- Wedding: August 2013
Ok so in my family, we don’t exchange cards. I actually can’t remember the last time I received a card for a birthday, christmas ect. Part of it is that we aren’t terribly religious, so we don’t acknowledge a lot of holidays. But in FI’s family, they send cards for everything. I got a card for christmas, valentines day, easter, my birthday ect. (from his parent’s not from this paticular cousin). Anyways, FI’s cousin just had a baby, and I would like to send them a card. I’ve met them a couple times, because I tend to attend the dessert part of Thanksgiving, and we’ve been together for 5 years. But I have no idea what to write in a card. Fiance doesn’t think its necessary, but I feel like having a baby deserves a card more than a lot of other events. I also know that we will be inviting the three of them to our wedding, which is in a little under a year and a half. Can I just say:
(baby’s mom’s name) and (baby’s dad’s name),
Congratulations on the birth of your daughter! I look forward to meeting her and seeing all three of you at the wedding next year.

Do I mention easter? The baby was born today, the whole thing has been all over facebook, and she doesn’t have a name yet. Should I wait until she has a name? Also I don’t know if I should include the wedding date since it is official now, and was not the last time we saw them.
