I would change it now if I were you.  If only one person has bought it and you know you want to exchange it, then I would do it now so you only have to exchange one gift rather than several.

It depends. I did this because I ended up somehow accidentally requesting the wrong color of plates that I wanted! I just waited until after the shower, then returned them to the store to get in store credit and switched the dinnerware out. That way I wouldn’t end up with half brown, half ivory plates at the shower and have people be wondering what was going on. But one place setting isn’t really much (we had already had 5 place setting bought when I noticed), so I don’t see what the big deal would be to switch now and at the shower you could just explain to the one person and let them know you just returned it and used the credit to get a place setting in the new dinnerware you chose.

I would just exchange them afterwards. Less confusion and hassle with other people.

I just wouldn’t say anything about it at all.  Unless of course you think that they will be over at your home enough to notice that you don’t have the plates you bought.  In that case, after the shower I would simply tell them that it was a mistake in the registry and so you are going to be exchanging for the plates you really wanted.

I would exchange them after the shower.  I know I would feel awkward if I was the only person at the shower had brought the “wrong” plates.  Not that I think it’s rude to exchange them and then explain, I just feel like it would be a little… weird.
