  • A Personalized “Thank You”. There is no doubt that you will get plenty of wedding gifts. But, no matter how time-consuming it is, you should definitely write genuine thank you cards. By thanking your guests for the specific gift they purchased, and letting them know how you plan to utilize their gift, you can create personalized thank you cards, which will certainly be appreciated, as well as showcase your own appreciation.
  • When to Write. You may have plans after your wedding, such as jetting off to your honeymoon suite. However, your cards should be written as soon as possible. Or, consider writing your thank you cards as you are opening your gifts, so that you won’t forget who purchased what. Or, be sure to make a list of what each guest purchased.
  • Making It Easy. Writing your cards can seem like it will take up a lot of time, and we won’t lie to you: it likely will be. To make it easier on yourself, you can write a few notes every single day. Carry cards with you and work on them on your downtime. After all, a thank you card just shouldn’t say “Thank You”, they should be given a great deal of thought and consideration, so that your guests know just how much you appreciate them.

Writing your wedding “Thank You” cards doesn’t have to be a daunting task! These are just a few tips to assist you with writing yours.

  1. That’s a good idea to personalize your cards. I feel like that would be a good way to show people that you actually care about them and their gift. I think that on top of a nice monogrammed card would be a good way to do a wedding thank you notes.
