I had my bridal shower yesterday and want to get started on the thank you cards. The majority of the guests were relatives of my fiance. He calls them Aunt Janet, Grandma Jones, etc. My question is: how should I address the cards to his family? Should I write Aunt Janet or just say Janet? I typically call his family members by their first names, but I don’t want to come off as cold or rude in the card. Any advice?

I usually address thank yous by the person’s formal name on the envelope, and whatever name I call them on the card. So, I would say “Janet” on the card. I don’t think it’s rude at all. For wedding thank yous, I would probably address them as “Aunt Janet” because they’re from your husband, too, but this is really just from you.

I agree completely. I wouldn’t feel that it was rude to have just my name written in the card with no title (like “Aunt”). It would feel completely natural 🙂 So if you also call them “Grandma Jones” I think you should feel free to write that even if they are not technically your grandma by marriage yet.
