yari thats hilarious!

noo! you should open your gift when it arrives unless someone tells you not to -- the reason being that most of the time when someone sends you a gift, they know when it's been delivered, so if too long goes by that they havent gotten a thank you note, they tend to get cranky about it. a friend of mine did that and her guests thought she was so rude (i was friends with several other guests who sent gifts and didnt get immediate thanks) -- turns out she just hadnt opened any of the boxes yet!

    i don't know - i just got a shower gift in the mail yesterday and we opened it. i guess you could either bring them to your shower to open with the rest of the gifts or hold to the side if the gift giver specially requests that ??

    alyssa you dodo dont open any gifts that arrive in the mail between now and your shower! its bad enough you already know what they are besides, you want people to take your pic opening the gift at the shower, so you can show the person who sent it! my friends who didnt make it to my shower saturday but sent gifts LOVED that i sent out a link to a photo album of me opening their gifts

      oh i am a stalker, but i wish i wasnt. my shower is 3 days away and the things i wanted most havent been bought
      i REALLY wanted this brown blanket, but no one is buying. also no one has bought any sheet sets, and WTF am i gonna do with the duvet and shams, with no matching sheets?

      see, that is another reason we didnt want to register, you pick a certain item, or quantity of something, and it doesnt get fulfilled, and then you are stuck withe the choices A) using the item in an incomplete way, B) returning the item and resenting the people who MADE you register, or C) having to spend your own money to purchase the missing pieces, but having to wait until after the wedding when you get $ and taking the chance of the items no longer being available, and end then end having to hassle around returning it after all

        really? i thought that only if someone asked us to wait to open something otherwise just open it when they came? i just got a box from Crate and Barrel and a box from Macy's - i am going to open them LOL especially since I am not 'supposed to know' anything about my shower except for the date i think it is weird to bring gifts with me - KWIM? also, i didn't get any emails / calls from anyone telling me to wait...
