I am just starting mine. I thought it would be easier, but I am having trouble getting started. So far, I have one card started with “Dear (guest’s name)”

I keep taking breaks, so I don’t have to write them, but I know I will have to get them done eventually.

I think I am going to sign the ones to the guests we really aren’t that close to with “Best” and our names. I really don’t care for the other options that I have seen :-/

EDIT: Okay, I lied. I just finished the first one and signed it “Best Always, (our names)”

@noritake22: @AB Bride:  what are these other options of sign offs that you don’t like?  i haven’t started mine yet as i have been using the excuse that i can wait until i get my pro pics on DVD and can print the ones that will go in the thank you cards.  i have also been using the excuse “i will get to it this weekend….for real!”

If I’m not close enough to write “Love,” I just sign it with a hyphen and our names.  I wouldn’t worry about it too much – everyone knows it’s going to be cheesy, but it’s the fact that you wrote it that counts.  Also, for registry gifts, I say “we love the ___” (because we do, which is why we asked for it) and that we can’t wait to use it/them for ____ purpose.  I.e. for bath towels I said “we love them and can’t wait to replace our 8-year-old college towels with the beautiful plush ones you got us.”  Hopefully no one compares notes, because they’re shockingly similar.

@dynamic_duo: Some that I have seen are Sincerely, Yours Truly, Best, Best Always, and Fondly.

I chose the Best Always one because I always sign letters and cards to loved ones with Love Always.
