We are about 2.5 months out from the wedding and I’ve been updating the registry frequently. And I’ve predominantly been doing this by watching The Food Network all day every day and seeing something that one of the chefs uses and saying, “I WANT TO ADD THAT TO THE REGISTRY!”
I also asked for some advice from other married couples and upon their recommendation, I added a couple extra sets of sheets and a blanket, since we plan to keep our current bed for a guest room and buy a new bed after the wedding.
I don’t have any idea when the shower is, but three items have been purchased off our registry and I’M FRIGGIN PSYCHED.
But it’s not really the “stuff” that has me so excited. It’s the fact that we could have a wish list a mile long, but if people didn’t care about us or want to contribute to our new life together, it wouldn’t mean anything. We’re so lucky to have people in our lives who want to buy us a hand mixer, a panini press and some nice utensils for our kitchen. I’m just so exciteeeeeed!!!

I registry stalked SO much leading up to my wedding. Iphone apps for the stores we registred at made it fun and easy too. It’s amazing the amount of cool stuff we have now 🙂

@csteen85: Are you having a surprise shower?
I tried to registry stalk but apparently my entire family and future family to be is made up of procrastinators because they only bought 4-5 days before the shower! LOL

Fun! I am totally going to be a registry stalker too.
I was really surprised to receive a VERY nice gift in the mail the other day from a colleague who is not invited to the wedding. I work with her some, but not a ton – she’s an executive at our company. I don’t even know how she found out about the wedding.
It really was an awesome feeling that she went so out of her way to show she was thinking of us. What a nice, nice thing to do. I was blown away. I can’t imagine how it will feel once we actually get to the showers and wedding. I really don’t care about gifts, but you’re right, the feeling of knowing people are thinking of you is so nice.

Yes! I am! I do not know when the shower is, but all I know is that invitations have not gone out yet, but we’ve already started seeing some gifts purchased. I’m sending the Wedding invitations out this Saturday (so excited!) and they have our wedding website URL printed on them, so I’m expecting more people will go to our website/check out the registry after that.
It’s just so exciting!!!!
