In the most recent issue of In Touch Weekly dated Oct 8, 2007, it is reported that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise still have not sent out Thank You cards for their wedding that happened last year on November 18.
Apparently, even the stars find writing Thank You cards a chore. Ms Cards Etiquette does find it amusing, however, that all the gossip magazines are blaming poor Katie for this faux pas, when in fact, both parties in a wedding should be responsible. This is the 21’st century after all, not 1955.
Lucky for the Cruises that it is never too late to write a thank you card. And, since they are reported to have had more than 150 guests at their lavish Scientology ceremony, they are also lucky that you don’t have to write more than a few lines on a Thank You card to get the point across. Since they have waited so long, they may wish to write an extra line or two explaining why their thank yous are tardy. If, however, they are too busy for that, just a simple “Thank you for the wonderful gift, we get a lot of use out of it.” is still appropriate.
I’ve written a few tutorials on Thank You cards that can be found here just in case Tom or Katie need some assistance on writing their Thank you notes:
