I received a thank you note for a wedding gift (wine glasses) from a friend...two weeks before her wedding! She and her FH have been living together for some time now and have all the basics they need, but of course registered for some beautiful silver, china and crystal. I was surprised they opened their gifts early and already started using them? . Is this typical? I'm certainly not upset or anything but was curious as I have not yet taken the plunge myself . Any thoughts?
