A friend’s sister got married in March and recently sent out her thank yous. They were preprinted! All they had to do was sign their name, no personalization what so ever.
It took 8 months to sign your name?
Just thought I would share this. I thought of the bee instantly, she obviously is not a member here!

This is seriously so freaking rude! I can’t STAND when people do this. My brother and now sister-in-law SCANNED a piece of paper that said “thanks for the gift and coming to our wedding” and then placed the pieces of paper into the thank you cards. WTF? Seriously?

I just met with a photographer who offers thank you cards as an extra and the sample she showed me had a pre-written thank you (but can be ordered blank). I too immediately thought of the Etiquette boards here but honestly had I not found weddingbee it would probably have never occurred to me that those were rude.

And I was offended when I got a typed-out card as opposed to handwritten! It was printed on computer paper, cut and literally glued to the inside of a thank you card.

I am generally not too concerned with following etiquette, but this one definitely burns me! I think a proper,personal thank you is the least newly weds can do!

This is the one bit of etiquette I always follow. I send a hand written thank you note for everything! Mind you, my handwriting is a hot mess. We are talking travesty people, and I still send one for everything imaginable. They are a must when it comes to weddings. My wedding was a DW, so I sent one to every guest with their picture printed on it. It was a huge hit because couples usually give a thank you card with one of their wedding pictures. I just wanted to do something extra special because it was a DW, and I wanted to show our massive appreciation.
Anywayz, back to the point. Thank you notes are one of those things where there is no middle ground. It must be hand written. Anything else is complete Tackville.
