@decemberbride – you’re not the only one! I sent out hand-written thank you notes both for the shower and for the wedding! And tried to get them out in as timely a fashion as possible! We did photo cards for the wedding, but still included a personal note as well!

@december bride: I will be writing hand written personalized thank you cards for every gift we received.

I already wrote those for gifts received prior to the wedding. I’ll admit I’m currently slacking since I haven’t started writing them yet, but they will be written before the end of the year. And each person will get a personalized note on theirs.

Considering how many people actually handwrite ANYthing anymore, I hope this isn’t something that goes by the wayside. Unfortunately, it seems as though if one person thinks it’s OK, then the next one jumps right on it, and the next one…and before you know it, yet another thing has gone away. I hope not.

DH and I are handwritting thank you cards to each person who gave a gift at the wedding and we did the same for the shower.  We’ve been married for a month and half and we are almost done with all of our thank you cards.

It really pisses me off when I don’t get a thank you card for a wedding gift.  Like really, the couple couldn’t be bothered to take 2 minutes to thank me for a gift.

Oh and I’m 28

We’re handwriting all of our thank you cards, and I will admit I get kind of annoyed when we don’t receive a thank you note from a couple to whom we gave a wedding gift. No one *has* to send you a gift…I think it’s a nice gesture to let people know you received it and that you appreciate it.

I always always always write hand written thank you notes for every gift I receive. Thats the norm where I come from and people would definitely start talking/be offended if they didn’t receive one.

Thank you cards are great. All of my friends got married the last few years and my fiance and I displayed all of their thank you cards on our staircase! Everyone who comes over goes straight to the staircase to look at the thank you cards because each of them have their photo on the cover.

I’m 22.  Ever since I was 12, every time I got a gift, my Mother made me sit down and write the thank you note before I went to bed, on the day I got the gift. 

I always write thank you notes for EVERYTHING. 

I think they are “going out” though, along with everything “paper” mail.  Peoples Mom’s don’t teach them to write Thank You notes anymore, and so it dies out fairly quickly.
