I’ve found it actually depends on where you live and what’s the norm in your circle of family and friends.

We give gifts for both, but use the registry for shower gifts and give cash at the wedding.

@ItWasntMe: Yup, this exactly

In my circle of friends, it`s usually gifts from your registry that you receive for you bridal shower, then cash-gifts on your wedding day.

agree with all the PPs above – our circle does registry gifts for the shower and cash for the wedding.

Where I live you usually buy gifts for both.

The gift for the bridal shower depends on if there is a theme or not. It is usually a less expensive gift. It is also common to invite people who are not invited to the weding- colleagues, club members, church members, neighbours etc to the showers.

I have never given cash for a wedding gift.

My family and circle usually do the same as many said above. A gift from the registry for the shower and cash at the wedding.
