mrsmeyers84:  You are best to send separate cards for shower gifts and wedding gifts. Get the ones for last week’s shower out this week and do the same next week. It’s best to have the shower thank-you’s done and sent before the wedding.

Also send thank-you cards for wedding gifts as you receive them. If people send you a gift before the wedding, it’s reassuring for them to know it arrived safely.

after my shower, I just did a speach. Thanks everyone.. Didn’t send cards. Sent cards after the wedding though! No one found it disrespectful.

Nikkimcq:  Polite people would never call out your rudeness.  So their not saying anything does not mean they were not offended/put off.

I had a shower on the 30th, and am aiming to have my Thank You cards sent by the end of the week.

I have another one coming up at the end of the month, and will also have those sent within 2 weeks after it. The wedding is 3 weeks after that, so no problem getting them out before.

Yes – separate ones are required.

mrsmeyers84:  I wrote thank yous as I received gifts. This meant that yes, I wrote one for each shower gift and will write one for each wedding gift. Try to do them as they come because they sure do pile up fast!

Separate events/gifts = separate thank yous.

mrsmeyers84:  each event gets their own thank you card
