Is it ok to write a similar thing in everyone’s thank you note if they gave you money?
I got a lot of cash gifts, and I have a few versions of pretty much the same thing, thank you for your generous gift, we are saving for a house… blah blah blah,
is it ok to put almost the same thing in every thank you card?

I did. I mean, I tried to shake it up as much as possible, but yeah, there are only so many ways to say, “thanks for the cash.”

they arent going to sit around comparing thank you cards, so if theyre the same its not a big deal. Like PP said, theres only so many ways to say it…

ok it just feels weird to write the same thing like 100 times over

I think it’s fine. I’m writing my thank you notes out right now, and most of them are looking very similar. I am trying to add one personal phrase on each person’s card… for example if a guest traveled a long way to get to our wedding, I put “We really appreciated the long distance you travelled to celebrate with us,” or if a guest couldn’t make it but still sent us a gift, I wrote “We really felt your love and blessings with us on our wedding day.” So even though I am recycling these personal phrases, each person gets something that acknowledges something personal they did. Also, friends and family members that really helped out during the wedding are getting longer, more personal notes thanking them for the services they helped out with… we couldn’t have done it without them so we really want them to feel our gratitude!
Off to write more thank yous… I can only get through two or three before my hand starts to cramp! I am SUCH a baby!

I agree. I try to add something personal that’s not part of the “thank you”, like “It was great seeing you at the game” for a classmate, or “hope to see you over the holidays at [relative’s] place” for a cousin.

It’s hard not to say the same thing when it’s money….i mentioned a few items we really wanted, and said something like, “thank you so much for the wedding gift. We used it to get a stand mixer!” but obviously worded more eloquently.

I think this is fine. I know we did something similar for the folks who gave us cash, because you couldn’t specifically reference the gift they gave. I figured that people wouldn’t compare their cards, so we’d be okay writing something similarly worded to the cash gift people.

Yeah, we pretty much said the same thing, and just wrote about what we were going to put the money towards; and it was pretty much the same in each one 🙂

I definitely think it’s fine. We did the same thing. I think depending on if they came to the wedding or not, I varied that part of it, but it was mainly the same message in all of them.
