Wedding Thank You Notes

 

Your wedding day and honeymoon are over and now it’s time to let everyone who helped make your wedding dream come to life know that you couldn’t have done it without them! You have such a long list of people you want to thank, but where do you start? Here are some tips for choosing the perfect thank you card and suggestions for what to write that will make your loved ones feel appreciated! And of course we want to make sure you don’t forget anyone on that list!

Choosing Your Thank You Cards

When selecting your thank you card you want to make sure that the style and format are appropriate for those who will be receiving them. Here are some things to remember when choosing the design of your wedding thank you cards:

1.  Including wedding photos on your thank you cards is always a good idea and reminds your guests of the wonderful time they had at your wedding. Photos will bring the thank you card as well as your messages of gratitude to life.

2.  One key element of your thank you notes is the printed message on the front or inside of the card. These messages should be something fairly generic so that it will work for all recipients. Remember, you will be thanking anyone who helped with or attended your wedding. Your list might include the caterer, cake baker, DJ, event coordinator, florist, photographer, family, friends, etc. It also needs to work for guests who sent you a gift but weren’t able to attend your event.

3.  The theme and design of your thank you cards should match the theme of your wedding. Wedding colors are the easiest way to include a part of your wedding theme in the design of the cards. Other ways to tie in your theme would be to include a monogram, a symbol or a design to match your motif.

4.  The formality of your thank you cards should match the formality of your wedding and your other printed materials like your invitations. The layout and design of your card should allow the correct amount of space for a handwritten note containing 3 to 5 short sentences.

What to Write

We all know the most difficult part about a thank you note is knowing what to write! You want to express your gratitude, but it seems impossible to do in just a few short sentences. Here are some guidelines for writing a foolproof thank you note.

Tangible Gifts or Service

1. Thank them for a specific gift or service.

2. Tell them how you plan to use the gift or why you appreciated the service given.

3. Let them know you appreciated having them at the wedding if they were there or that you missed them if they were not able to attend.

Cash or Gift Card 

1. Thank them for their generosity. You do not need to mention a specific amount for the cash or gift card.

2. Tell them how the money will contribute to something special you are planning to purchase.

3. Let them know you appreciated having them at the wedding if they were there or that you missed them if they were not able to attend.

Sending Your Thank You Notes

In general, thank you notes should be sent out as soon as possible! You will receive a majority of your wedding gifts at the reception, but there will be some who have the gifts delivered directly to your home before or after the wedding day.

1.  Thank you cards should be written and mailed as soon as possible, ideally within 3 months of your wedding date (but the sooner the better!).

2.  Thank you cards should always be handwritten! Handwritten notes are always more meaningful and let the person know that you really do appreciate them. Don’t forget, you should always address the envelope by hand too!

3.  Find unique ways to personalize your thank you card envelopes. A personalized return address stamp is cute and will help speed up the process. You can also add unique touches with personalized postage stamps or a sticker to seal the back.

Ultimately, no matter what style or options you choose, the most important thing is that you send out thank you notes to let your guests, vendors and loved ones know how much you appreciate their role in making your special day so special.
