just nervous that itll be like 5 people, when i invited 20 lol. I just want it to be special, its MY day, and it will be my only shower, so it means a lot to me.

people will not buy gifts until like, two days before. seriously. Sometimes the morning of. I’m totally guilty of picking up a gift ON MY WAY to the event.
