So we got married 5 weeks ago and have about half of our thank-yous done. We wanted to have them all done already, but both got really sick for two weeks, and are just now feeling better.
I was writing thank you’s to people that mailed gifts first, so they knew that they got there okay. The problem is, my husband’s grandpa gave us a very generous gift, but we haven’t written his thank you yet. And so my FIL just called my husband and reamed him out about it.
We realize its terrible we didn’t write his earlier, but we didn’t mean not to. My husband thanked him for it in person, but he forgot, and so then asked my in-laws if he had gotten his gift.
Ugh. I just feel like…we aren’t 7…you don’t need us to remind us to write thank you’s….we’re trying!

I’m sorry your in-laws are nagging. I think the generally accepted etiquette rules are that you have a year to write thank you notes. I’ve been to weddings in the last few years and NEVER received one, sometimes they came 6-8 months after the wedding. 5 weeks and they’re stressed? I think if it comes up again you should calmly inform them that you are working on them, and then let them know you’d love for them to help you get them done faster! 😉

m so sorry that you FIL reamed out your husband, thats awful.
I`ve been to 6 weddings this past summer and now that i think about it, have gotten thank-you cards for 1 of the weddings.
as newlyweds you have a lot on your plates, you have obviously put some thought into your TY
s as youve mentioned. keep doing what you`re doing, and try to ignore everyone else…..
