I stalked until the day before the shower!

I was still surprised b/c I didn’t know who got what gift.  I was also surprised because we got a LOT of wonderful gifts that weren’t on our registry!

Hi, my name is sweetkate and I am a stalker. I look at my registry every. single. day. Sometimes more than once. It’s gotten worse now that my wedding is less than 2 weeks away. I looked at it before my shower but I was still able to act suprised when I opened gifts. =)

I peeked until like 4 days beforehand…I was still really surprised at gifts AND a lot of people bought unique non-registry gifts that I utimately really loved too!

I have a feeling I’ll be a stalker. I’m not having a shower until October, but I have a feeling I’ll start peeking at them in a few weeks…even though I feel like I shouldn’t! But as others mentioned – it isn’t like I’ll know who gave me which gifts, so I’ll still be surprised, right? 😉

We haven’t registered yet, but I definitely have been registry stalking other people’s registries! For one, it gives me good ideas on what we want. It also is fun to giggle at some of the silly things people register for, namely useless kitchen tools- special avacado cutters, vegetable specific things, etc. Smile Never underestimate the power of good knives. Another thing that it helps with is getting an idea on is what people register for vs. what people buy for them. I know a lot can be couple/guest list specific, but it sort of averages out.

Er I just peeked again and more stuff has been bought since my shower.  It’s so fun but I think I need an intervention!

I’m sure I’ll be a stalker!! But you shouldn’t be surprised, people these days are procrastinators (me) and will buy the gift the day of (before the party) or better yet, if not a lot of things are bought it could mean your getting MONEY instead!

Ugh! I stalked my registry, got excited about gifts I thought I would receive at my shower, and then didn’t get until after the wedding. It was kind of a letdown. There was some rumor that someone told guests of my shower that the gifts should be linens-related (a tradition? it wasn’t the theme). We didn’t register for any linens, only towels b/c we couldn’t agree on any sheet sets or whatever. So, I ended up getting a bunch of “unique” table linens some of which I like and others that I don’t. Also, no one got us any of our china b/c it was on backorder, which I somehow didn’t realize in all of my stalking.

GaBGal –I wish you came to my shower. I love those little extras that make the gift stand out. I do that, too. Unfortunately no one at my shower did.

Wow, I sound really ungrateful –I’m really not!

I’m not a stalker yet…but when it gets to be shower and wedding time? I can’t imagine I’ll be strong enough to stay away! Considering i’m on WB hours every day…yeah.

I looked at my registry right before my shower.  Then I was surprised when some of the things weren’t at the shower (who bought these other things?)

So I’ve heard that there is a way to find out who bought what off your registry?  Anyone know how?

Oh I totally did that for my engagement party! But I told my mother. And she spilled the beans to her friend. And some people were upset I found out prior to the party. So if you are going to do it, don’t tell anyone!

Hahaha! We’ve just recently started planning our wedding and we’re pre-registry shopping already! We’ve gone into a few stores and started picking stuff out, even though our estimated wedding date isn’t until Sept. 2010! Am I the only one?!?! I just love those little laser tag guns!

I stalked mine, but we made it because we had to have something else registered for the shower.  I was still excited to get it at the shower, though.  You don’t have to act surprised, just as long as they can see you’re happy about the gift.  Hahahahaha.  Stalker.  That’s funny.  Ahem!
