Hey ladies! Could really use some etiquette advice.
I had a shower on April 2, and am getting married May 14. I am just finishing up thank you notes now, and haven’t mailed any yet. A couple of guests have already sent wedding gifts in addition to shower gifts, and I was wondering if it is okay to thank them for both gifts in same note. What do you ladies think? I guess the other option would be to send one now, then wait a week and send the other? Or just send 2 at the same time?

I’m planning on sending separate thank you notes for the shower and wedding gifts. In your situation I’d send out the shower notes now since they’re done and then you can either send thank you’s as the gifts come in or as soon after the wedding as possible.

I plan on sending separate notes as well. I would send the shower notes now and then the wedding thank you’s as I recieve the gifts. I would hate for someone to come to the wedding feeling jaded because they sent me a gift weeks ago and did not recieve a thank you. That could just be me…

2 events, 2 gifts = 2 thank-you notes

Actually, it’s perfectly acceptable to combine early gifts with shower gifts in one thank you card. Just be sure to mention both so they know you got both and aren’t wondering.
Good luck! 🙂

Personally I think if a guest took the time and spent the money on 2 gifts for me, the least I could do is send them 2 seperate thank-you notes. I don’t think it matters if they are sent on the same day or a week apart, as long as you acknowledge both gifts seperately.
