*UPDATE: I meant things that will be used for your wedding/honeymoon. Not items off of your registry.*
The Christmas before our wedding was awesome! We scored lots of great things, both wedding related and not. My favorite wedding related item was definitely the Swarovski earrings from my parents for my bridal attire. When I opened them my mom kept repeating “Don’t feel obligated! Don’t feel obligated!” but I absolutely love them! They looked a little ridiculous with my sweatsuit and slept in ponytail but all done up in wedding garb, they’ll be gorgeous!
FI’s parents (and my aunt and uncle) got us luggage for our honeymoon. We ended up returning the set from my Aunt and Uncle since we don’t really need 9 pieces of HUGE luggage. Apparently trying to find pink luggage was no easy feat but my FIL’s managed to find a set. You can’t really tell by the picture, but my set is fuchsia and I absolutely love it! Each set came with the large rolling suitcase and a smaller carry on rolling suitcase. They did a great job!
The DIY Bride book (again from my parents). There are 40 DIY wedding projects in here. A number of them aren’t really my style but I plan to attempt about a dozen of them.
I also got a few more wedding related books and some gift cards to put towards wedding stuff.
Did anyone else score some wedding related swag for Christmas?

My parents got us a food processor, the Martha Stewart 2 level cupcake carrier, some basic kitchen utensils and then both of our parents got us the serving and hostess sets for our silverware. I just returned one of the sets and bought 4 of our silverware place settings thanks to Macy’s bogo sale on silverware and a $25 off coupon. Oh and his sister got us a saucepot.
@rachaelrobin: a wok thats awesome!! I need to register for one of those

I was hoping we would get a few registry items for Christmas, but we didn’t. We did get 2 things there were similar to stuff on our registry, which made me wonder why they didn’t get the actual stuff. Our wedding is in 5 months and we still haven’t gotten 1 registry gift!

I meant more along the lines of things to be used for the actual wedding/honeymoon but everyones gifts sound great.
@mwitter80: Um, who was this directed towards?

@UpstateCait: LOL when I read this “FI’s parents (and my aunt and uncle)” I thought his parents were your aunt and uncle. I have now re-read and I am cracking up. I’m so sorry hahaha. You should have seen my face the first time I read it.
