    Do you include your husband on cards for showers?

    Advertisements
    Assuming it's a bridal or baby shower with only women being invited, do you write out the card from you and your husband or just you? My guess is that it's just fine to go by the name(s) on the shower invitation. It feels kind of odd to not include my husband but maybe it's odd to put him on there when it's a woman thing. I don't know

    I know it's not a big deal, I'm just curious.

    I have never been to a Bridal shower, but on any card I say Smith family if I sign it.

    Other. If its someone from DH's family, or a friend of his from before we were married, I'll put his name on it. But if not I just put mine. For example, I went to a baby shower of a friend of mine from high school. Since she doesn't really know DH, I put only my name on it. When I went to a baby shower for DH's friend from college, I put both of our names on there.
    I've never been to a bridal shower, but I'd probably do the same thing.

    Are you asking if the note that comes with the gift should have just your name or both names? For the shower, unless we were both invited, I'd put only my name. For a wedding gift, it would be both names.

    If he's not invited, no.

    It's not even really intentional but I've gotten into the habit of signing cards from both of us whenever I give someone a card / gift. I don't think it's a big deal .

    So... the poll is kind of dumb. I should have included an option about if he was invited to the shower.

    If he isn't invited, then I wouldn't sign his name unless maybe it was a couple we were both very close to. Like if we had a best fried couple (lol we don't) who were having a baby but the shower was women only, I might sign his name.
