The registry wasn’t set-up, or put on the website, until the shower invitations were mailed. We included the cards that Bed, Bath and Beyond give you to hand out, int he shower invitations. Items started to be bought within a week, of the guests receiving the shower invitations. There was very little left on the registries after the shower and gift cards were used to purchase whatever else was needed. I think the regitry was taken down way before the wedding. Everyone gives wedding gifts in envelopes, in our social circles.

Ours got bought probably 2 weeks before the wedding, a lot of guest also bought our gifts the day before. Then again only a few of our guest got us things from the registry. Alot gave us money or just went and bought whatever… LOL and we were okay with that.

We have 28 days to go and the gifts are rolling in! I didn’t think much about the registries until the gifts started arriving, mostly because I did the registries so long ago, and pretty much forgot about them. But we added a few more more things this past weekend, mostly small stuff like can openers and tupperware. The gifts started rolling in with about 3 months to go. The best gift we have received (besides cold hard cash) was a crimson storage bench from our BB&B registry. I never saw it before I put it on the registry but I saw it on the website and thought it looked nice. It arrived just a few days ago and I love it- it’s GORGEOUS and we can keep the linens in it – really nice AND functional. I love it.
The only thing is we registered for a french country style dining set for 8 and only one thing has been bought out of the set, a sugar dish. So maybe that registry will get more traffic as the wedding approaches. Otherwise I might as well return the sugar dish, and try again if we have a housewarming one day.
