I recently ordered a bunch of luxe frost cards from Paper Source for thank you notes (we’ll dress them up with a punch I used on the invites), but now I have one of those only-a-bride-would-think-of-that worries… is it ok to use the same kind of stationery for shower gifts and wedding gifts? Like say my aunt gives me a shower gift, I send her a thank-you note, and then she gives me a wedding gift, and I send her another thank-you note, but on card that looks the same?
I know this is such a tiny detail, but I’m wondering what the other bees are doing! I think it might look kind of weird to obviously have this giant stash of cards that I’m using for everything… ah, bride brain.

I think I am going to use two different thank you cards. You could just dress them up differently. Use a different kind of punch for the shower and then use your invite punch for the wedding notes.

We are doing different thank you cards. Mostly because our wedding thank you cards will feature a picture of us in our wedding attire holding a sign that says “Thank You”, which obviously won’t be ready in time for our shower! They’ll be similar designs, though.

Ours will likely be different just because our wedding ones will not have arrived at that point in time and I think our wedding ones will be more plain with maybe a monogram or last initial while I anticipate shower ones to be girlier since it is female only.
However that raises another question, if it is a women only shower and Fiance is not there and say someone gifts me a blender, is it only me who sends the thank you or does Fiance sign/or I write Mr G and I are so excited to start making smoothies…?

I think people will just be grateful to get nice thank you notes… there will probably be a couple months in between the shower thank-yous and wedding thank-yous getting sent, so if you want to use the same ones, people won’t notice that much. You can always add something slightly different to each if you want.

I also used two different cards. I would feel funny sending the same card to someone twice.

I think I am planning on using 2 different types of cards. We designed some personal invitations that we have been using and it would be pretty obvious that we used the same picture for wedding thank yous.
I like the idea of having the photographer take a picture of the two of you that says “Thank You”

Thanks ladies. We’re sending notes as gifts come, so I don’t want to wait until after the wedding for photo cards (although I always like getting them— so cute). Maybe I’ll use a different stamp for the ones for the shower gifts.
@TobeMrsG— I believe that the bride writes the notes for gifts received at the shower, since technically she was the recipient. Although I doubt anyone would be offended by the fiance signing it 🙂
