Please tell me I am not the only one here. I have not received thank you notes from 3 couples whose weddings I attended over the last few years. We gave them nice presents, attended their wedding and they can’t write us a thank you note?!
This is totally a rant, but it bothers me. I was raised to always write thank you notes andI just think it’s so rude to not do this after someone has given you a gift.
The latest instance was one of FI’s work friends whose wedding we attended in September. It’s now been 3.5 months and we have not gotten a thank you note. I know that people are busy after getting married, but I get the feeling that this thank you is never going to come and it just bothers me. Perhaps it bothers me even more because they are invited to our wedding next year and I’m sure they expect a thank you note from us.
Anyone else bothered by newlywed couples who don’t write thank you notes??

I have had the same problem with some wedding gifts! When my cousin got married a few years ago, I got them some nice kitchen equipment and never got a thank you! But at least when I bought them stuff for their new baby this year, they did send me a thank you!

I have such a problem with people not sending thank you notes too!
My parents next door neighbors son got married in May, our parents have been neighbors for like 20 years. Because of my moms job, she can buy flowers at the flower wholesaler, so as her gift to them, she bought ALL the flowers for the wedding and did all the centerpeices and everything. Also they got married outside next to my parents house so my mom let them take all of her outdoor planters which were filled with flowers to decorate the reception with. My fiance and I gave them like $100 which was alot for us at the time. Neither of us got thank notes! The mother of the groom, apologized to my mom so much, and said she knew the bride didnt send a single thank you note and she wasnt planning on it! The mother was soooo embarassed about it. I guess some people just dont get it.

There was one wedding I went to that we never got a thank you card. Turns out I wasnt the only one – NO ONE got a thank you card that I talked to!
We also went a wedding in Oct 08 where it was about March 09 and we hadnt gotten anything. My DH talks to the guy every so often so he brought up the deep fryer we got them and asked what they were cooking in it (just wanted to make sure they actually received it!) and within the next week or so we got a thank you card 🙂
My pet peeve is not even that I want recognition for getting them a gift, but if I order it online and have it shipped to them, I get worried that it didnt arrive if I dont get a thank you card!
