I just got my first wedding gift from my ffil. I got a set of stainless steel pots. I didn’t register for pots so it’s a nice (Happy) surprise that he got me this. He gave it to me today and told me to use it when my family comes (we don’t have a lot of pots LOL). So I get to use my new pots right away YAY.

We got $1000 before the wedding! That was combined from people who either couldn’t come to the wedding or just wanted to send the card instead of bringing it to the wedding.

my fmil has been buying things here and there off our registry list. she gave me a set of mixing bowls and a cheese slicer last week (i think they were going to be christmas presents but she couldn’t wait to give them to me, she’s so sweet!)

The week leading up to our wedding we had about 5 things deliver to our house from the registry. I’m not going to lie, my favorites were a tie between the Bissel Steam and Sweep that we had registered for and a keurig 🙂
We also got a few cards from guests that couldn’t attend, a new fancy toaster, and a few other smaller items

@mrs_brownie: Haha, my Future Mother-In-Law has been buying off of our registry, too. When we saw her a few weeks ago, she was like, “I thought you had pillows on your registry?” ARGH WHAT? Apparently she went and printed off our registry lmao. My Target app keeps track of how many items have been purchased (as does their regular site), which means she’s already bought a travel casserole set, mixing bowls, and a bread loaf pan that I registered us for. No idea when we’ll get them, but that’s neither here nor there.

We’re not getting married for another 20 months but we got some nice engagement gifts. An iron, picture frames, coffee pot, knife block set, blanket, set of pyrex dishes, flatware set, crystal candle sticks, vase, money, an ihome, pots & pans, etc. we’ve been lucky.

I got another gift yesterday but cannot unwrap it until after the wedding (boo) so don’t know what it is yet. She kind of hinted and since I know what I registered for I have an idea and i am excited. Although she told me what she wanted to get me instead and the store was out (apparently they never updated my registry list of all the sold out items so now I have to go back in and do that UGH!)
