I love sending and receiving cards. We got a few engagement cards (congratulatory messages) in the mail and they were fun to receive and now I’m curious to know how common they are to get. Did you receive any? Will you be sending them to couples in the future?

We recived about 4. Only one arrived in the mail, the rest were given to us at family gatherings.

You need an option for 0. We didn’t get any, but I didn’t expect any either 🙂

I think 5-10, but they were all to FI (and from his friends/family) with the exception of maybe 1 to me from his parents to me. We might get more after we send out STDs but I kinda doubt it.

I don’t think I’ve ever sent any, but we’ve received 7- 3 from my friends, 1 from MOH’s parents, and 3 from friends of my Moms. All really sweet cards- esp. the one from a friend od Mom’s, where she wrote “I hope you are enjoying the planning and not allowing yourself to be overwhelmed by details.”- THAT one is right next to the computer, to remind me to keep calm and carry on! 🙂

I think we got at least 10-15. We had a lot of people send us gifts off of our registry with notes so I counted them as cards. We got actual cards from several friends and family as well.

We’ve received about 5 so far, mostly from FI’s family and a few friends of the family. My family is hosting an engagement party in my home town in a few weeks and people are asking about a registry, so I’m expecting a few more there too.

We received a ton of them at our engagement party and probably 10+ more that were mailed to us. 🙂 Almost all of them were from my husband’s family and friends and I love them for it!

I don’t remember exactly, but probably 5-10. My extended family all gave us engagements gifts too, even though we didn’t have an engagement party. I think it’s a regional thing. We got a couple cards from FI’s family too though, but not from most.

We got quite a few. I’d say 10-15 in the mail. They were from family members, co workers, friends. It was really nice!
