Bridal Shower opening gifts etiquette

Are you suppose to thank the gift giver right after opening their gift? Or is o.k. to do it when sending out thank you cards.

Hey, here is a couple of sites that can help you with this :-) nothing wrong with telling all the guests as a group thank you . i do not think it is proper to name the person who gave you the gift at that particular moment though. maybe you can mention you love the "toaster" (an example) in the actual note you mail out. http://loveandweddings.blogspot.com/2013/04/bridal-shower-thank-you-note-wording.html http://www.ehow.com/about_6611829_bridal-shower-thank-card-etiquette.html

After I opened all my gifts, I did a "speech" and thanked them all for coming and for all the gifts, and etc. :)

I would send out seperate thank you notes. Most people attending a shower will also attend a wedding and give gifts for both.

I don't know why, but for some reason the gift-opening at both my showers was the most awkward, uncomfortable thing in the world for me!! I was just handed a ton of presents, you'd think I'd be like a kid on Xmas right?? I was so shy...which for me is doubly hilarious :)

I would look at the card first and announce who the gift was from, then open it and thank the person who gave it to me in kind of a general way since I was sitting up in front of everyone. And then I wrote individual, more personal thank-yous after.

HTH!
