    I had the same situation – don’t yet live with DH – and I just wrote the cards.  In my opinion, writing them together is a nice idea if your in the same place but just too logistically difficult if not.  

    An alternative you could consider is dividing up the list and having him write half the cards and you write the other half.  I understnad this is common.

    I think it’s fine, but I wouldn’t care if I received a typed thank you note anyways. I don’t know why etiquette is against technology, haha. I think in this case it’d be more personal to have something composed by the couple rather than hand written by only half of the couple.

    I wouldn’t give a crap if I got a typed thank you – technology is here to make life easier!

    @jetsetlilypad:  I was going to say that I couldn’t care less if a card is typed or not, but then I don’t care if I even get a thank you card, I’d sooner take a call or a text to tell me they like the gift.  So maybe I’m not the one you want to go off, because I guess I’m rude on my own behalf 😉

    Why not just write the messages together in a shared word processing document and then halve the list and hand write them. That way they are handwritten and you both have had input into the individual messages to your guests.

    I am having a pre-typed message which is about 3 sentences.  I am going to write another 2-3 sentences by hand to make it a little more personalized.

    My husband will only be signing his name.
