Planning a wedding is a huge task, and you’re likely to receive a lot of help and support from friends and family both before and on your wedding day. Thank you notes are a great way to show appreciation for wedding gifts, emotional and financial support, and assistance or guidance in finding or decorating your wedding venue or wedding reception venue. Here is the newlyweds’ guide to writing thank-you notes after a wedding.
The Best Time to Send Thank-You Notes
You can begin writing thank-you notes as soon as you start opening wedding gifts, even if the wedding hasn’t occurred. This will help you stay on top of the task, and prevent it from becoming overwhelming. Keep a list of gifts received with the full names of the gift givers. Be sure to include anyone who contributed money, time, resources, or support, or made charitable donations in your name. After the wedding, make sure someone collects all gifts and cards from the wedding venue or wedding reception venue.
Make Them as Personal as Possible
When writing your thank-you notes, be sure to reference the specific gift or action for which you are grateful. Express how much the gift means to you, and describe a specific use or place for it in your new life with your spouse, particularly if it was a cash gift.
Have Fun When Choosing Stationery or Cards
You don’t have to use matching sets of stationery or thank-you cards, but thank-you notes are a great opportunity to order personalized notecards with you and your spouse’s name or initials on them. If you have the time, you can make thank-you cards yourself, or you can order them in bulk from a stationery store.
