I loved stalking our registry when we were engaged, haha.  I was bad though, and I specifically looked at what was being purchased.

I understand how you feel – I felt completely overwhelmed and appreciative of how many people bought us things.  We are still grateful!

Have fun at your shower tomorrow! 🙂

I just registered yesterday and already stalk it like crazy, not that anyone has bought anything off of it yet lol.

I haven’t registered on that website, but I think you might run into the issue of some people not wanting to purchase things online. A lot of people prefer not to because they don’t trust their information being online, and it’s not a site that most people have heard of. They are probably going with BB&B to be safe and I think because you have an older crowd that a bunch of them might not be that comfortable with the internet as well.

Either way, super exciting that your bridal shower is so close. Have a great time!

I am a registry stalker too…and I never thought I would be!  I wanted to be suprised at my bridal shower and registry gifts, but now I can’t help myself from looking!

The other thing that I like to check on though (excuses excuses) is that I find a lot of things becoming dicontinued due to being seasonal items or no longer being available online.  I like to make sure that I have back up items if possible!

It’s good to stalk a little!  You want to make sure you aren’t running out of items on your registry or making sure there are still things available at certain prices (not just the really expensive things or whatever).  Plus, I have noticed the discontinued thing come up as well too!

I am a stalker- that is why I did more than one- since we are using a non-traditional one (www.uponourstar.com) it i harder to stalk, so I also set up a couple ones for the completion discounts too- so fun!

I check on mine just to keep track of things that go out of stock or get discontinued. Okay, maybe not *just* for those reasons, but that’s part of it. 🙂

Darling Husband made me promise NOT to look at our registries.  It drove me crazy.  I wanted to keep them updated, etc – but since I promised, I couldn’t look (he didn’t like me knowing what present was the box that arrived).  Stupidest promise I ever made!! 🙂
