I was bad and kept checking ours too. No one got anything from our until just a few days before the wedding.

@rachelmarie220: Don’t worry too much about it – almost everyone shops last minute for gifts! I worked at a high-end retail store throughout high school and everyone shopped late… whether it is for a baby shower or a wedding, it was often left until the day before the event!

Your wedding is May 7th? Did you let everyone know about the registry? You may just be getting money, instead of gifts. Also, if it’s a target registry, I know those can have some glitches updating…

I think most people are guilty of checking on their registries to see what’s being bought…we had a few early purchases from ours, and then a lot more right before our shower and the wedding. There was a lot of “down time” though when nothing was purchased.
In the next week you’ll probably see a lot more activity!

Hmm..my bridal shower invites went out last week, and I’ve been naughty and checking every other day…
I would think you’re probably going to get lots of money and gift cards 🙂 Orrr…they could all be slacking…

OMG I am so glad I’m not the only one. People know about it via our website, but not a thing has been purchased at 2.5 weeks to go. I did the same, took all the shower stuff off, so now it looks even more pathetic. I do think most folks if they’re getting us a gift are going the cash route based on a couple early ones we’ve received….

@rachelmarie220: I’m so happy that I am not the only one! There has only been one purchase off all three of our registries. At the same time, I usually wait until about a week before a wedding to buy a gift for someone elses wedding…

@Heatherloveskenny: Haha that’s what I’m using as justification! I never buy anything until like the day before the wedding…

We didn’t have any purchases until the week of the Shower. Nothing since then either.

We had a bunch of things that posted the day of our engagement party. Then nothing. As everyone seems to shop practically day of, I think your registry will go faster than you realize!
Did you get shower gifts off the registry?

The items we’ve gotten so far were shipped directly to us from people who can’t come to the wedding.
One of my mom’s friends told her she didn’t want to wait and be stuck with the leftovers 🙂
I’ve noticed most people don’t shop until the day before for the most part 🙂
