- Wedding: August 2009 - Eastside Catholic Chapel and Lake Union Cafe
My bridal shower is 6 days before our wedding and I’m trying to decided if I need to send two thank you cards out. Usually I would, but I know I won’t get to either thank you card until after we get back from the honeymoon. That could mean 2 thank you cards written on the same day to quite a few people.
Mr. Joey suggested only sending 2 think you cards if the bridal shower gift didn’t come from the registry and it was something just for me.
What do you ladies think? 1 card, 2 cards no matter what, 2 card depending on the gift?

Ooh, that’s a tough one. I know it’s not the most "proper," but I’d do what Mr. Joey suggests. I think people won’t really think badly of you for getting one thank you card for two gifts. 😉

I’d do two. Just work on all the shower cards first and send them out. Then get started on the wedding TYs. Then they’ll be a few days or a week apart.

I would totally do both thank you’s in one card. I’m pretty sure you won’t have anyone complaining to you for not thanking them enough and if they do then poo on them! Shoot, everyone knows times are tough, so it would also help to save on stamps. 🙂

If I were the gift giver in this case I wouldn’t expect 2 cards. Just acknowledge each gift in your thank you note of course. In the only a gift to you scenario write "I thank you for the lovely shower gift……" and "Mr. Joey and I thank you for the lovely wedding gift…"

I think because the two events are so close together, you can get away with doing just one thank you note, mentioning both gifts. I know I wouldn’t be offended at all.

I would say you’re probably safe to just do everything as one card, and just remember to thank people for both gifts! =)

I agree that you should just send one card and mention both gifts. I personally wouldn’t mind that one bit… I don’t think it’s necessary to send 2 cards if they’re going to arrive on or around the same day!

I would definitely do only one card. If you send a card for a shower gift after they have also send a wedding gift, and do not mention the wedding gift, the giver might think you never got the wedding gift. You need to thank them for both gifts, but it can go into one card.

I’d say 2 cards. After all, they did go out and buy 2 gifts. Since the shower is smaller, it should take less time. All my shower thank yous were done the next day!

I’m sending two cards for my shower and wedding gifts, but my shower is two months before the wedding. Since your events are so close together, I think the formality of two thank you cards are not necessary.
