    I was very appreciative of items off our registry and/or gift cards to places where we were registered.

    Also, please for the love of all humanity include a gift receipt even if it’s off the registry!!!!!!!! We changed our minds about a few items when we took into consideration having to move out of the house for 6 months while we renovate and didn’t want things to get broken moving in and out. When I took them back to the store to return them without the gift receipts they wanted to give me $5 for a $30 set of wine glasses and $80 for a $160 stock pot. Ummm no. I’d rather put them in storage or figure out an alternate plan than do that!

    My first bridal shower was actually Saturday, so this is all fresh in my mind!

    I recieved about $110 in cash, and about 60% things on my registry, 40% random things (but useful things!) and no gift cards at all.

    We had about 40 people in attendance.

    Some people really like giving more personal items for a shower–“shower” to some people traditionally means strictly household items. So linens, towels, pots and pans etc. If that stuff is not on your registry already, I might add it.

    Personally, I’d love to receive cold, hard cash, but I’d never request that!

    We got a ton of gift cards for my bridal shower.

    Personally, I prefer registry gifts or gift cards to the places we’re registered.

    At my shower the hosts had the guests contribute whatever they wanted and then they bought some of the big ticket items off our registry.  It was great b/c I don’t think we would have gotten them otherwise!!! 🙂

    My shower’s not until next year, but I’m hoping to create a small registry of household items we’d really like to have for guests to choose from.  I’ll try to keep everything well under $50, otherwise I feel bad!

    I got gifts off the registry, a few gift cards to where we registered, and a few gifts not on the registry. The problem with that was that one of them was a 24 piece pyrex set which we have no room for and cannot return anywhere because nowhere sells it!

    I asked my mother and Mother-In-Law to tell people to get me something off the registry. I made sure to tell them that I do not want any lingerie from anyone. I’m a pretty shy person and that would just be embarrassing to me. But I’m open to things off the registry too like cash or gift cards.
