What’s the etiquette around thanking the Bridesmaids after a fabulous shower they hosted for me? I told them no shower gift, so they didn’t give me a gift. Do I still need to send them Thank You cards? I already thanked them individually at the end of the shower and again, as a group, via email.
Thanks for help/suggestion on this. I don’t want to risk offending any of these girls by not following etiquette.

I would send them each a thank you card. I think that is always the nicest things to do.

You should absolutely send a thank you. If they hosted I am presuming they paid for the entire function so that certainly warrants a thank you note. I would also suggest sending a small gift as a thank you. Some nice bath soak or a bottle of wine etc…

A thank you card is really nice. If they live in town, you could take them out to lunch, too.

I definitely agree with the other bees. Thank you cards are simple, but it’s a big gesture. If you’re inspired, you can even make them yourself a la Mrs. Penguin.

I agree as well thank you cards are always a nice way to show your appreciation!

When in doubt I always send a card… who doesn’t love getting an actual physical thank you in the mail? I also gave my bridesmaids little cutesy jewelry stands from hobby lobby as a gift thanking them for throwing me the shower. Throwing the shower took a lot more time and effort than buying a gift did, so I was all about writing a personalized note.

I’d still send them a Thank You card. It’s a sweet gesture to recognize their hard work in planning a great shower.

Thank YOU Bees! This is super helpful! I am going to buy the BMs nicer Thank You cards than the ones I used for the guests. 🙂
