Bridal Shower Thank Yous

This may be a silly question, but I started to wonder when I received cards from family and friends with only the female attendee.  I.e. my mother-in-law signed her card with only her name - not her and my future-father-in-law.  Some people addressed cards/gifts to only me, or me and my fiance.  Regardless, I started to wonder what's the proper way to sign a thank you card?  With my name alone, or myself and my fiance?

    If you're writing the Thank You, you should just sign if from yourself.  Especially if the bridal shower was just for you and not a coupled shower with your FI and ppl's SOs.

    Sign it with your name only. If you write the card, you sign the card. It is a nice touch to perhaps mention your FI - "FI and I can't wait to use X!"

    i want to say that the gift is from both of them, and you are both thankful for it.

    EDIT: but you're the one who wrote the card. so mention that "FI and I can't wait to use the crock-pot" or "We're so excited about our new wine glasses!" but you're the only one who signs it.
    does that make sense?

    Since the bridal shower is specifically for the bride, I would just sign your name.

    Thanks all, MelissaAnne I like your idea of throwing him in, but not signing his name, solves my dilemma! :)
