- Wedding: December 2012
Hello Bees… I hope everyone had a great holiday!
I got married almost a month ago and we had a destination-no kids allowed wedding. The hubby and I have decided to send thank you cards to all who attended, even if they did not give us a card or gift. We are not doing this to expect gifts or guilt them into sending one, just thanking them for traveling and being part of our special day. I initially order a set of cards with the followng wording…”We are both so thankful that you were able to take part in our wedding celebration.” to sent to those who attended. We recently started receiving wedding gifts (I didn’t have a shower) from those who did not attend. So I ordered another set of cards with six different pictures highlighting the key moments of our wedding to send out.
Over Christmas my SIL, who couldn’t make it to the wedding because of the kids, told me our wedding gift was in the mail. Here is where my question/diemma comes up. I initially was going to send a thank you card to my brother for attending, although I wasn’t sure how to word it without making my SIL feel excluded. Now that I know there is a gift coming, should I just sent one card to both of them or two separate cards, one for my brother who attended and then one to both of them for the gift when it arrives? If I were to send out two cards I would send them out at the same time so they both receive them.
Thanks for your help and sorry for the long post.
