So I've got three separate thoughts on wedding gifts, and I want to see if I'm alone on this stuff...
- Anyone else periodically checking their registries? I can't help it! We've got our first "shower" this weekend (visiting his parents in Alabama, and they're throwing us a party since so many of his relatives won't be coming to MD for the wedding). Then I have two showers in September (one thrown by my boss for co-workers, the other my "real" shower), and now that invites have gone out, I'm periodically checking them to see what's been purchased. I'm telling myself it's because I want to make sure there are enough things on there to go around (and that's part of it for sure), but it's also because I want to see what we're going to be getting - it doesn't ruin the surprise because we don't know who we're getting stuff from or when!
- It may be weird/in conflict with my last statement, but I have a lot of anxiety about gifts. I don't want people to spend a ton of money on presents - I had a hard time adding gifts over $50 or $60 to my registry... and the only thing over $100 is our luggage set. Anyone else?
- Does anyone else have people asking you if there's anything you really want from your registry? Fiance and I have been together 8 years, co-habitating for 6, we're in our early 30's and most of the stuff we've ever wanted we've gotten for ourselves. The truth is, while stuff is cool, there is nothing I'm dying to own.
