I think cards are always nice. I custom ordered some from VistaPrint for cheap and they said “from soon-to-be-mrs” and then my new last name.

Yes, send them before the wedding. asap

If the gift is from the couple (ie i had a few gifts from Mr. and Mrs. X), respond to the couple. Typically a shower gift is from just the woman, so that is appropriate to address to just the lady.

Sign them as yourself, unelss the gift was to you and your Fiance (some of our gifts were to both of us). Typically a bridal shower gift is to the bride.

I used a combination of personalized cards that I had on hand and some store-bought “Thank You” cards for mine.  I think the stationary is not nearly as important as actually writing them though.  And I would sign them just from yourself, but maybe throw in a “FI and I plan on using”  Or “FI and I absolutely love the …”  so they know you both appreciate the gift.  I addressed them to just the person at the shower.  And yes, get them out before the wedding if it’s possible!

Good luck!

A simple card is perfectly fine- it’s the written note that counts!

You are supposed to send thank yous ASAP!  Definitely before the wedding (after which you’ll probably have a second round of thank yous to write!).

I addressed the thank you to the people that were on the card.  If it just said “Love, Aunt Sally” I thanked Aunt Sally.  If it said, “Love, Jackie and John” I thanked both.

I also signed the thank you based on how the gift card was signed- some people wrote the card, “Dear Rosy and FI” and I would sign my name and have him sign his.  If it was just a card to me, I just signed myself.

I think the only impolite thing to do is send some kind of typed form letter and just signing your name.  The thank you is supposed to be hand written and personalized somehow (like you mentioned- how the gift will be used).
