Ok just want to make sure I won’t anger my closest gal friends.
My bridal shower was the day before my wedding, since most of my friends were from out of town. Two of my mom’s friends were there too, and they each wrote a check for the shower and the wedding.
My friends gave me a joint gift (a really thoughtful recipe book), and one of them gave me a separate gift as well.
Now that it’s about a week after my wedding, I’m planning on combining thank you cards. They would literally get two separate cards in the mail at the same time. I’m all for etiquette, but I think sending out 2 sep cards in this scenario would just be flat-out impractical…thoughts?

A joint gift seems like it would be fine to give a joint thank you.
But seperate gifts should receive seperate thank yous.

I think in your case, it’s perfectly fine to combine the thank you cards. If you sent two of them at the same time, they may think it was a bit silly to waste the card and postage. I know I would!

Agree with PP. Joint gift, join thank you card. Separate gifts, separate thank you cards. I would write out the thank yous for the shower and send those immediately since that event was first. Then you can send out the thank yous for the wedding so they will be spaced out.

I think it’s fine in this case. It would be just be a complete waste of paper, money, and stamps to mail two thank yous.
