I understand why people send those for sure.  There were only so many ways I could say thanks for the money and what we are going to do with it.  That being said, I still like getting a hand written card.

I kind of like them.  I was in a wedding last year, and the bride did them.  I thought what a time saver!  But when I thought about doing them for my own, my mom told me that my dad thought that was incredibly rude.  So I won’t be doing those, but I am thinking of doing a picture card, or just including a picture with the thank you note.

Thats all it said?!?!  Wow!  Was it at least hand written?

If it was possible to completly get rid of thank you cards, I’d be all for it.  I’m thrilled to be finished writing them and I would be fine with never receiving one in the future if that was culturally normal.  However, they are expected these days and It’s pretty lame that she didn’t even attempt to personalize it a little more with your name, or possibility a reference to seeing you at the wedding!

Oh, and BTW, this makes me feel slightly better about how long (almost 4 months eek!!) it took to get mine out, at least they were all written out with gift comments etc 🙂

Before being a bride, I honestly don’t think I would care. But now that I’ve been one and handwrote all my thank you notes, giving specific thanks to individuals gifts, I feel different. I now think that taking the time to do that is very important 🙂

Ok I went ALL OUT on my Housewarming thank you’s and Bridal Shower thankyou’s…like rediculously personalized and cute. So for my wedding we created a beautiful photo card of 5 or so photo’s of our wedding on the front and honeymoon on the back and had a basic “Thankyou for your very generous gift” Then we posted a link to our photo’s on the back and our youtube dance. They are beautiful and I love them. I think it was ok for us to do that since I went all out on the others. I even threw in personal photo’s in the bridal shower thank you cards. : )

I think “underappreciated” is a good word.  I feel like a TY like that is just a matter of getting it done, rather than really recognizing what the person has given you.  Like you Lillindy, I really tried to personalize the notes I wrote, so that the people really knew what I thought of their gift and their presence at the wedding.

I feel like – are you not sure what I gave you?
