Thank You's... Have you sent them out?

Girls.. Have you sent your "Thank You's" out yet??


Don't tell me I'm the only one who hasn't! :)


(We just ordered them yesterday)


Also, what do you plan on writing to someone (in most cases "everyone") when they gave you money/checks?

Yes, I've sent mine..think was around the 5 week mark with an engagement pic included...I wanted to wait on wedding pro pics, but i didnt even get them til about 7 weeks out, then by the time I ordered  I figured it would be too late...


In regards to money gifts..."thank you for your generous gift(or monetary gift)" and tell them how its going to be used, maybe toward redecorating your home" ----but of course even if you used it to pay bills or debt- dont tell them that, lol

I sent out mine with wedding photos at the end of July, but I think you're allowed a few months...I didn't know what to say to the money gifts either, and ended up with something like "Thank you so much for coming to our wedding celebration last month, and for your generous gift of $--, which will help to support our life together."

We are almost done writing them.  We are just waiting on getting pro-pics so we can pick and print a shot. Then they will get sent out. But we have kind of spread the word that we are waiting for pro pics so people aren't wondering.

oh for the money/cheques - We are saving for a really good dining set so in the cards we put something along the lines of "thank you for your monetary gift- we are planning on buying a dining set and you gift is helping get there"

Nope!  Just ordered mine too!  :)
I am thinking of saying something like "Thank you for your generous gift!  It will definitely be helpful in our new home together.... etc!"  
I for sure wouldn't say thank you for your gift of 50 bucks!  haha  Just say Thanks for the monetary gift or something!  :)

Gah, I've been working on mine for weeks...I really don't mind working on them but they are just coming along so slowly...I hope I can get them out by the end of the month!  LOL.  I just put "Thank you for your generous gift.  We are hoping to eventually _________, so thank you for contributing to that fund! :)"

I just got mine in a few days ago and I've been working on them slowly but surely... I hate doing them just because it's really hard to do with my little boy running around my house like a little demon...

I have not sent my out yet.  I really want to include a pro pic and I get them in a few weeks. 


We got a lot of $$ - I wonder how this will look/sound:


'Thank you for your generous gift of cash.  We used it to buy a new mattress.'


And we really did!

We got ours done this weekend and I'm feeling very happy to have them totally out of the way! I don't think I did a great job of mine (I never know how to politely thank people for money, so I end up just being really weird and vague), but they're done.

It's such a good feeling to have that weight off my mind.  No more having to say "I'm working on them" everytime DH asked (because MIL was asking him about them)!  What a relief!

We got our thank you cards a few weeks after the wedding... our photographer was nice enough to send some sample pics that we could use for the cards.  I just finished writing up my last one today.  DH has been on my case to finish... of all people to push for the cards to be sent out!

We did them ASAP, but one just came back as the address being wrong, so now we need to redo it *sigh*.
