Yeah… that’s just beyond bad. I’d be pissed.

maybe they were trying to do something cute and different. Was their wedding traditional or a little quirky? They should have at least signed their own names. haha.

Did it have a kid’s birthday party theme printed on it? I’ve only ever seen those for kids. Wow.

I could see them trying to be fun/quirky/different with this – I’ve seen similar things like that with rsvp cards and such … that might also rub people the wrong way. It’s kind of cute – though I would have at least hand-signed the names!!

I agree that thank you notes should be hand-written. It just seems more genuine that way and it’s definately more personal.

Maybe they are just extremely busy though, I dunno, but…the wedding was in JUNE? That seems like a LONG time to take to send a TYC. That’s what I’d be the most irritated about.

I sent mine out the next week…

I don’t know all the wedding etiquette rules though, so maybe I’m an exception.

I wouldn’t be TOO pissed though, at least they did aknowledge your gift somehow. I can’t stand it when people don’t say thank you at all. That bugs me a lot.

Um, I kinda think it’s worse than sending NO THANK YOU at all! And i always think a thank you is better than no thank you but this takes the cake! It’s definitely late for a June thank you card. I mean, really….a fail in my book, too!

You should write back an email:

Glad you liked the ____. We had _____ at your wedding

And fill in the blank =]

How hard would it have been to just use it as a template and write that out?  That’s worse than not sending a Thank You.

Kitty – we got one of those thank you notes too! It was pre-printed with just a space for our names though. So all they had to do was put our names, and then sign it. Just a generic, printed “thanks for your wedding gift! We really appreciate it.” I was a little offended that I went through the trouble of even picking out a nice card for the couple!
