Etiquette Bees, help me out!
So I know for showers, the bride is the one who received the gift, therefore the bride signs the cards but I’m in a conundrum about 2 gifts I received at my shower which were from guests invited to the wedding but NOT to the shower (they arrived via other people — one a friend of my parents, one my brother’s in-laws). Should this be signed by both of us or just from me? I’m not sure if they were intended as their wedding gifts or shower gifts so I’m kind of lost…

If the people who brought them did not specify, and it is not obvious by the choice of gift (ie, lingerie for you VS something off your registry), then I would just treat it as a general wedding gift and sign from both of you if it is something for you both to use. If it’s a thank you from both of you then you’re “covered” either way.

@classyashley: Either way you shouldn’t ever sign someone else’s name.
Since they were delivered via the shower, I would treat them as shower gifts.

I agree with @waitingwonderland. I think that you and FI can write the thank you together, and that way, incase it was intended as a wedding gift, they wont wonder.
