I say do the shower, and I would think most guests would bring a gift to your at home reception (unless they traveled to the destination wedding).  I had a destination wedding and was even living with my now-husband for 2 years by our wedding date, but I still had a shower and I registered for some upgrades and did honeyfund.com for the shower.  We did not have a reception once back home, but some people that didn’t make it still sent us a wedding gift! 

If someone is coming to a party though, I would think most people would bring a gift.  There’s always a few that don’t though, so I wouldn’t plan on getting a certain dollar amount from it.

If your Maid/Matron of Honor wants to throw you a shower, do it 🙂 they are fun and people who can’t afford to go to the wedding, still want to congratulate you 🙂
