I would think that all the people who will be attending your shower will know your situation.

I have been to a shower where we were all asked to wrap up a picture of the gift we wanted to buy and include a gift card for the value of that item. That way the bride could buy the things herself and take them with her or leave them at her mom’s as she wished.

I had my shower this summer in New Orleans and I live in Michigan.  We told everyone to buy real gifts and the majority of people just did gift cards and said what they wanted to get.   I would hate to return everything and repurchase but that is always an option.  Be prepaired that you will also get stuff not on your bridal registry so you can’t return that.

I have yet to use any of my gifts though even though I thought I would.

I think having it all shipped to the house, and people bringing a wrapped picture of a great idea. Some people are going to ignore it and still bring the present, but it should still cut down on the pile of presents, and people can see the pictures and be thanked.
