you want to spend X amount for the shower and and X amount for the wedding, you already know this.  spend that amount.  what they choose to do with the gifts is their business.

My husband’s best friend and his fiance did this when they registered for gifts.  Sooo annoying.  They were at like 3 stores with HUNDREDS of random, repeated items on each registry.  We ended up buying them gifts from their registries for both the shower and the wedding, but I know they returned them.  I don’t really care though.  If they want to deal with the hassle of returning items they didn’t really want, why not register for what they really wanted in the first place?  I don’t get it.  PS – they did they same thing when they registered for their baby a few months ago.  Blah.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  We got plenty of cards filled with cash for our wedding, but there were plenty of gifts too.  I’ve never been to a wedding were there weren’t tangible gifts in addition to monetary gifts.  I would spend $50ish on a shower gift and about $100+ on a wedding gift, depending on the type of wedding and how well you know the couple.  My rule of thumb is to try and give a gift that will cover the cost of how much the couple paid for us to attend.  That is usually somewhere between $100-$200 depending on the venue, etc.
