Did you/are you going to write thank you notes to your parents and WP? I don't see motivating FI to do it for his GM and I don't know them all well enough so it would probably just be for my BM and parents. I had it on my to-do list last weekend and I either had writer's block or got too choked up thinking about it to write anything. Would it be horrible not to? Both FI and I were in (separate) weddings this year and neither of us received one, but I've heard of them. I got them thank-you presents of course, and my parents' are pretty sappy as is. I am making our welcome speech since FI doesn't like to make speeches and I plan to thank the WP and parents there. I was thinking I could always say thanks for being part of our day in our regular thank you notes if they get us a gift (and send them one anyways even if they don't...many of them traveled plus the cost of their outfits so not really expecting gifts). I don't want to be a jerk for not writing one but I don't want to force it either.
