I would group them with my shower thank yous, if they were invited to the shower.

@CityBearBride:  I would assume they’re shower gifts, but it really doesn’t matter — you don’t have to mention “wedding gift” or “shower gift” in the thank you, you just say thanks for the super awesome blender/toaster/iron/etc. and elaborate on how much it will change your life. 🙂

Do you mean signing it with you and FI’s name or using stationary with your names (like a monogram)?  Because I’ve heard etiquette wise you shouldn’t use your monogram until you’re OFFICIALLY married, but think it would be fine to sign off “CBB and FI” on the cards, because even tho he isn’t involved in the shower (is he?, just assuming) it’s for you TWO’S life together.

You don’t have to put.. Thank you for my shower gift.  You can go with .. Fiance & I are so appreciative of your lovely Toaster Oven…. etc. 

I didn’t write thank you for my shower gift of a toaster oven… or thank you for my wedding gift of a toaster oven at all.

@CityBearBride:  Similar situation here. Some female relatives of mine went in on a big, expensive gift together and are sending it to the house. They also bought me several smaller, less expensive items. The shower is in 2 weeks, and I feel like an ass because I don’t know what to open, which gift(s) are for when, etc. I think I’m just gonna open it all at the shower (unless someone objects) and send notes saying “Thank you for the mixer/vacuum/plates/whatever” and not mention the word wedding or shower. lol.

We received a few wedding and bridal shower gifts from people who would be attending both and we didn’t know what gift went to which occasion. I had my BM’s inquire for me.

I had special bridal shower thank yous made, which are different from our wedding thank yous, and have only my name on it.
