Thank you so much for your gift. And if you can manage enough individual ideas, “I will use it to ___”. Don’t comment on the amount, just how happy you are to receive it/how generous the person giving it is.

Hi! My couples shower (which happened in April) was a very similar situation. Everyone brought cards with the cash, and we opened them later – after everyone had gone. No one missed the “traditional” gift opening either, as we just made sure the shower was more of a party, with lots of food and drink! I would ask your friends to make sure this is the case. The worst thing in the world would be for eveyone to sit around in a circle watching you open cards with money inside, in my opinion! Plus it would be embarrassing for everyone (those who give only a little, and even those who give a lot) because money is such a sensitive situation!

Just keep in mind that a “shower” doesn’t have to mean gift opening is included!
