You just finished planning and celebrating one of the most important milestones of your life. You probably just returned from your relaxing honeymoon and it’s on to the next major to-do, opening gifts and writing Thank You notes. Before you begin the actual thank you note writing process, prepare yourself!
Keep in mind that the wedding thank you note project begins way back when you gather your wedding guests’ names and addresses to send the invitations. Do yourself a big favor: Save that list! Make a copy of it at invitation time and put it away. Before you start opening gift boxes, find the list and record each gift next to the giver’s name and address.
Set up a designated writing area at home.
Buy yourself some great wedding stationery. Even better: Have them monogrammed with your new initials and a custom designed thank you card from an image from the wedding. That’s right, flaunt your married status!
Equip yourself with pens that you like to write with. Go for a more grown-up writing instrument — roller-ball pens are much smoother. Mont Blanc makes some impressive models, if you’ve got the cash. Go ahead and have it monogrammed, as long as you’re in we’re-married-now mode!!
Stay tuned for Thank You note writing tips next week!
