Thank Yous....

Just curious, did you send thank you cards to EVERYONE???  Even the people that didn't get you gifts???  I was actually surprised how many people didn't get us a gift OR even a card?  Not that Im needy or anything, I just personally could never show up to a wedding empty handed- or maybe thats just me?


Just curious on your thoughts...

what if you have a crazy-huge guest list and you're not exactly sure if some people even came because you were having such a fabulous time? Just go off of the guest book?

HMM - I'm stuck with that dilemna right now too!  I'm soo behind on TY cards and am just now ordering them.  I'm surprised at how many guests (mostly my husband's single guy friends) that didn't bring a gift or even a card.  And they brought guests too!  Some I understand are grad students and aren't working but atleast a card!! 


We've decided to send them a TY for coming card.  Technically guests have a year to buy a gift but I think it's not happening!


 


btw:  Soon2be - one of the ways you can tell if the guest didn't attend is by the escort cards that are left behind the sign in table at the end of the wedding.  Granted some people don't grab the cards and just find their way to the table but that's one of the ways to figure it out.

So we picked all three like you suggested Dirty and Im sending them out randomly- but GUESS WHAT- Im so bummed- we got our other pictures and I love his Thank You pictures way better haha figures... O'well :)


Anyway, Im finishing them up right now and running out!  I still need to do the no-present guests, the vendors, and non-guests that ACTUALLY got us something haha...  So wierd, I don't want to seem ungrateful- I didn't expect gifts from some people, but there were a few surprises IMO


Even my 2 bridesmaids didn't get us something- or even a card.  Its not like were not getting along or their poor haha they are just young and not very thoughtful I guess- I dunno?

We got some gifts from those we didn't invite!  I felt so guilty when I received the gift!

Yea, I hear ya - I would feel weird too - you'd think people would be thoughtful enough to think about even just a card?  I would be tempted not to send one to everyone (I'm so lazy hehe) but I would probably feel guilty and just send em all out...


I am starting to realize that some people just aren't as considerate as others - not that they're trying to be rude or mean anything bad, but it just doesn't occur to them, if that makes sense :)

I have a questions to go along with this...what do you do if you know someone got you something off your registry but you never got the actual gift!


My DH's aunt and uncle got us our crystal stemware...at our shower they gave us a card with the pic from the registry...and I was looking last night at what's left that wasn't bought and it says that the stemware was purchased...we have never got it...should we let the aunt and uncle know? Or just write a TY (shower) for the thought...?

If someone is in the bridal party should they bring a gift too? Or since they already spent a lot on the dresses and bridal shower gift are they supposed to give more?

I sent thank you cards to everyone who attending simply stating thank you for attending our wedding it meant so much to us to have you as part of our special day... blah blah blah... where's my gift you cheap ass... J/k! I was surprised at some people who didn't get us so much as a card. Like most our bridal parties parents who came to the wedding. WTH!

I was wondering the same thing...about people who came but didn't bring a gift or card. I thought I would send one just to be on the safe side....and it was only one couple.


HMM - where did you order your thank you's from? I'm doing mine tomorrow. Thanks!!

We've married for over 4 months. There is still large chunk of guests, even bridal party, that did not give us gifts. I don't want to say I'm hurt or "needed" a gift. But I'm hurt. I would never go to a wedding without a gift or even a card. And some of those who are closest to us didn't do anythin.


I don't know if it's because people spent so much to come to our wedding, most were out of town.


Like others I got gifts from those who weren't even invited. It's such a special time, and after you're married you realize this even more. I just don't get it.

I understand your disappointment Will.  I got some IOU's (from siblings and a friend) and I understand the guests that didn't give a gift if they traveled from OOT, but a card would have been nice!
