I had to write about 70 and they took me 3 days I think. I disliked writing them, but they’re a necessary evil! Glad they’re done though, my hand was hurting too!

Figure out how many you need to do a night, at minimum. If you want them mailed in 5 days and you have 20 cards left to write, write 4 a day. If you write those 4 and still feel like you can keep going, do a couple more. 

That’s the only advice I can give… I know it’s tough! But it’s nice you’re hand writing your guest a message. I feel the impersonal typed up generic messages are all too common these days!

I created about 15 different thank you card templates. (15 different ways of basically saying the same thing).  I had to create this many because I have a lot of cousins and aunts that love to gossip about everything (it would be tragic in their eyes if they all got the same thank you card… and i would never here the end of it). 

My FI and I would just scroll through the templates, select one, copy it word for word onto a card, and mail it out…..

The templates (which were a bit tough to come up with) made the process a whole lot easier…….

@Daizy914:  Yeah I know guests appreciate it. Even if it’s a generic thank you (when a guest gives money I wouldn’t say thank you for the $50! I would say Thank you for the gift) but hand written means you took the time to do it and think about each and every card. 

I can imagine having 300 guests would be tiring to do up the thank you cards. But if it’s spanned out, 10 a night, they’d be done in a month.
