yes, andd alot of guests go off registry too! Or you have a target registry, and they track nothing properly! Prepare to be surprised!

Yes, I would wait a day or two before I went to get anything.

It’s waaaay to early for most people to have purchased gifts for your shower.  Stop registry stalking and let yourself be surprised by what you get at the shower!

Totally normal.  Most people don’t get gifts for the shower until a few days before or even the day of.

I registry stalked (and regretted afterwards)…most of the gifts purchased early on were purchased by people who also went to my cousins’ shower (two weeks before mine and we were both registered at BBB).   The 3-4 days before my shower my registry was hit hard. 

If i could do it over again, I would never look at my registry…I haven’t looked at it since b/c I don’t want to ruin the fun of opening wedding presents.

Um… don’t stalk your registry, that’s all I can say.

I’m way last minute as in I may just pick it up on the way to the shower. Not always, but I admit I’ve done it.

@out4answers:  I do that with RSVPs too…but, i’m learning a lot of people do it the opposite.  I would just sit back and look forward to your shower, and not worry about the rest.
