    I think china is more of a wedding gift.  Shower gifts are usually less expensive things in my mind.

    I’ve given china at a shower, but it was a less expensive piece (the salt and pepper shakers). IMO, a place setting is a never fail wedding gift.

    how do people know what china you are registered for though if it isn’t given in the information for the shower invites? i’m confused!

    how do just random wedding guests know where to get it if they never received any registry info through a shower invite?

    I like more personal gifts for the shower.

    In the circle of people I know… most tend to give actual gifts at the shower, and a monetary gift for the wedding.  My friend just went to a bridal shower this weekend, where the mom and sister of the bride pitched in to buy her entire china set.  Either way, I’d be thrilled to get a place setting of our china! 🙂

    I think China to be more wedding than shower but maybe i have this all wrong… i always thought the shower gift should be something personal for the bride like lingerie or something

    Def more memorable as a wedding gift.  Plus, I feel that for the bridal shower it should be smaller gifts on the registry or more personal ones, like robes, massage oils, lingerie, etc.

    iunderstan hatu mean by personal= bacholorette but i personally have never met a bride that does bridal shower and bachelorette and expects gifts at both… bridal showers to me have always been personal and they give you a chance to invitepeople you wouldn’thave at  bachelorette part. (i.e. great-great grandma or the pastors wife)
