Okay, I’m confused. My shower is this Saturday. My Aunt is throwing it for me and while I didn’t see the shower invite, I heard it was in the shape of a wedding cake. Now, my wedding invitation collateral (std, invite, rsvp and thank you’s) all have the same look and feel which is nothing like the shower invite.
When I send my thank you notes for the shower, can I just use any kind of thank you note or does it have to resemble my wedding collateral?
Or does it even matter?

The Shower invites can be whatever you wnat. They do not have to match the wedding stationary….it’s a totally separate party. The same as your theme and colors for your showers usually aren’t anything like your Wedding.

i think it’s totally up to you!
FMIL ended up buying my shower cards for me that ironically ended up having the same color scheme (pink&brown) as the invites that i had made at work (yes i made my own shower invites, we have a pritning department at work that did 80 invites, recipe cards for $20 :))
but i also have green ty cards in case i need extras… id ont really care, as long as i get a ty card out to everyone 🙂

i just had my shower and sent thank you notes and my thank you notes weren’t even in the same color family as my other materials. i don’t think people will notice or care. have fun!

I agree. I designed my wedding invites in a bright, funky, striped mexican theme, and my mom’s shower invites were hilarious chili-pepper shaped “fiesta” theme.
For my Thank you notes, I just bought basic pink floral boxed thank you cards at Hallmark. I think the note inside is more important than the design outside, in this case. 🙂

i went to CVS and bought 3 boxes of cute generic thank you notes. no one will notice if they match or not!
