Advice on gift list!

For those of you that are married now.. Can you tell me when if was that people started buying things? I'm not sure if people just haven't got there yet, but its 2 months til the wedding and noone has bought anything. Is this normal?

    My gift list at John Lewis doesn't even open till 6 weeks before the wedding! I think people usually start to buy things a week or 2 before the wedding - it probably hasn't even occured to them yet to get something image Some may even buy things afterwards! xx

    The majority of people bought from our list the week up to the wedding image

    We had some people who gave us money with their RSVP, but most people just brought stuff on the day. We didn't have a gift list, but if it was me, I probably wouldn't look at it until at least a month before the wedding.

    Think about when people get paid too, people will probably start buying things at the start of the month.

    Mixture between those who bought the day it opened and last-minute week before. A few in between but not many!

    The week before! Although we had a money list for our honeymoon and lots of people didnt get it so we just got the money on the day! image

    Hardly anyone buys anything until a week or maybe two days before the wedding. You know, when you're so busy with other stuff that you haven't time to look.
