My bridal shower is in 2 weeks and some early gifts have arrived (although I’m going to hold off and open them at the shower). I was wondering about thank-you cards, though – we are not having a co-ed shower, but the gifts will probably be from our registry. Should the thank-you cards be just from me or from Fiance and me?

Unless they are address to both of you, shower thank yous will be from the bride.

My sister did them from herself but made sure to say “Mister and I will enjoy using the platter” or something “we” in there, just signing her own name.

I wrote my name and my fiance’s name as he attended the shower with me and when looking up registries it’s in both of our names.

I would think if the gifts are for both of you to use, that you would send them from both of you?

If the shower was just for you (i.e. he did not attend or help open gifts) then you should send them from just you.

@LadyBear: I *think* I said from both of us. If I recall correctly, most of the cards were to both of us (he was not present at the shower) and they were gifts that both of us were going to use eventually anyway.

I’d sign them from both, unless it’s a personal/lingerie shower (in which case it would be for both anyway, but you specifically).
Shower gifts are given to the couple, and his presence or absence has nothing to do with it.

I’m using my shower as an opportunity to use up the rest of my personalized (maiden name) stationary! Typically, if just you attend, the notes are just from you.

I signed both of our names to all of our thank you cards, even though Fiance did not go to my shower. I would rather err on the side of him thanking his relatives than insulting them.

I plan on writing thank yous w/ fiance. I keep reminding him it’s our wedding, not MY wedding. The shower gifts are for the both of us as well, so both of us should participate in thanking each person.

All of our shower TY’s were just from me. While the gifts were for him too, it was MY shower. Unless you’re having a co-ed shower, I’d say just sign the TY’s from you. Another thought would be to reference the card that came with the gift and go from there. If it was made out to both of you, it wouldn’t hurt to sign his name.

They were written “from” me, but I made sure to mention how much we would both enjoy using the gift.
