Yes, you can mention it in their wedding card.

I too was confused by some gifts that arrived around the same time as my shower or engagement. Were they wedding gifts, shower gifts or engagement gifts? I had no clue.

I second the “mention it in your wedding card” 🙂

PS – the best cards that we received had messages, stories and notes in them… not just names.

Just mention it in the wedding card.  Or you could get a small complimentary gift to bring to the wedding if you really didn’t want to show up empty handed.  Like if it was a mixer, a cookbook.  Then write in the front of it congrats and hope you’re able to use this and the mixer to cook for your family for years to come. 

I wouldn’t think anyone would send me a shower gift who wasn’t invited to it, but I guess some people think that highly of themselves.  🙂

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with mentioning the gift in your card 🙂

I would put the note in the card– sometimes it’s hard to tell with the gifts that arrive early; give her the benefit of the doubt, and politely mention that it was meant as a wedding gift.  If she isn’t graceful enough to accept the gift as it was intended, that’s her problem– not yours.
