It is better to do them yourself and have personalized cards. These people did spend the money to come to your wedding and give you a gift. Even if it is short it’s ok. just try to do a certain amount a day. say you want to mail them out a month from now, do the number of guest divided by 30 and do that amount per day.

Put on a movie while you do it! Trick yourself into thinking it’s relaxing.

Even if it’s not fun, remember that people took time to pick you out a gift and come to your event! My mom gets really hurt if people don’t send her a thank you card,  because she always puts time into the gift. A friend of mine didn’t allow herself to use any of her wedding gifts until she sent out the thank you card for each gift. Might be a good idea to start a policy like that to give yourself more motivation.  (And ps, flew home for the second time in 3 weeks to go to my friends wedding and brought a really nice gift, and still haven’t gotten a card 4 months later. It has definitely colored my impression of our friendship, since it cost me so much to get there).

Don’t feel bad… I still haven’t designed our thank you cards. :S In my defense, we’ve had some problems with getting photos from our photographer, and I’m waiting for those (they should be here, next week). I feel horrible, though… especially because I want to get started on my Christmas cards. 😛

@RockStar33:  I’m guilty of this, too! 

I told everyone that I was waiting for the photographer’s photo which was true but he sent them a month after the wedding; I had the cards printed within a week so they’re sitting on my desk now.  The cards are haunting me in my dreams.  lol

If you do yours, I will do mine.  Wink

I feel you.  I got most of my cards out a month or two ago.  I have about 5-10, which are partly to vendors, and the rest are to guests who I don’t have addresses for, or have to search for them.  And they have been just sitting there.  I am either too busy to do them, or don’t feel like taking care of them.
