Two of our good friends married each other a little over three months ago now and we haven’t gotten a thank you note for either the shower or wedding gifts yet. We see this couple at least once a week, and while I certainly don’t expect a formal note from them to be mailed to us (they had a huge reception with lots of guests to thank), they haven’t thanked us or even really acknowledged the gifts yet.
What about you, bees? Would/did you send a thank you note to close friends, or just verbally thank them, or what? Just wondering what I should plan to do when it’s my turn!

I’m planning on still sending cards. I wonder if it’s not their thing, they are taking time to write them, or having trouble writing them and want to send them out all together. Who knows. My friend took awhile to send out her thank you for her baby shower and never mentioned about my gift. I completely forgot until I got the card.

I just realized FI and I went to a wedding back in November. No thank you…ever. Oh well.
ETA: I would write thank you cards. Only because it’s a very nice gesture, and who doesn’t like receiving pretty mail?

I wrote TY cards for every gift, shower and wedding. Close friends and family included (who else is coming to your wedding anyway?) I would be irked to not get one also.

I have not received notes from quite a few recently married friends. I was not really expecting them–they are not necessarily on top of things and I did receive in person thank yous later. I don’t really see the point in caring.
I did have one friend who was so prompt with her notes that I got the one from her shower (for which I forgot the gift under a cat but told her what it was at the shower) before she actually got the gift (which was postmarked for the Tuesday after her shower-the thank you was sent that Monday)
