    vttp926:  Was it a general Ecard that said the same thing to all guests? Or was it personalized to thank each guest for their particular gift? If it was personalized, I don’t think I’d be upset, but if it was generalized and just sent to everyone with one click, I would consider it rude.

    Curious to hear thoughts…different situation here but we are doing evites to save money and I realized we won’t have everybody’s addresses for thank you cards. I think a generic evite is pretty shitty, but is it always bad to do thank yous electronically?

    It wouldn’t bother me. If someone thanks me, that counts as a thank you. I don’t have such rigid standards for expressions of gratitude, though.

    Honestly, I know it’s proper to send handwritten thank you’s but I doubt I would ever get upset about not getting one. I usually read them and automatically recycle them.

    No class. That’s really poor manners.

    Its really rude.  If I were her mom, I would be telling her not to do this.

    jmsk12:  I think yes. Thank-yous should always be hand-written and sent through the mail. Can you get everyone’s address as if you were sending paper invitations? Then when they get the evite they’ll think you just changed your mind about how you were sending invitations, but you’ll have their addresses when it comes time to do the thank-yous.

    vttp926:  For a wedding, you should definitely sit down and make the effort to write each card. Considering how much people tend to help out, travel, spend, worry, take time off work.

    A generalised ecard to say thank you is really lazy…

    An ecard thank you is better than no thank you. It would have been nice to have a personalized message, but again, better than nothing. Even with personalization, I found myself still using the same basic format for all my thank yous.

    An e-card thank you is better than none.

    An evite saying ‘Thanks for celebrating with us’ does not replace a thank you note for a gift recieved. Bad manners if thats all she’s sending.

    vttp926:  I’m not surprised, it would push my buttons too. It was flippant of them and rude! 

    ETA my first post about etiquette was a comment on their ignorance not yours
