    I'm a little confused about sending some of my thank you cards. We ordered special postcard style cards w/ pics of ourselves in black and white. I'm not sure if I should send these for the following situations:
    Wedding gifts that were given as Christmas gifts: many family members gave us stuff off of our registry for Christmas
    My mom: she has given me several "wedding gifts" at this point. Everytime I go home she has a little gift for me

    I feel like I should send thank you's in these situations, but should I send our special "wedding" thank you's? If so, they would probably be receiving these cards more than once. Thanks ladies!

      hm.. if you were given gifts for christmas i wouldn't send a card unless you normally send thank yous after christmas. it seems like they may not have known what to get you, or wanted to get you something you actually wanted for the holidays so they used the registry. and i would just call my mom and tell her how much i appreciate everything... my mom hates cards!

        I second what was said above. If you don't normally send thank you notes for Christmas gifts, I don't think it is necessary now. Also, I think one thank you to your parents when all is over, is enough. As well as saying thank you along the way, of course.

          i would only send a card for christmas gifts if you didnt receive the gift in person to say thank you. I would just use regular thank you cards for that. I wouldn't send one to your mom all along the way. Send one extra nice one. I think a thank you phone call is enough for small gifts all throughout.

          Yes, send a thank you. But I concur with regard to using ordinary thank you notes. Even if it was off your registry, it wasn't a wedding gift, so save those.

          And for mom? A phone call would undoubtedly suffice, but maybe a little thank you gift in return - an engagement photo or something, maybe?

            I would say, if in doubt, send the card. It doesn't take much to do and is always appreciated. Don't send your special wedding thank you more than once, but I think it is always appropriate to acknowledge a gift with a hand-written note.
            Perhaps this is your opportunity to order personalized stationery with your new name!

              I have to say that I think you should definitely send a thank you card, but not one of your special wedding ones.

                Thanks, ladies. I'm so bad about sending thank yous in general, but I want to make sure I get all of the wedding ettiquette correct. Is it too late to send thank yous for Christmas? Oops!
