I’m *finally* getting to work on our thank you cards just a little over a month after the wedding. I know, I’m bad for being slow. Anyway, I’m definitely writing the cards to all the people from my side. I’m also writing them to all our mutual friends, and I’ve written some to people on DH’s side who I know*. However, I’m considering making Darling Husband write the ones to the people on his side who I don’t know at all. My only worry there is that they won’t get done.
Who is writing your cards?
*Here, “know” means that I could pick their face out of a crowd and can remember having at least one conversation with them at one point or another.

I started to write them all and it just became too much. I ended up having him write to his family and i wrote to mine.

We did our own immediate familiies and close friends and split up everyone else that we both knew (extended family, shared friends etc).
On some, we both wrote something such as to our parents and nannie and the reverand.

I’m writing them because of FI’s chicken scratch writing! He hate it when I sign for him though (for example, when I write a b-day card for my mom…he hates it when I put “love, J+L…He likes to write the J and he wants me to write the L), so we’ll probably sign it off that way.

I did the majority, but Darling Husband did ones for family / friends of his that I don’t know very well!

Not married yet but for the gifts we got at our engagement party, I wrote the notes for my side and he wrote the notes for his side. I imagine we’ll do the same for wedding gifts.

I wrote the vast majority of them, as most of the guests were my family. I did have Darling Husband write them for his family and friends. So I wrote about 50 thank yous, and Darling Husband wrote about 15. I had mine done and sent about 2 weeks before him. I tried not to nag him too badly, but after a week or so of mine being sent, I straight up told him he was being rude to his generous guests. surprisingly, he wrote them all in one sitting, and had them mailed in a few days.

It’s only fair that he pitch in and help. He gets the benefit of the gifts also.

I wrote all our thank yous for expediency. His spelling is atrocious so I would have had to have him write drafts, proofread and then check his final version haha.

I’m going to end up writing ours because Fiance has terrible chicken scratch!

I wrote all of them. Otherwise people would never get them!

I wrote all of the wedding Thank You notes myself. 🙂 (However, Darling Husband wrote the Thank You notes to his groomsmen prior to the wedding, when he gave them their gifts for being in the wedding.)

I wrote them for my side of the guest list and he wrote them for his.

We sent ours on 2/6 or thereabouts. A few gifts came in later than that, so we sent notes for those when we got the gift.
We split them using the same list of his/hers sides for the invitations, so I wrote for my list and he wrote for his. It helps that our lists were mostly equal, and none of our guests overlap at all. We sat on the couch and wrote them together, checking off the list as we went. I found it easier to write them all first, then address/stamp after.
I suppose I should point out that I told him what to write — I gave him the general form of what I was using. I grew up in an extremely etiquette-rules-adherent household, so writing notes of all kinds is pretty much second nature for me. He always assumed we’d each write for our own list, so it was never an issue.

I ended up doing all but 8. Darling Husband was a big damn whiner and procrastinator about it and wouldn’t get his done. He delayed me about a week on sending them out. For 8. EIGHT!
