a friend put together a bridal shower for me but then her plans fell through. my Future Sister-In-Law and SMIL had already bought a gift set for me. i know there are morepresents that will be givin to me at the wedding from them(FMIL told me so i could take them off the registry) so do i send them a card NOW for what i have received then another after the wedding or do i send them 1 card after the wedding for both sets of gifts? i know i have to send them each a card since it was a group thing but do i send our 2 cards or 4?

You get a gift, you send a card. It doesn’t matter if you’re expecting more gifts. I sent thank you cards to everyone that attended our shower and of course to everyone that attended our wedding. Some people got 2 and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Showing your appreciation is NEVER in bad taste.

Agree completely with @eebgniddew. Thank yous should be sent right after receiving a gift, even if that means multiple thank yous per person. Better to over appreciate than letting them think you don’t appreciate at all!

I actually got a gift after a shower (that my parents’ friends couldn’t attend) but before the wedding, and I honestly wasn’t sure if it was a wedding gift or a shower gift. So I sent a card thanking them for the gift, saying I missed them at the shower and was excited to see them at the wedding. Then when the wedding came and I didn’t get another gift from them, I figured their original gift was a wedding present and not a shower present, so I sent them a wedding photo thank you card, thanking them for attending the wedding and also mentioning the gift they had sent earlier. I think it’s better to err on the side of caution if you’re not sure.
