I believe most people say you’re suppose to take them to the shower and open them there with everything else. I opened them at my house 🙂

If transportation is an issue, I’d say open them and send out the thank you notes ASAP.  At the shower, if the givers attend, you might want to start off the opening with, “And a big thank you to Mr and Mrs Brown for the pots and pans! Since I couldn’t bring them here today, I opened them and they are lovely!”

@MrsBroccoli:  I think this sounds good!

It might be nice to maybe bring pictures of you and your Fiance with the gifts, too? you could put it on the gift table at the shower, or maybe have a little booklet or something, so other guests can ooh and aaah over those gifts as well.
