Many years ago I read in a Dear Abby article that according to etiquette, if you bring a gift to the shower, you are not obligated to bring a gift to the wedding. I always give both, but I’m sure I read that. Was it ever correct etiquette or did I imagine it?

Yes you give both. Generally the shower gift is less expensive and smaller. I generally budget 20-25% for shower and 70-80% for wedding gift.
