So we’re headed to Eastern Europe for our vacation. We set up a honeyfund. People can buy us portions of our tickets, hotels, entertainment, etc.
My question is this:
Instead of sending a thank you card to thank people for their monetary gift, would it be tacky to send a thank you post card?
Say for example, an aunt bought a portion of our train ride to Croatia. So I send her a post card from Croatia saying something like this: “thank you for your wedding gift. Because of you, we’re having an awesome time in Croatia. See you soon!”
Is this a rude form of thanking someone? It would be a considerably long time before they get the thanks card because we’re getting married beginning of June and taking the trip in August.

I think I would do a verbal thank you and then send the post card as a formal way of thanking her as well, it’s a very cute idea

I think it’s a really cute idea, and I can’t imagine anyone would be offended.

I would probably send a traditional thank you card. Personally, I wouldn’t consider a post card on vacation as a thank you card, and I don’t think you’d want to spend your honeymoon writing out a bunch of thank you post cards anyway.

Not rude, I love that idea. It makes it personal and it’s very thoughtful to send postcards anyway.

@Whatsinaname: I’d do both. a regular thank you, and then the post card as an added something

Would you be open to buying postcards on your trip and then sending them when you get home? I don’t think you’ll want to be writing many postcards while traveling, but I think it is a fun way for them to see you enjoyed their gift. You could even make your own post cards with different photos from your honeymoon to make things a little more personalized.

Maybe order the postcards online with Serbian destinations before the wedding. Send them out right after the wedding as a thank you. You can say “Thank you for your wedding gift. Because of you, we will have an awesome time in Croatia. See you soon!” Just an idea! 🙂
