Wedding Thank-Yous: How to Write a Perfect Thank-You Note

Did you think the work was over now that you said "I do?"  Unfortunately, once you are back from the honeymoon, you have a little bit of wedding wrap up to work on.  It is time to whip out some fun stationary and jot down a few thank you notes.  You want to make sure that all of your loved ones are properly thanked for the great wedding gifts you received and will continue to receive over the next few months.  It is not only polite and thoughtful to drop a little thank-you note in the mail (yes, we are speaking of snail mail, nothing electronic), but these notes act as confirmation that you have received those delayed gifts.  The process is really quick and easy.  Don't over think it - grab a pen and lets get to work.


How to Create the Perfect Thank-You Note

Grab your list, paper and pen:

First and foremost, make a list.  It will save you a lot of headache and time - so take the extra necessary step and create a list of the wedding gifts you received and who they were given by.   Now all you need is some fun stationary or a nice card, along with a blue or black pen.  Yes, we are saying you will be handwriting these wedding thank-you notes.  With all the email and text involved in daily life your wedding guests will find it is refreshing and heartfelt that you took the time to personally write these thank you notes.

Thank them for the wedding gift:

If you received a wedding registry gift, specifically mention the gift in the note.  Let them know why you love the gift and exactly how you will be putting it to use.  If you are sending a thank-you card for a monetary gift do NOT mention the amount in question.  Just blow right over that and get to what you will be using the money to purchase or do.  The wedding guest will love to hear how their gift will benefit you and your new family.  

Keep it personal:

You most certainly want to make each note a little special in some way.  Mention that it was great to see Aunt Sue at the wedding and that you look forward to seeing her at next month's family reunion. The addition of the personal info will help convey that you truly appreciate the gift in question.  Don't feel that your note has to be lengthy to be meaningful.  Keep them short and sweet and too the point.

See, I told you it would be painless! Wedding thank-you cards shouldn't be a form of torture.  Grab a glass of wine - maybe a bottle - and your husband (yes-he gets to help!) and get it done.  You have max of three months to get these suckers in the mail so you better get started!

Tell us what you think:

Do you have any pointers or suggestions when it comes to writing your wedding thank-you notes?  If so, we would love to hear what you have to say!

Fusion Photography was one of the first vendors we selected, and it was by far one of the best decisions we made! From the first meeting, we knew that we would have beautiful pictures but neither of us could predict our expectations would be exceeded at every turn.
