Wedding Planning Wednesday: Thank You Notes

To continue from our post last week, sending thank you notes after your wedding is a must! We’ve complied a few key tips for you to review when writing your notes.

Response time: Bridal shower thank you notes should be sent within three weeks of the event. Brides and grooms should wait no more than three months after the ceremony to send their wedding thank you cards.  If you are waiting for a professional photograph to use for your thank you cards, ask your photographer for one! While all of your photographs from your big day may not be edited and released for your viewing right away, most professionals will be more than willing to send you a few images for you to use for your thank you cards and some may even create customize thank you cards for you to purchase!

  • NEVER send a preprinted thank you card.  When you send a preprinted card, you are telling the person receiving the thank you that their gift didn’t mean enough to you to even receive a mention in your note.  A warm personalized, handwritten note, regardless how brief, tells the guest how much you appreciated the gift and how it will be cherished for years to come.
  • Send thank you notes to friends and relatives who arrange showers and parties for you.  It is appropriate to thank them for the party or shower in the same card you send thanking them for their gift.
  • Put your new return address on all thank you cards!
  • Although colored ink is readily available in your favorite stationery store today, it is still more appropriate to write your notes in dark blue or black.  It is more easily readable.
