@Sparkle030:  I just went to a wedding in April and a lot of people brought wrapped gifts (probably 20-30 of them!). I still don’t think it’s common though.

We got a few wrapped presents at the wedding & bbq the day before, and some are still being mailed.

We recieved quite a few registry gifts at the wedding but the majority were sent to our home.  DH’s family basically bought all the remaining items so we were fortunate. 🙂

We got about half and half.  Half from our registry and half were cards with cash/checks/gift cards.  However, if you only have 9 things left I might consider adding a few more items to your registry.  We had more than 9 things left and people were still complaining that we didn’t have many options on our registry.  So if there is anything you can think of to add to it…I definitely would!  Also, most people won’t buy the present until the week off (of after the wedding…we got probably 10 gifts in the mail a week or so later).  Congrats on only 1 month left!!!  That’s so exciting! 🙂

We had about 200 people at our wedding and did a registry and we received probably 25ish gifts, the rest were cards and money!

A few brought gifts directly to the wedding; several brought them to parent’s houses at brunch/rehearsal dinners.

Lots of things were purchased in the last 2 days to the day after.

Our wedding was destination so we only got cards at the actual wedding but we received many gifts off the registry that were delivered to our place.

We got more gifts than cards.  And a lot of people sent stuff off the registries around the wedding time (week of and after)

We got an equal amount gifts and cards at the actual wedding. Probably 10-ish gifts and 15-ish cards. Oh, and we got more gifts at the showers and cards in the mail, though we did get gifts in the mail as well. That was just our general breakdown. 🙂

@Sparkle030:  I have nothing to add except to say “Date Twin!!”  How excited are you?  This month is going to fly by!
