Our wedding was 2 months ago. I finished and sent thank yous to my guests, but my husband hasn’t started his yet.
I tried to encourage him to write thank yous to his guests when I wrote mine, I tried telling him to just write 3 a day. But it just doesn’t seem like he’s motivated to write them. He is very busy right now, his work is crazy and his mom is sick, so I think that I’m going to write his thank yous for him.
So my question is… should I write the thank yous as if they are coming from my husband? Will his guests be upset if they realize that his wife actually wrote the thank you? Would it be weird if I wrote thank yous to his guests that I barely know? (People that I met at the wedding). I’m not sure how to word the thank yous to his guests. Does anyone have any tips?
Thanks bees 🙂

I wrote all of the thank you’s for the wedding and signed both of our names. A wedding is about a couple – I don’t think it matters who writes the thank you’s as long as someone does. In all of the notes, I included the word “we” – so “we really appreciate…”

His guests are your guests, too! It was the BOTH of you who got married! So I think it’s fine to send thank you’s on behalf of you and your mister.
I wouldn’t write it as if you were him, but as it were the both of you writing the Thank You note. Perhaps have him sign his name at the bottom along with yours?

Thank yous should be coming from both of you so its not strange at all for you to write them. Just thank them for sharing your day and whatever gift they gave you.

My DH and I are doing our thank you’s now as well. We are just going through and doing whomever. He has written some for my guests and vs versa, it should be from both of you so it doesn’t really matter who does the writing.

I wrote the thank you notes to my husband’s guests. When using pronouns, I used plural pronouns, i.e. We are looking forward to using… I signed them from us both.

sign it in your name since you wrote it. Dont pretend he wrote it and sign his name.

You can write thank you notes to “his” guests as well. Like other posters said – it was a wedding for both of you and I’m sure the gifts you recieved are going to be used by both of you.
Just write them and sign both your names. I was faster at writing them than my husband was but I would ask him about the couple if I was unsure about anything so I could include more personal details in each note. He wrote a few to people I didn’t know who also didn’t attend but sent gifts.

They were there and gave you BOTH gifts, not just him. I would say thank you from thw two of you.
