    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!

    @eebgniddew: Agree.

    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.
