@MrsGatito:  I’d send the shower one right away and then send the wedding one with the rest.

@MrsGatito:  If I were you I’d just send 1 card mentioning both gifts: “Dear Jim and Jane, Thank you so much for the wedding present, and Jane, thank you especialliy for the shower gift.” Not verbatim, but something like that. 🙂 

Sending 2 cards just seems kind of clunky to me, and overly laborious for all involved. Especially since you only got the shower gift 1 week before the wedding, I don’t think it’s weird at all.

@MrsGatito:  p.s. I wouldn’t apologize about being late, either… I really don’t think you are late at all.

Ditto what stillme said. No one expects immediate TYs for gifts a week or two before the wedding. Why are you waiting to mail them all at once? Keep a log if you have to (makes it easier!), but I’d send them as you go- nice to get them out the door!
