Random question, but I wanted to know what other people thought.
I had a shower last weekend, and another one coming up this weekend. If I know for a fact they are coming to the wedding, should I write a thank you card now for the shower gift and another if they bring a gift/money to the wedding? Or do I wait until after the wedding and write one for everything?

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.

Thanks for the advice! I said thank you to everyone at the shower as I was opening the gifts, but I want to do more to show my appreciation.
I have to wait until I go to my parents house this weekend, my mom says she already has some thank you cards so I want to see how many she has before I go and get more.

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.
