We wrote our parents thank you notes and gave them gifts are the rehearsal dinner, but the notes were thanking them for helping us with the wedding + raising us in preparation for our spouses, that sort of thing.
Both gave us very generous financial gifts – should we send another thank you note for the gifts, or would it be superfluous?

i say why not. if they did that much PLUS a gift, i am sure it would only make them smile.

We also wrote thank you notes that we gave to our parents at the rehearsal dinner. We wrote another thank you note after the wedding as well.

You also have to think that you’re getting them a gift as well. Them giving you a gift+ you giving them a gift= no need for a thank you note? I always thought it cancelled it out. Like, you obviously thank them for the gift but if you’ve already written them a thank you note I say wait until you get a thank you note from them for your gift. If you get one from them, then yes because they’ll be expecting one. But if you don’t get one from them they’re not worried about it.

A verbal thank you will be enough.

Depends on the family. My parents would think I was crazy if I sent them a thank you card after saying thank you in person, but my FI’s parents would expect one. If you aren’t sure, I’d err on the side of caution and send the note.

I write thank-yous for everything (from staying at my in-laws place during christmas or for taking us out to eat). I just feel it’s good manners.

I say it doesn’t hurt to send them a card. We sent ones to our parents just for the gifts they gave us.
Beyond just being polite, we got custom made photo cards, so I knew they would want a copy.

I think that whether it’s superfluous or not, they will be happy to get it. So why not?
In other news, eleventy billion is MY favourite number! But I will let you use it just this once. 😉
