When in doubt  quick card couldn’t hurt. Do them when you get back. They do not take much time to write.

queenieheather :  Yes. I think that would be the most proper thing. Nothing compares to a recieving a card in the mail. It’s always better to go a little further than strictly necessary in these situations in my personal opinion.

It’s always nice to send a proper thank you card, even if you’ve called and thanked them. A lot of people will have a wedding photo on the thank you card – then everyone receiving one is also getting the gift of a wedding photo

I would send a quick thank you card. No harm by being grateful.

I agree with all the PP’s, I’d send a card. It’s always a nice gesture and its something that sentimental folks will hang on to and everyone will appreciate the additional thank you and acknowledgement of their generosity!

Yes — a verbal thank you is not sufficient.  You need to send a handwritten thank you cards.

Absolutely, you should send thank you cards for the gifts received to date.

We wrote cards to everyone who attended or gave us gifts, BUT personally I wouldn’t expect it from newlyweds myself (we just thought it would be a nice thing to do!) and I think most of the recipients were not expecting cards, much as they did enjoy them… so in short: I personally don’t think you need to if you don’t want to. 🙂 I’m in the UK though, and our families are mostly Swedish and South African, so there may be some cultural differences to account for.

It’s not optional; a handwritten thank-you note is essential.

Sure, send cards to thank those who sent money, no need to send a thank you card for just a card though
