FI and I have been registered for a little while now and we've received some gifts already (that we have packed away at my parents house until after the wedding.) Most of the gifts that we've received were from the engagement party that my parents had for us this summer and I know that technically we could use them since they aren't wedding gifts, but I'd rather save them anyway.
Since we registered a little early, some of the items have been discontinued but before they were gone, we purchased them ourselves with our own $.
Am I "allowed" to use these things before the wedding since we bought them ourselves?
Can I ask for things off of the registry for Christmas? if yes, can I use them right away or do I have to wait?
