Q: Is it appropriate to bring gifts to the reception?

A: Not really. Gifts are supposed to be shipped to the return address on the invitation or to the address listed on your registry, but some guests will bring them to the wedding anyway. Be prepared by designating a table in a secure area—not near the entrance—and nominate a responsible attendant with a car to take them home at the end of the night.
