I really wouldn’t.  Yes, receiving thanks in a timely manner is important, but I think that it would be kind of insulting to find out that after taking the time to buy a gift for the bride and groom, they didn’t even take the time to thank the guest themselves.  Personally, I’d say take a little longer, or carve out like, 15 minutes a day and sit down, you and your Darling Husband, and write the thank yous yourselves.

Sorry, but I still think that if guests have taken time to select a gift for you and possibly spend money coming to your wedding the least you could do is write your own thank you cards. 

I don’t have experience with any service of the sort. Even if you don’t broadcast that you used the service, I would still be worried about it getting out.

I haven’t heard of the service so can’t be really helpful.  But I actually think it’s an intriguing service!  If you compare outsourced thank yous to personalized ones, then of course they fall short.  But if you compare them to not sending thank yous at all (due to lack of time)… then it starts to get interesting!

Good luck – and if you use the service, please let us know how they do!

Wow, sounds like a cool idea to me!  I totally understand where you’re coming from.  Yes, your guests took 5 minutes to click on an item on your registry and have it sent or whatever.  That was ONE person.  Thank you notes take HOURS and if you have a large guest list, the task can seem really impossible!  I’d MUCH prefer to receive ANY thank you than none at all.  I haven’t even heard of this service, but please let us know how it goes if you use them.  I’d be interested in this kind of thing later on!

Is it possible to have them do just one? Then you could have them do one for you (without letting them know it’s for you) to see what kind of job they do. 

On an unrelated note, I have to say I would HATE that job! Writing thank you notes all day? I’ll pass.
