I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about people either getting Thank Yous really late or brides complaining they took too long (so they’re late). I can’t help but think, do these brides share the duty with their spouses? Even if you invite 300 people, a couple sharing duties could get their thank yous out in 2 weeks.
How did you do it/planning to do it? Did you split up the task (e.g. along family) or are one of you doing them alone?

I wrote all of them, because I wanted to make sure they went out. I just said thanks from the both of us, but only signed my name.

We got ours out just before the 6 week mark. We sat down and did them together.

I’m writing thank yous for our wedding shower right now. I’m doing them all, and will likely end up doing all the wedding ones also. FI is terrible with cards and coming up with something to write. Luckily, I’m really good at forging his signature haha.

Mr. LK and I split them in half. It was his wedding/wedding gifts, too.

We are writing thank you cards right now and we are splitting them. SO writes the ones for his friends and family and I write the ones for my friends and then we both sign the card.

I wrote all of them and signed both our names but my husband signed his name on cards to people who gave us super generous gifts (grandma, some aunts/uncles), etc.

@Syzygy88: I wrote all of them.

We split our engagement party thank you cards, and we will be splitting our wedding thank you cards as well. I will most likely be doing the shower cards myself, though.

Split! I did my family and friends, he did his. Worked out perfect. Gave him a deadline and to,d him I did not care when he did them as long as they were done by that timeframe.

I wrote all the bridal shower thank yous (and he signed).
For the wedding, we split them in half and both signed all of them.
I work for the government and we were shut down after my wedding so we got them all out within a week after the wedding. Was SO glad to have them done. I hate thank you notes – both giving and receiving them (not because I am not thankful, but they feel awkward and false to me – but I understand that they are important!)

LOL the only way FI is going to get out of it is if he is rubbing my feet every moment that I’m writing thank you notes. Barring that, he’ll be writing half.

I will be doing them. FH has really awful handwriting so it makes more sense for me to do them. I will do them a little at a time so I don’t end up with a stack.

We had about 110 thank yous to get out and DH did about 10 of them. I asked him to write the ones for his groomsmen and for the family members that I didn’t know very well on his side. We were moving at the time and he was doing a lot of the packing and transporting of our stuff or I probably would have asked him to do half.

My husband’s handwriting is barely recognizable as writing…so I wrote them all. In exchange, I spent one of our presents on 100% myself- a gift card to Nordstrom.
