Hi, bees! I’m in the process of writing my thank you cards for my bridal shower right now, and as I’m doing this I realized there may have been a better way of organizing things while opening gifts. So I just wanted to share, in case it could help anyone else! Maybe this is basic knowledge, but I didn’t think about it until now.
I would recommend that for each gift you open, have your BM/helper write the gift in the CARD itself. Then also put any gift receipts in the card, so everything is together. This way, the gifts don’t have to be organized in a certain way. Keeping the gift receipts with the card makes them easier to find, and thus easier to return if needed. If someone didn’t include a card (which is rare, at least for me), then you could still write their name and gift on a list.
As you write thank you’s, you can just open the card and know exactly what that person got you. It would be ideal to identify whether you want to return something as you’re going through the thank-you process, so you could just set aside the gift and gift receipt at that point.
Maybe others prefer the list only, and that’s working for me fine right now. But I think I’m going to do things the way I described for the wedding gift opening. Hope this helps someone! 🙂
