    People do both. The shower is specifically for gifts, so people definitely use registries for the shower, but many people buy wedding gifts from it too. Usually, physical wedding gifts are mailed to the registrant’s home. A few a brought to the wedding and those are usually taken home for the couple by a loving family member or bridal party member.

    I guess technically both, but I think of it more for the shower.

    I registered for the shower but was told to also register for the wedding (I will just leave the registry I already had for the shower until after the wedding, I won’t do another registry).

    I’d say it’s for both. I probably got just as many wrapped gifts at my wedding as I did at my shower.

    I’ve always bought registry gifts for the shower and given cash or a gift card for the reception. I think giving physical gifts for the reception is getting less popular.

    I usually order something off the registry for the wedding, but if the couple has an online registry, I order the gift online and have it shipped to their house. I always try to order the gift a few weeks in advance so it arrives at their house before the wedding, and also so it doesn’t get there while they’re on their honeymoon (in case a thief were to steal the package off their doorstep while they’re gone! haha). I am very uncomfortable giving cash or gift cards, I would only do that if it seemed like that was what the couple preferred.

    Both. A majority of the gifts on our registry were purchased for my bridal shower, but we did also receive a handful of gifts at our wedding. Most people gave envelopes, but I think some people think it’s a bit impersonal and just prefer to give a physical gift instead. My parents just took them back to their house until we returned from our honeymoon. 🙂

    I’ve always thought it was for both, but I’m beginning to realize more people are bringing more personal (read: non-household) items for showers.

    Registries are used for both.  I’ve definitely bought couples things from their registry for the wedding.

    I say shower. I feel like most of my family and friends give a monetary gift for the wedding. While gifts aren’t a no-no, a lot just prefer to give money. That’s just the way it is in our circle. It differs everywhere though.

    It’s used for both!  =)  My cousin had a cardbox where we stuck a card in with money but they also ended up with an entire gift table full of wonderful things!  Pretty sure those were bought from the registry =)
