@katiebbee:  agreed!  And I know it can be a pain in the ass, but I felt so good writing all my shower thank yous.  And I was really happy to hear from my mom’s friends, FMIL’s friends and directly from my friends how much they loved my notes!  It was a really good feeling and I really was thankful for the gifts I received.

There have been a few occassions when I never recieved a Thank You and I was annoyed, even just a generic card to acknowledge my gift would have been nice.

Amen to that!

I am a big proponant of Thank You cards! I am also sick of not recieving them…it’s horrendous! 

Twice I’ve been invited to weddings, and not rec’d one. Well, when those ladies baby showers rolled around, I was understandably all tied up that day. Ya know what? You don’t appreciate my time or my gift for your wedding? You’re not getting anything else from me!

I guess it’s never bothered me… I just thought back to a wedding I went to and a wedding I was in and I didn’t get a note from either but I don’t really care… it’s just a note- they can save the trees and just call or say thank you to me the next time they see me and I’m good.

Totally agree; I make it a point to send thank you notes as promptly as I can. Lol I am the person who sends a thank you note for getting a thank you note (thank you Mom for your OCD)

Yeah…I think I can give people the benefit of the doubt, but it’s hard when no one does it.

I think people just aren’t taught to do it anymore.  I can’t blame someone for not knowing any better, I just make sure to send them TYNs every time I get a gift.

I HATE writing thank-you notes.  But seriously, for big events like wedding/baby showers and weddings, you NEED to write them.  If you want to “Go Green” at least send an e-mail or call, (maybe send traditional thank-yous to people who would prefer them, like your Grandma, etc.).

I completely agree!! We had all of our TYs out before we cashed ANY checks or opened any gifts– they were all out within 2 weeks of our wedding. I’ve been experiencing this a lot lately, and it makes me sick. When I was a kid, we wrote thank yous to everyone for every gift (birthday, Christmas, etc.). I still write thank yous for those gifts as an adult! And what’s with the crappy Facebook “thank you” cop out?? Writing “thank you for the gift” on my Facebook wall is NOT an acceptable thank you for a $200 gift.

@katiebbee:  Amen! You are preaching to the choir here!

I have been wanting to rant about this too. I am sick of no thank you’s as well!

I got a text 5 minutes after leaving a bridal shower saying thanks for the gift.  It was a group text.  No formal thank you to follow. This has bugged me. Texting is the way we communicate more and more –but for a formal thank you? No thanks.

Another girl –> bachelorette gift –no thank you, jack & jill gift –no thank you, baby shower gift –no thank you.  At this point I refuse to buy this person another gift.

I bought a $75 gift card to Victoria’s Secret for another bride’s shower and one week later she called the wedding off. However, six months later she sent a thank you card for her gift.  Go figure. People are bizzare.

Anyone getting a lot of this very cute Thank You notes with the Bridge & Groom’s photos on them?  They are splendid —but everytime I open them up of flip it over to look at the back, there is nothing written inside.  This too bugs me.  It is like me mailing someone a blank card IMO, but atleast I got one.
