So I peek at my registry every day or two. I just looked at it today and two of the guests coming to my Bridal Shower next week bought me the same gift! I only asked for one in the registry. Its a bedding set and I assume they will both be bringing it to the Bridal Shower. My registry is at Macys and I don’t understand how they both bought it since once its been bought it says “fullfilled”
Anyway now I don’t know what to do. It shows they both bought it but technically I am not supposed to know that. I just know because I check the thank you card manager thing. Should I say something to either of them in advance or just act surprised at the shower and deal with it there? I don’t either of them to feel bad, I am sure they did not mean to buy the same gift.
What should I do??

Honestly I would wait until the actual party, who knows it might be just a glitch on Macy’s website. Also a lot of stores do let you return or exchange things. I really wouldn’t worry about it.

Maybe you could have a bridesmaid or Maid/Matron of Honor be “over” the registry to make sure that doesn’t happen…. and they could talk to the guests that bought the same gift?…
not real sure what the etiquette is on this one though

I wouldn’t say anything, you will probably get more duplicates, especially at the wedding. Sometimes people miss-read registries and sometimes systems can get backed up, not showing a purchased status for a while. And then, there is a slight possibility that when they checked the registry and 0 had been actually been bought. Calling them would make is obvious you have been checking your gifts and they might get the wrong idea. Just exchange it later.

In the days before online registries, you didn’t have the added stress of knowing about this situation ahead of time. It still could be a mistake.
Just wait till the shower. If they did indeed buy the same bedding set twice, I am quite sure that as soon as the first one is opened , the giver of the second one will likely approach your Maid/Matron of Honor and have the second gift pulled to the side. She will also likely offer to return it and purchase something else off your registry or let you do it.
Just be grateful and gracious. These things happen. Compliment them both on their excellent taste.

Yeah, I think you should just play dumb. It’ll sort itself out at the shower.

I would wait until the party and be surprised. They will probably jump in and return it for you you.
I’m registered at Macy’s too. I have a few double wedding presents shipped to me. I think it could be that they ordered online at the same time. Macy’s does not stop you fom purchasing if it says “fulfilled” it just shows the quanitites. So that could be just an oversight on the part of guests rushing to make a purchase.
The good thing is Macy’s allows you to exchange as much of your wedding presents as you want and they will give you store credit too.

We got two of the same item from our registry as well. Most guests included a receipt with the gift, so I could return it if I wanted to.

Hopefully even if they forget the receipt Macy’s should return it. Isn’t it kinda Macy’s fault for selling two and you only asked for one? Ughh I haven’t started a list yet and need to get started.
