I posted the other day about writing thank you notes to the people who gave us gifts (both material and monetary) at our engagement party. A few people had suggested that we thank people who gave us $ and GCs to the places we registered, and say that we used/are going to use it for_______ off of the registry.
Does this mean that with some of the $ and GCs we received, that we should be going out to the places we registered and purchasing items from our registry? We plan on saving the majority of the cash but we could purchase some of the seasonal items that may be out of stock soon, off of our registry. (For example: there are some mixing bowls at C&B that are a " spring 2011" item and won't be available for much longer.)
I know that we cannot use any of the items that we do receive until after the wedding so even if we purchase something, we won't use it until another year from now.
I really dont know what to do. I'd love to get a few of our registry items that might not be available next year but I want to do the right thing with the gifts that people have given us.
