Almost everyone I know shops the morning of the shower.  Seriously.

Yeah, I think most people will buy gifts in the week before the shower. I didn’t have a shower, but that’s the way it worked for our wedding registry.

Within 2 weeks from my shower is when I started seeing things being bought from our registry. For a lot of people they wait until that week to buy a gift.

People do wait until the last minute. I would not worry. I’m sure you will have a lovely shower and get your registry picks.

A lot of the time they forget to take the paper and give it to the cashier to check out or they buy it like an hour or two before your shower.

My shower is the sunday after thanksgiving. I fully expect every single person on the invite list to shop the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving, if not the morning of the shower. lol.

Don’t worry about this AT ALL.  Even the day before my shower only like 5 things had been purchased.

For my first shower (which is the only one I have had so far), I checked the registry the day before the shower and no one had bought anything. Then at the shower, almost everything (and there was ALOT) I received was off the registry. So, from my experience, they really do go the morning of the shower.

I think this scares all of us when the time rolls around. But from what I’ve heard, most of your gifts will be purchased week-of. I know I always buy presents off the registry within a few days of shower. So don’t panic yet. 🙂
