They probably are intending on gifting it to you at either A) your shower or B) your wedding. That’s a very early shopper though! I have to imagine that person gets all of their Christmas shopping done in July as well. 😉

Ya you’ll probably get it FOR your wedding… maybe this is the type of guest who likes to bring the gift to the wedding.

Sometimes, yes.  Other people are often more organized than my little old self.  Family friends bought a place setting as soon as they rec’d their invite and brought it to the wedding, for example.  

Depending on the item, sometimes they are on back order and take FOREVER *sigh*.

You can also call the registry and ask about it.  My brother had to do that with a few things that were purchased awhile before the wedding but didn’t show up at the event. There were explanations for everything except a vegetable peeler, haha.

I agree with the previous posters. It was probably on sale or your guest just thought it was the perfect thing she wanted to get for you and snatched it up before anyone else could. And now she’s waiting until your shower or wedding to give it to you.

I had some early birds too.  A cutlery set was bought about 3 months ago…I figured it was for the shower, but never got it.  Figure someone had a coupon and shopped early and we’ll get it for the wedding.  My biggest fear is a shower curtain that was purchased, but not given to me at the shower.  I got all my other coordinating bath stuff from my aunt and cousins, minus the shower curtain which was purchased at the same time (i’m a crazy registry stalker too).  Now the shower curtain is discontinued, so i’m hoping I get it at the wedding.  Or they could be like my mom, who forgot some presents she bought for my cousin and gave them to her a few months after the wedding.

They’re probably just holding off on giving it to you until your shower or your wedding.  I was also a registry stalker, and noticed just before our shower that someone had purchased the knife set that was the absolute one thing that Darling Husband wanted off of the registry.  It didn’t show up at the shower, so I figured somebody had got both the shower gift and the wedding gift at the same time to save themselves a shopping trip… except it didn’t show up at the wedding either.  I had one friend cancel last minute for the wedding, so I figured it was from her, but I couldn’t actually ask, you know?  Thank God she brought it up herself a couple of weeks later, because I was seriously going to get Darling Husband his knife set myself otherwise!

They may have got it on sale, or even recieved it as a gift themselves but decided to regift it if they have one.  If it were 6 months after your wedding I would be questioning the store to see if they didn’t contact you!

Same thing happened to me and it was my Maid/Matron of Honor who bought it and brought it to the shower.

We’ve had some stuff bought that we didn’t recieve yet either.  I thought we’d get it at the shower but not yet.  So I think that it may be a gift from someone out of state who didn’t attend the shower or someone is holding it for the wedding 🙂

I agree probably bringing it to shower or actual wedding – or waiting until closer to send it, so it will be a wedding gift and not an engagement gift.

I noticed the other day some things have been bought off my registry (didn’t even know my registry was int he public domain yet!) – 1 gift was sent to me as an engagement gift, haven’t gotten the others. My shower is in October (wedding March) but shower invites haven’t gone out yet – I just assume they are waiting until then though.
