We were about 30/70 on gifts sent before the wedding versus brought to the reception.  We didn’t receive any gifts after the wedding (besides my aunt who left it on the kitchen counter and had to mail it to us afterwards).

@LindaD76: I hardly ever see any gifts at the wedding becuase many ladies bring gifts to the shower. Cards are mainly given at the wedding/reception.

Traditional etiquette says not to bring presents to the reception, but to send them to the couple’s home, so that the couple will not have to figure out how to get a bunch of presents home at the end of the reception.  However, a whole lot of people are unaware of this point of etiquette, so you need to figure something out anyway.
