 My name is Sarah and I was a registry stalker (and still am even though my wedding is over!)  I completely understand 🙂  However, STOP looking at your registry from now until after your shower! Please!  My friend made me stop one week before my shower and Im so glad that I did.  A lot of the gifts were bought the day before or the day of and since I stopped looking I was genuinely surprised by the gifts.  I promise you will enjoy it so much more if you can not look at your registry for just 6 more days!  Then look at it all you want after 🙂

I’m afraid I’m stalking too.  Things won’t be bought off of it for my shower so at least I don’t have to feign surprise.  I should still cut myself off though!

I know what you mean, sometimes I would be alone at work all day with nothing to do so I would check it literally 3-4 times a day.  Im surprised I lasted a whole week without looking at it.  I even had them bookmarked.  When you want to look, tell yourself not to and try to do something else instead.  Have a great shower Saturday!

i looked right up until the day before the shower, but a TON of stuff was bought day of so i was still surprised!  also, a lot of people bought off registry which made for some really awesome, unique gifts!

Haha, I stalked, but didn’t realize the shower was SO soon — because we received mostly gift cards from the mister’s family, so the registries didn’t look like too much had been purchased (because it wasn’t!).

I PLAN to stalk so I know what is left in-stock/in-season so I can update as needed. I don’t think it will deter from any surprises. I always like to add a little extra something in gifts I give others… like a bottle of wine with wine glasses or dry ingredients with cookie cutters… I think it will be fun to see if others do this too!

I just registered last week. I’m thinking I will have a rough time NOT stalking… but I won’t feel as guilty if I know that I’m not the only one. Why didn’t someone tell me registering would be so much fun?!?!

(And no arguments with the Mister!) Success!

I’ve become a stalker. We actually were shipped some of our china yesterday and it’s broken into tiny pieces 🙁 My shower is next weekend and things are starting to come off the list. Lots of our guests have sent us gifts since receiving invites and STD congratulating us in advance…and we’re VERY tempted to start using the news gifts…but are still holding back.

I absolutely stalk…and I’m glad I do!   My shower is in two weeks, and sometimes watching a bride open gifts is so boring!   I’m hoping that if I know what is coming in advance, I’ll have something to *say* about the gifts.   Because let’s be honest, they aren’t all that exciting sometimes.  (ooh…water glasses)   I’m hoping that I’ll be able to say something to spice it up a bit!

I definitely was a registry stalker. I found that it was not hard to act surprised because I didn’t know who bought each item, so there is a small element of surprise left.

I was a registry stalker too, and I remember about a week before my last shower I was shocked that nothing new was purchased.  Then I got REALLY busy and couldn’t stalk, and I was surprised and thrilled!!  Definitely give yourself a week buffer where you can.
