This seems like a no-brainer. If a bride (or groom) can’t take the time to write and mail a proper thank-you card to their guests, they either have had extremely poor role models in their lives, or they have taken modern-day self-absorption to another level I didn’t believe possible. Taking a few minutes per card shows real gratitude, respect, and consientiousness. Sending a POSTCARD thank-you note shows laziness, self-absorption, and a complete lack of self-awareness: it will reflect very poorly on the newlyweds. Do not send tacky, cheesy POSTCARDS, please!!!

I find it strange you’d create an account just to vent about postcards. We don’t take kindly to people calling things tacky and cheesy either, just a heads up.
I did post cards, but I also wrote a note on the back of each one. So chill out, Emily Post.

You should be glad to get a Thank You at all nowadays. I wasn’t aware that one was to dictate the way they are thanked?

I personally don’t think they are tacky or cheesy to be honest. I dont care what form the thank you note comes in as long as they send one. Not sending a thank you card….now that is tacky.
There are several photobooth companies that throw in thank you postcards using your three favorite images from the wedding, they are pretty cute In My Humble Opinion.

Totally agree! My parents received a thank you post card after sending a wedding gift to a family friend’s daughter. The note was generic…something like, “Thank you for thinking of us on our special day.” The couple didn’t even sign it themselves! When guests shell out money to attend your wedding or send you a unique gift, it’s so rude to send the same thank you to every guest in post card form. I’m NOT a fan!

You are so much ruder than the people that gave you a thank you!!!!!!!

Wow, this is really rude. I think a thank-you, whether it’s in the form of a notecard or postcard, should always be appreciated.

I think thank you postcards are fine IF you write a personalized note on each card.
If it is just a mass-produced card with nothing personal, just a generic message – then yes, I would find it a bit rude.

A proper poll doesn’t try to influence the voter. I’m choosing not to vote because I received a postcard thank you that was so heartfelt that it made me cry. Please don’t try to shame people into thinking like you. Politeness and reason tend to influence people more effectively.

Hm well I actually think I may be using post cards as thank you’s (that we purchase while on the honeymoon) I don’t see how it’s rude to thank someone…

I have seen many personalized thank you postcards with pictures of the bridal party or the couple etc. that are very much not tacky. I personally would prefer to send a card, but there are a few nice ones out there so I don’t believe they would all be dismissed.
That being said it is a bit strange that you created an account to only vent about post cads, but everyone is entitled to thier own opinion and just becuase our styles are not the same does not mean we don’t want to get to know you, so welcome to the boards and please play as nice as possible.

I just got a postacrd thank you from one of my clients, I have never seen them before but i loved it!!
They wrote a nice note on the back and signed it as well. It was very nice.

Eh doesn’t bother me. I don’t see why a postcard takes any less thought than another card. I think it’s tacky to complain about exactly how someone thanked you.
