i would write on each of the cards. people were nice enough to go out of their way and buy you a gift, they deserve a nice, personalized thank you card.

I did this exact same thing! We only have about 100 thank yous to send, and we wanted to personalize each one, so we just ordered the insides blank.

It you wanted to cut down on some of the handwriting, you could have a generic message printed on the inside of the card. But you should definitely write a special message in each one too.

I know it’s not what you want to hear, but I think every deserves a personal note for sharing in your special day and bringing you a gift to celebrate your marriage. Get your husband to help with the notes if need be. 😉

There is no question in my mind that every card should have a personalized note to the recipient.  I’ll be honest, I’d be a little offended to receive a thank you from someone’s wedding that just had a generic message in it.

yeah i’ll have to agree, it would def be considered rude to send a generic message and even worse to send a blank card, which i think is what you’re thinking of doing?  Yes the list is long, but we all gotta do it.  sorry hun!  have fun 🙂  i’m making the thank you photo card too, ordered them from shutterfly and they should arrive any day!  then you and i will have the same task on our hands lol

You know you need to write a message in each one. It sucks but it’s the truth. Most places say you have 3 months to get your thank yous sent… so try to bust out 25 at a time, once a week. If you have time to do more, great, if not, you could have written 300 by the end of 3 months.

even with baby steps you will see progress!

I received one of these thank you notes with a generic note from one of my husband’s cousin’s two years ago and I’m STILL pissed about it.  Don’t do it, it’s offensive.

To find time: if you work, you could take 5 or 10 to work so that you can do some on your break/ lunch break each day, or if you’re on the phone a lot, work on them while you’re on hold.

Or you can barter with your husband. Show him the huge stack and emphasize (or exaggerate, lol) all the time it’s going to take. Then you can say, you wash the dishes/ make dinner/ wash my car/ etc., and I’ll do the Thank You cards. That way, you’ll be able to feel like he’s helping and he’ll take some stuff off your plate.
