All I can find online are for the ones you want to mail.
Basically I’m going to a wedding and I got them a gift as well as a card (no $ inside) and I was planning on taping the card to the box so they’d know who bought the gift based on my signature inside the card..so how do I sign the outside of the envelope? Do I put 1)Mr. and Mrs. Blank 2) Mr. HisFirstname Blank and Mrs. HerFirstname Blank ? Is it rude to assume she is taking his name? Do I not need to put their name at all since its obvious who the gift is for? Am I not supposed to tape the card to the gift? Help! This is the 1st wedding I’ve had to buy a gift for!D:

Tape the card to the gift and if you aren’t sure about the name thing, just put
“To the New Mr. & Mrs.” or “To the Newlyweds”

and you would sign the inside of the card. they would see the card taped to the gift (yes, tape it, otherwise it just gets lost) and open the card to see it was from you.

@mwitter80: Ah thank you! 🙂 I could not for the life of me think of what to do.

One more hint- whenever giving a gift, always put a little card INSIDE the box so if the greeting card gets separated from the gift, the receiver will know who gave the gift.

just curious – is there a reason you’re not mailing it? it can be a pain for the newlyweds to have to worry about getting the gifts home from the wedding, especially if it’s more than just cards.

You can also just write “Jen and John” on the envelope. And I agree with the above poster – make sure you put your name inside the box as well, since cards can get easily separated from gifts.

@kitzy: I actually never thought to mail it. Whenever I went to weddings as a kid my parents always brought them…hmm. Honestly, I also have no clue where they live – I’m just going as my friends (the grooms sister) “date”. Lol can you tell I’ve never done this before? XD

@julies1949: Alternatively, you can mention the gift in the card. “I hope this blender brings you many tasty meals in your new life together.”

If you haven’t gotten it already, I’d just buy it online and ship it to their home. The online registries will have the address saved for you. (Some even include free shipping or gift wrapping.) That way you don’t need to worry about bringing to the wedding, and they don’t have to worry about taking it home from the wedding. 🙂
I think etiquette technically states that you’re not supposed to bring the gift to the wedding… (I read lots of books when I was my sister’s MOH. 😉 )
