I have a few thank yous that I still haven’t gotten out. We received some cards from some of DH’s family. I’ve never met them and they didn’t come to the wedding. I think hubby has only even met these people a few times in his life.. I’ve tried to get DH to do it but I honestly think he’s clueless about how to do thank yous. Plus, his handwriting looks like a 5 year old’s writing so I’m not sure I (or him) would want him writing them anyway haha. Any advice?

Did they send a gift or money? Were they invited to the wedding? Just write a thank you note like all of the others, doesn’t have to be complicated.
Dear John and Jane Smith,
Thank you so much for the card (gift). We appreciate your kind words and wish you could have made it to the wedding! Hope to see you soon!

@Birdee106: They were invited and they sent cash/gift cards. I probably put too much thought into writing thank yous!

Then I would add something like ‘Thanks so much for the gift card, we got some great new kitchen items (or whatever) with it! So nice of you!’

@Birdee106: This is good – keep it short and sweet. Since the note is obviously coming from you, you could add in something like “I look forwarding to meeting you” or something along those lines.

“Dear Greta and Anais, Thank you so much for your gift of a KitchenAid mixer in Persimmon. I look forward to having cakes baked for me at every anniversary! I know Greg loves to bake and it is the perfect item for our new life together. As Orson Welles said, “We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through friendship and love can we create the illusion that for the moment we’re not alone.” Thanks for helping us maintain the illusion!”
Well, without the inappropriate quote, of course.
