To me that says “lazy”.

I personally am not a fan. I love getting hand written thank you’s. Even if it’s a simple line like “Thank you for sharing our day with us” or “It was great seeing you!”. The hand writing just makes me feel special like it was written especially for me 🙂

negative, ghostwriter. Thank You notes should be handwritten and personal to the gift giver.

A big no-no. The card should have included a personal handwritten message, at the very least.

Big NAY. They took the time to shop, purchase, wrap (sometimes) your gift, take a few minutes and hand write a thank you note.

I consider myself very non-traditional in most areas of wedding planning, but handwritten thank yous are so important IMO. I think it shows true appreciation for the time someone took out of their lives to celebrate your day and give you a gift…Handwritten notes are just more personal.

I wouldn’t give an impersonal ‘thank you’ card because I wouldn’t want to recieve one.  It’s almost as bad as not sending one at all.

We originally planned to do postcards for our wedding thank yous.  A picture of us on one side and a hand written note on the other side.  When i did my first round of shower thank you’s I realized a postcard wouldn’t give me enough space.  So we’ll do cards with a picture of us on the front and a hand written note inside.  Anybody can put a card in an envelope.  It’s the handwritten note that makes it special.

I would think lazy and unappreciative if I received a thank you card that was preprinted. I think you should make an attempt to personalize the thank yous. But that’s just me.

I’d be scared to send pre-printed thank you cards to my family. They’d totally hunt me down and give me etiquette lessons. And then repeat these lessons everytime I see them until the end of time. No thank you, I’ll hand write them to begin with and save myself an earful for the rest of time 🙂
