Really strange question for you… how long before your shower did people start buying gifts from the registry?? My shower is next weekend, and my Maid/Matron of Honor made a comment to me today that only 2 gifts have been purchased off my registry, and there are 52 people confirmed attending. Is this normal?

The day before. Don’t worry about it.

lots of people go the day before or the day of. people are very last minute.

for what it’s worth, sometimes people will either skip a registry or look at the registry then shop elsewhere for the same/similiar product due to price.
I wouldn’t worry about it. Registries are optional and, for some people, aren’t “traditional”. (I heard A LOT about this from my own parents for my brother’s and cousin’s weddings. *rolls eyes*)
also, a lot of people who have state jobs (at least here in VA) get paid on the 16th, so they might be waiting to get paid. Others get paid on either Thursdays or Fridays (Wal-Mart, I know, pays on Thursdays…).

My shower is Sunday and only 1 gift has been purchased!
So… I don’t know what to say except that I guess I am having a lingerie shower or people like last minute shopping.

Most people bought things the day of the shower!
