Go home tonight. Sit down with some wine/hot chocolate/ drink of choice and DO NOT MOVE until they are done! I am sure you will feel so much better when they are finished!

@CakeyP:  This is for motivation

Your defense is weak.  It’s not a defense.  I’m sure you were busy but who isn’t?

I got all 35 of our thank you notes done on our honeymoon.  You think we weren’t busy?  Be a gracious bride and get them done tonight.

I’d say get them out the door tomorrow!  They don’t have to be big long letters.  Think of how many more you are potentially going to be writing after Saturday (me too!!).  I literately wrote about 3 sentences in each thank you note and sent them.  I had two showers, so I really wanted them gone.

THey should have been written up before the shower happened since you were going to send them all thank you’s anyways!!! Chop Chop, you dont want to seem ungrateful. and like PP said, your excuse is weak.

 

 

Only being so crass because you asked!

@CakeyP:  This could be very selfish advice and horrible but motivating:

People who didn’t get a thank you from the shower may be reconsidering your wedding gift…

@playdohpants:  That’s the truth!!!

If I think someone is unthankful for a shower gift, I’m sure as shit not going to knock myself out to make sure they get an extra special wedding gift.

Everybody is busy. I would be rush posting these to save face at my wedding, motivation aside.. Its going to be awkward to face all these people on Saturday when they think you’re rude and ungrateful.

More awkward? People may be so offended they won’t even show..

@CakeyP:  Consider this your public shaming! Shame! Shame! Shame!

@CakeyP:  Instead of the scarlet “A,” let her don a flaming “TY” upon her chest!
