So I wrote out all of the thank you notes to go to my close family and friends and I really wanted the ones to go to his family and friends to be in his handwritting so I had him write them up…
well i looked over one that was for one of his oldest friends and it started “Alright, Ass*****” you really outdid yourselves” and then went on to say that we were going to get them something equally as awesome for their wedding (they arent even engaged and although its not a point of issue as far as we can tell DH didnt see what was so bad with being “cute”) and he thought his buddy would find it hilarious… which might be true, when the boys get together they can be a bit ridiculous ( i swear my husband isnt a jerk its just a buddy buddy thing)… but i was seriously appauled… these are THANK YOUS!
and then i picked up the one to his parents and it was all of 2 sentences long. He said he didnt want to sound too sappy)
Oh boy.. at least I got to them and we worked it out together but MY OH MY.
anyone else have a similar issue?
(again i swear he is a great sweat guy! the ones to other friends and family were spot on but i guess since it was a close buddy he didnt want to be too formal)

The only one I made my husband write was the one to his grandmother (she kindof frightens me). Otherwise they all would have been two sentences long!

hahaha as long as you all know hes not a jerk.. just probably the way hed joke with his friend in person…. which may not even be that big of a deal but his live in gf would read it too and thats just… not cool.

Yeah – DH didn’t write anything thank yous because I refused to have them be just 2 sentances long (which is all he would write). Plus, his handwriting is terrible!

Haha – even before the wedding my husband kept saying how he would write half the thank you’s and what a great thank-you note writer he is (which he probably is) HOWEVER, his handwriting makes doctor’s writing look like calligraphy.
Seriously, we have been together 4 years and I can’t read his writing. I can decipher letters here and there, but hardly ever get whole words. When we started the thank-you’s, all I could think was “honey, I can’t let you write any; no one will be able to read yours!” 😉

Honestly, we’re both so exhausted after work and we had SO many TY notes to write, I didn’t even read most of the ones DH wrote. He did his family and friends, I did mine and we both signed every one.

@moderndaisy: I did make DH individually sign his name to all of them too. I think it looks way nicer / more personal. Plus – after I spent all the time writing all of them, I figured he could at least sign his name over and over!

This is super funny! For normal thank yous (like for birthday or Christmas gifts), I dictate to my bf what the thank yous should say and he writes them in his own handwriting (which is atrocious scribble). Otherwise who knows what would end up written on the cards!

My DH wrote them for his side, and he did a wonderful job. He had no excuse, because his handwriting is nicer than mine!
For the ones to his friends where he wanted to be a little “silly”, he wrote out a nice thank-you, and then inserted a separate piece of paper where he wrote out the personal jokes. I thought that was a good compromise.

I think the one to his friend is adorable!
I think my fiance is hoping to pull the “I’m a grad student! I’m too busy!” act with me on these, but there is no. way. that is going to work. Maybe if I threaten to send something like that to his grandparents, he’ll buck up and do his half of the work!
