In that case I would send a heartfelt, wordy and thoughtful email to everyone. Be very sincere and thankful. If I was a recipient, I would understand you not writing individual ones.

In my place of work, we usually get a communal thank you card from the newlyweds. I’ve never heard anyone complaining about that.

@arf149:  I got something like this at my “work” bridal shower, and this is what I did:

I got two cards – one came with an AMEX gift card and those who signed that card pooled together for the AMEX gift card. I got another signed card as well from those who did not contribute.

What I did was bake a couple loaves of banana bread and brought them into the office as well as some candy. I set them out and BCC’ed everyone who chipped in for the AMEX card that I thanked them all for the lovely gift, and as a token, I made banana bread so hurry up to the break room before it’s gone. About 15-20 minutes later, I sent a BCC email to the non-gift group informing them of the banana bread – that way the gift group got dibs on the bread. Also, at my company, it’s not on the company dollar, people actually chip in themselves. I had to work quick b/c a few people who didn’t even know my name were helping themselves to it as would be expected. :/

@arf149:  Yes, I would send a group email. I would also try to find out who organized the gift and send that person a personal email or note.
