I don't post on here hardly ever for the simple reasons of working full time, going to college AND trying to plan a wedding all at the same time so I apologize if this is in the wrong place. I do enjoy reading everyone else's posts though.
However, something has been on my mind and I felt like this would be the best place to ask.
I have been to four weddings in the past 6 months, all of which I have spent between $50-$75 a piece on each gift and have drove 7 hours one way to attend these weddings (they are all my first cousins so I felt obligated). These weddings have spanned from November of 2015 up until this past weekend. Now I know "thank you" notes won't be done over night and I'm not expecting them to be, but I have YET to recieve one from the one in November, the one in February and the one in April. Again, this last one was this past weekend so I'm really not including that one. I guess my question is...Do couples still sit down and write out Thank You notes after everything is said and done? Is this just a shower thing now? I am expecting to sit down after mine and write these out just because I feel it is respectful and a nice gesture to acknowledge someone who either took the time and attended or at least thought enough to purchase a gift. I'm not trying to be petty, I am simply just curious. Am I wrong for kind of "expecting" a thank you card or even just a simple, verbal thank you???
Sorry for the essay. Again, just curious. Thanks ladies...and gents!
