We all know the etiquette surrounding thank you notes for wedding attendants: hand-write it, get it out as soon as possible, and make sure each note is personalized. However, there’s a new thank you note “cheat” going around. We’ll leave it up to you to decide whether this is genius or tacky!
How It’s Done:
Near your guest book, simply place a stack of envelopes. Leave a sign or note asking each guest to write their name and address on the envelope. It’s that simple – when you’re ready to mail out the thank-you cards, you will have them already addressed! You simply place your cards inside the envelope, write your return address and you’re ready to mail out the card.
The problem many people have with this is that the guests are doing half the work for their own thank you cards. Brides from days gone by might even have a nervous breakdown at the thought of having guests write their own addresses and names.
So – is it okay or not to have your guests write their names and addresses on the envelopes? What do you think? We suggest you make the best decision for you. If you feel as though your guests would be offended, then maybe you should keep this wedding “hack” out of the ceremony. However, if your guests are laid-back and you don’t think they’d have a problem – by all means, go with it!
