Have shower invitations been sent?  Are they discontinuing the dishes? 

I wouldn’t call people though (I’m hoping this was a joke!)

@hartmamp:  Haha….I know how you’re feeling. I was just looking at my Macy’s registry and saw alot of items on sale too. I wouldn’t call people but if you’re really wanting it, maybe you can buy it yourself and take that item off the registry?n

So, here’s the thing, who CAN you call?  For my bro and his wife, I told them straight up to let me know if they ever noticed anything.  Then *I* would email people that were appropriate.  I’d send something to my cousins, for example, that would say “hey, I was just stalking my lil’ bro’s registery and there is a wicked sale on XX, in case you were looking for something to get them still.”  Note: I wouldn’t email the whole guest list or anything, just the people I talk to regularly and who I deemed appropriate.  Our family is totally down with saving money, so everyone appreciated the heads up, whether or not they went that route.  Not for everyone, I know.

@hartmamp:  I’ve alerted my mom to sales on my registry items. she’s then spread the wrod as if she saw it all on her own. or went and bought the stuff her self. she told me point blank to let her know, because I’ll get more from her if she buys it on a killer sale..  LOL!

Because we registered on the early side, a lot of our stuff has been on sale at C&B (since it’s seasonal), and Macy’s. We’ve had to go through and take things off or pick new designs.

@gelaine22:  +1. 🙂

@hartmamp:  Now I am curious as to which pattern you chose! I LOVE China.  If I could, I would buy an entire NEW set, even though I have tons of beautiful dishes already, LOL.

Haha.. mine are on huge sale at Macy’s, too! (The Rachel Bilson Peacock ones) My mom called the other day and started off the conversation with “Heh heh… soo… you know how I can’t turn down a great deal….” She went ahead and bought ALL our place settings because they were buy one, get one free! She’s nuts – but I thanked her over and over again for the generous gift. I told her not to get us a wedding gift because all of her work, conversations with me about planning, not to mention they money they’re shelling out for the wedding is PLENTY. But the woman can’t turn down a good deal when she sees one… So, our first wedding gift should be arriving in the mail any day now!
