I have a strange situation… my bridal shower was last weekend and I’m working on my thank you notes. My aunt gave us an awesome food processor. Obviously I’m going to write her a thank you note for it.
She also mentioned a long time ago that she wanted to help us out with the wedding and was planning on giving us a large check. She pulled me aside at the shower and said she still wanted to do that as our wedding gift. She sent the check and I just got it today.
Do I send her separate thank you’s for the shower and the wedding gift? They are both so generous, so I don’t want to discount them by combining them into one thank you card. But sending two seems silly. Do I mention the check in the bridal shower thank you, and then send another thank you card after the wedding?
What would you do?

kb7: I would send 1 card and tell her how you and your FI appreciate the gifts etc…

Are you planning on sending two separate thank you notes to other people who give you a gift for both your shower and your wedding? If so, I’d do that for her. If not I think it would be nice to send her just one note, but with a small gift, perhaps a photo, to really show how grateful you are 🙂

I would send one thank you note acknowledging both gifts and let her know how much you are looking forward to celebrating with her at the wedding.

I’d probably send one now about both gifts, and then follow up after the wedding with another saying how much her contribution meant to you and how special you felt on your day. Then it’s two notes, but it isn’t quite as awkward as sending two notes now.
I don’t think you need to do this for everyone, but because of the nature of the gift, it seems a good compromise.

I decided I’ll mention it in the shower thank you and then will send another thank you after the wedding letting her know specifically what we spent it on. Flowers, ceremony musician, etc.
