serendipityz:  If the MOH’s are hosting the shower, they could suggest that each guest wrap up a pic or a screenshot of their chosen gift. You can still open up “gifts” at the shower, yet not have to transport them for Texas to NY.

We had an online registry only and were married interstate. Most guests bought off that for delivery to us a couple of weeks after the wedding, one had the gift delivered to her so she could give it at the wedding, and I think 3 or 4 bought non registry gifts to the wedding (of 65 guests). We left straight away for the honeymoon so couldn’t take anything back but split the boxed gifts among family who could travel back to where we lived with them as a cheaper delivery option! Most was cookware so it wasn’t too hard to transport. 

In terms of making a registry, we’re also downsizing in the next month to a smaller apartment so mainly upgraded items (pots and pans, sheets, towels, knives, cutlery, bakeware..). 

Our friends were very upfront about asking about gifts and as cash is the norm for them it wasn’t awkward to hint at that. Our family all bought from the registry.
