Thank you's for all gifts?

Recommended Posts

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 hug2.gif

 

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!

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!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
