I love my Fiance for many things, and right now thank you note writing is chief among them. He’s writing approximately half–I offered to let him write only to his people, but he saw through that as his people are 65% of the list.
So, just a poll: Is your fiance(e)/spouse/partner helping with thank you notes? How are you dividing the work?

he offered to do half, but i said i’d do them. i’m unemployed now and he’s working all day, so i figure i have tons more free time than him and it would just be silly to make him do it.

We sent out our Save-The-Date Cards with our holiday cards, and we split those up my side/his side. We’ll be doing thank you cards the same way.

He definitely would if I asked him to, but he has horrible handwriting, and I’d like our guests to be able to READ our thank you notes, lol! He’ll definitely sign them all though!

Like amanda.lynn, my fiance is getting out of it because of his TERRIBLE handwriting. I’m pretty sure I’ll be writing all of them (with the exception of maybe his close friends that I don’t know too well.) I’m too embarrassed to have his chicken scratch on any more of our thank you notes than necessary! I’ll be sure to find other ways he can help me out to make up for the writer’s cramp I’m sure I’ll develop…

You didn’t have an option for “He wrote 100% of them.” My Darling Husband has beautiful handwriting, and I have the handwriting of a four year old. So all I did was type out what I wanted written on each card, and he wrote it out for me! AND he addressed all the envelopes. He’s pretty much a godsend, LOL.

It’s all me but I don’t really mind. I’m writting them as we start receiving gifts so it’s not like I’m going to be writting them all in one day.

My writing is a lot of better than his, so I will be writing them. He will sign his name on each of them, so that’s kind of “helping” LOL

@MightySapphire: good point!
I hear so many of you on the terrible handwriting part. FI’s handwriting is passable when he tries and given our ginourmous guest list, I’m desperate for the help.
But, he gets out of writing the envelopes because my handwriting is kind of calligraphy-like.

My fiance’ and I wanted to do it 50/50 but he has awful handwritting! awful! I’m not saying mine is amazing but it is neat and easy to read…
so now I am torn!

Absolutely! They’re his gifts too! We both think it’s only right if we split the work on that one (though I totally understand the handwriting concern).

My husband has horrible handwriting. I can barely read it and I don’t want to subject others to it!

My Fiance has icky hand-writing, but I’m going to make him address envelopes anyway, because I don’t want to do it all by myself.

I’m doing all of it myself because of FI’s handwriting. I don’t mind.

FI’s letters individually look worse than mine, but I can’t write in a straight line on unruled paper for crap. So we’re each in an equally bad position to be writing notes (and frankly, my handwriting gets AWFUL when I’m writing lots). I’ll kill him if he doesn’t split it 50/50 with me.
