Okay I need everyone’s help tonight because I’ve heard a variety of answers to this question.
Here’s why I’m asking. Several ladies I work with just got married and while they were talking about sending out their thank you notes, one of them said that she had still not received a thank you note from a wedding she attended over a year ago.
The new brides (and single-girl me) were shocked.
Apparently, the woman’s friend, who was the bride, mentioned something in passing that she enjoyed her wedding gift, but the gift giver never received a thank you note from the couple, by mail or e-mail.
And when she told us what her gift was (it came from that famous store in an Audrey Hepburn classic film) we were all extra shocked.
I think she should casually mention something to the bride or groom. Just say something casually, not accusatory. To me, it doesn’t matter how big the wedding is, if people are thoughtful enough to bring you a gift, especially an expensive one, a thank you note is in order. Plus, if I found out other guests got a note and not me, I would be even more hurt.
What does everyone else think? I’m curious about your thoughts on this because I’ve heard different opinions about this topic.
Note: OMG I cannot believe I left out slap bracelets from yesterday’s 80s post. Seriously, I loved those things. I might have to dig around for mine. They were slap-tastic! Hmm that sounds dirty.
