I would only write to brother #1.

You don’t thank someone for coming, only for gifts. Just write to Brother 1.

I don’t know what the official rules of etiquette are, but I would (and will myself) thank all guests for attending with a card or note. You’re grateful that your guests attended, and gifts are optional, so I think all attendees should get a formal thank you. I don’t buy the opinion that the reception itself is a “thank you”—it is a party that you’re hosting to mark a major occasion.

If the card wasa signed by both, both should be thanked. It’s for you to judge who is more likely to have contributed.

Hmmm if they didn’t live together, I wouldn’t thank brother 2. But since they do it might be awkward if only one of them receives a thank you.

If the card was only signed by 1, I would just write the thank you to him.
