Thoughts on the article below? Out of the last 6 weddings I've attended, I have only received 1 thank you card. All of the gifts I gave were not cheap (not that it should matter) and I included a card with each gift so they know who it is from. Obviously they have my address because they sent a wedding invitation. This isn't even including baby showers, house warmings, birthdays, and other times I have given gifts. And when I see these couples now, they don't seem to be embarrassed or "crap, I forgot her thank you card!" It's just like normal, nothing odd happened. Anyone else notice the lack of thank you cards? I don't understand how this becoming the norm. It's so tacky and rude. "Life gets in the way and couples forget." No, it's laziness. They didn't forget about the gifts or money, did they?
"Between work, social media addictions, creating a new home together, it falls into the 'I'll eventually get to it' category and it never gets done." Nope, nope, nope, lame excuses. Over half of couples live together prior to getting married and they had time before to plan the wedding, right? Too busy on social media to send thank yous?? Are you freaking kidding me?! Thank you cards are easily do-able on the weekends over 1-2 months. No excuse in my opinion. The lavish reception isn't the same as thanking someone for a gift. It's unfortunate, but I don't anticipate receiving thank yous anymore because of their rarity. Maybe I'll just give a box of thank you cards and roll of stamps as future wedding gifts.
