I can’t bring myself around to writing out our thank you cards. I have been meaning to do it for the last month, and the box of cards has been sitting on my living room table waiting for me. My hubby filled out the envelopes already, so all i have to do it write on the card but……. I don’t want to! haha. grrrrrrrr… can i pay someone to do this for me? it just seems so tedious but i know i have to do it soon, and i want them out before i send out christmas cards, haha.

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.

@Lalk2bee: Obviously i’m not going to have anyone else do them…. i was just saying it’s something i don’t want to do and i keep procrastinating.
*sigh* maybe i’ll start a few today.

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.

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.
