Combining Thank you Cards?

Natalie, on May 19, 2021 at 12:45 Posted in Just married 0 4

I was supposed to get married on 04/3/2021 and had my bridal showers about 2 weeks before that date, I planned on getting thank you notes out for the bridal shower before the wedding, however my husband fell before our wedding and was in the ICU with a brain bleed so we had to reschedule the wedding. We were lucky enough to have it two weeks later on April 24th by some miracle. But with taking care of my husband, working, cancelling and rescheduling a wedding I never got around to getting those thank you cards out.

Now that we got married a couple weeks ago I am working on thank you notes for the wedding I was wondering if it would be ok to thank them for the shower gifts and the wedding gifts in one card and write a little sorry for the delay kind of deal in there. All of our friends and family know the situation that occurred so I didn't know if that would be ok.

I feel like it is weird to send two thank you cards at the same time but I also know it can look cheap or odd to do both thank yous in one card so i am torn

    Its great news to hear your husband has recovered and doing well now. The Thank you card can be done for 2 occasions as you didn't have a chance to get another for the shower. It may not be proper etiquette way to do it though you know its past the date to get it out. Its the circumstances to understand and make as one thankful moment.

    Normally I would say always two cards but with so much going on I don't think anyone would be offended at all. If you didn't get around to it or just didn't bother thats one thing but honestly what you had going on is enough for anyone. I am very glad that your husband is doing well and all the best to you both.

    I'm glad your husband recovered and I hope he's doing well now.
    I've received thank you cards six months or more after the fact so I don't think it's necessary to explain or apologize on the card. It's not too late, in my opinion, especially since most people know what was going on. I think one card is fine, especially if you're personalizing the message on each one.

    I don' t think it looks cheap to say thank you for two different occasions by using one card. I am sure if they are good enough friends and family, they would understand the circumstances surrounding the issue on why you couldn't get the other ones sent before hand.

    With that being said, if you feel the need to explain; there is nothing wrong with adding a side note about the bridal shower or not necessarily a card, but a note added on a nice piece of paper or something like that added into their envelope of those who joined the shower.
