That’s kind of tough. I probably just wouldn’t do anything. Likely if they returned the gifts then they will be put back onto your registry. If they forgot the gifts they will probably be found and given to you. Or maybe they are giving the other gifts on the receipt to you for the wedding.

Could it be that the other things need to be shipped and will arrive soon?  When I bought my friend a shower gift, I went to Bed Bath and Beyond thinking that I could just pick up anything off her registry.  Turns out what I wanted to get her wasn’t in stock, so I had to give her a card at the shower telling her that my gift would arrive shortly!

Yeah, I’m thinking that they might be giving you those gifts as a wedding present and wanted to make sure that their “theme” was fulfilled, so the got the gifts early? I wouldn’t put them back on your registry again.

I think what happened was whoever coordinated ended up also buying your wedding gifts at the same time.  You can have an online or even a store registry purchase split up so one ships, and you walk out with the other portion.  I’ve done it before, just for this reason–one gift for the shower, one as a wedding gift.
