Absolutely do not skip writing them. I would try to come up with some sort of generic message that works for money or a gift. “thank you for celebrating with us and helping us start our new life together…” etc etc

I agree, do not skip the thank you’s. We have been to about 10 weddings/showers and have yet to receive a thank you. So even if its generic, I say send one! 🙂

I would try to figure out as many as you can.  Also, can you start talking to people informally about what gifts they gave?  So that you can appropriately thank them.

Don’t forget to tear your place apart and try to find that list.  It would be best to include specifics about what gift they gave, but if that really isn’t possible, a generic thank you is still better then no thank you at all.

I wouldn’t include a link to buy a $15 photo of themselves.  If it was at all possible I would probably buy people the photo/print from your CD the photos and mail them out at a later date as a sorry I took so long to write your thank you.

I lost the guest list to one of my showers and just wrote generic thank you cards. I felt terrible about it, but figured it was better than no thank you at all.

for the people you do remember write them spacific, then write the generic letter for those you can  not remember…. You can always write the thank yous then once the photographer gets the pictures slip a picture into each thank you

A generic note is better than no note at all.

Did you have a registry? Most if not all of them have something like a “thank you note manager” which tells you who bought what. You could start with that + your memory and then write generic ones for whatever you don’t remember.

A generic note is better than nothing.
