I recently had an amazing bridal shower and am being held up with sending out my bridal shower Thank You’s. Most all of the cards I received with my gifts only had the females name, who attended. My fiance told me for his aunt and uncle I have to put both their names on the Thank You (they bought us our very expensive pots & pans) there were only 2 people who wrote their name and their significant others and/or kids names.
What is etiquitte here? Only the ladies names?? That is what I am leaning towards aside from the 2 who listed numerous people on the card and his aunt & uncle. Also, my FI’s stepfather was at the shower takign photo’s do I include both his mother and stepfathe on the Thank You? (His mom and sister hosted the shower for me).
Please help me!

I only wrote the woman’s name on my shower thank yous. I figured the men weren’t invited so they didn’t get a thank you (even though the money is probably joint).
I would send a thank you to your FI’s stepfather. But maybe send him a seperate one?

I agree, send it to the names of those who attended (or sent a gift) only.

I sent it out to the person who gave the gift. But occasionally if I was close with the husband/fiance too and their name was on the card then I put a little PS at the bottom ” PS tell Joe I said hi and thank you! =)” . I am not sure about the etiquette of this but I went ahead and did it anyway since they were on the card.

Good question! (I’m just about to go start my first round of thank-you’s!)
thanks, everyone! 🙂
