    @Elvis: Are you invited to the ceremony? Have they already sent out an invitation for the reception?

    I started getting gifts the day the Save the Date went out. And another bunch when the invitations went out.

    @Elvis: If you are invited to the ceremony, then I’d say gift now, especially if they have a registry.

    You could also compromise and do a little something now, and a little something later.

    I’d say bring the gift to the reception, as that’s normally when guests give the gifts when the ceremony and reception are in the same day.

    Since you are invited to the ceremony, I’d get a gift now.  If you were only invited to the reception later on, I’d get it then.
