I just went to buy a shower gift off of someone’s registry. People definitely register for showers. I would register for anything you want, with loads of options, from $10 to $100. I was supremely annoyed by this girl’s registry because there was barely anything on it, and everything was $9.99, and I wanted to spend about 50. I felt weird buying 5 mis-matched things. So. My advice is to register for many things at different price points.

I just registered once before the shower  and most people got me gifts off of the registry for the shower and then a few people finished up the registry gifts for the wedding and the rest gave money.  I have never heard of anyone establishing a separate registry specifically for the shower.  The only difference might be that some people register for toasting flutes, cake knife and server in hopes that they will get it for their shower so they can use them at the wedding.

I’ve never heard of a “shower” registry per se.  Typically people have one set of registries that are for both showers and the wedding itself.  I’ve never seen them separated.

I’m putting everything on my wedding gift list at myregistry.com since my shower is going to be pretty small anyway and usually traditional gifts get passed down but I would recommend opening a separate registry just for the bridal shower. I wouldn’t focus on one store personally since if you did it’s the same as the wedding. I would think intimates or some nice cookware would be okay for a bridal shower. 🙂

Usually people just create “wedding” registries, and people will shop off that for the shower.

I have heard of themed showers (lingerie comes to mind) where guests don’t typically shop off the “wedding” registry, but I don’t think the bride actually goes to Vicky’s and registers for underwear or anything.

So yeah, I guess I’m in the “never heard of it” group.

agree with the other chicas. you just register once for your wedding in general. and then depending on how the gifting is handled for your showers, guests could be instructed to shop from them or not (i guess the ‘not’ would be if the party thrower was doign the lingerie shower thing, or some other creative idea).
