Wedding Thank You Note Etiquette

Wedding Thank You Notes Etiquette

Thank you notes are perceived as being one of the last stops of the wedding train. In a way, they are, but in order for you not to drown in envelopes, hand cramps, envelope moisteners, and gift lists, some thank you cards can be done along the way. For example, your bridal shower thank you notes should be sent out within a week, with a special note or gift to whoever hosted. Also, when you get gifts that come in the mail, you should go ahead and write your thank you note right after you open the wrapping. So what happens when you wait till after the honeymoon to send out your thank yous? Well...then you got to get a move on!

What time frame to write your thank you notes?

Some people say that newlyweds have a year after their wedding to send out all their thank you notes, and while you can consider that year mark as that absolute deadline, it is best to get them out within the first four months after your wedding. Like I noted above, thank you's for bridal shower gifts, those who hosted celebrations, or otherwise assisted with your wedding, should be sent out within two weeks.

What do you say in a thank you note?

Even if the gift or service is coming from someone that you may not be one hundred percent chummy with, the number one concern with a thank you note is to be genuine. This means using a stationary that is not pre-written or fill in the blank. Furthermore, in your personalized note, don't exaggerate or overly gush about how their gift is your favorite, especially if its not. Then, on the other hand, don't inform them that you are returning their gift because they were the fourth person to give you a crock-pot. Simply give your appreciation for the thought and time in which they have supported your new adventure. For guests that gift you with money or gift cards, if you know how you are going to use the money, feel free to tell them.

Bachelorette Thank You Cards

  Etiquette is always in vogue, and thank you cards are a welcome thought after most wedding-related events, though they have been, so far, mostly surrounding gift-giving occasions such as bridal showers or the big day itself. There’s something special about thank yous for your friends when they take time and money to throw you an awesome party, however, and though a verbal “thank you” is probably much-appreciated, it doesn’t take that much more time to articulate your thanks in writing via a set of bachelorette thank you cards.

Preparing for Bridal Shower Thank Yous

Prepping Bridal Shower Thank Yous

Bridal Shower Thank Yous

Writing thank you notes isn't everyone's favorite post-wedding chore, but it is a necessity that shouldn't be overlooked or put off for too long. Many guests expect thank yous, and many more will be very much appreciative of a timely one. Bridal shower thank yous have a less strict timeline than their wedding counterparts, but you still shouldn't put them off. Definitely send out bridal shower thank yous before the big day. Any shower gift you receive can be used immediately, so you don't have to wait until after the nuptials to send off proper bridal shower thank yous.   Bridal shower thank yous come in a variety of colors and styles, and are generally much more informal than wedding thank yous. Don't stress too much over formal wording either - guests don't need much more than a sincere note of thanks in your bridal shower thank yous!   If you're hosting a bridal shower and want to do the bride in question a big favor, make bridal shower thank yous easier on her my keeping a running list of guests in attendance, and what, if anything, they brought for the bride. Her bridal shower thank yous will go much faster and she'll definitely owe you one!

Tips for Prompt and Perfect Thank You Cards

Thank you cards are a chore most brides don't exactly look forward to as a "fun" part of the wedding planning process. They're tedious, time-consuming, and they give brides everywhere hand cramps. They are, however, an important part of letting your guests know that their gifts and attendance are appreciated, and they are still an expected part of the wedding process. Getting them done (in a timely manner) is something you shouldn't put off, so here are a few tips to make the whole experience a little easier:
Write them NOW for Early Gifts
Many brides panic when they receive a gift way before the wedding date. Though it's now common courtesy to send a gift to the couple's home instead of bringing it to the wedding venue the day of the event, that leaves many couples receiving gifts before and after the big day. Here's a tip: write the card as soon as you can and put it away in a designated spot for later. While you shouldn't use the gift until after the wedding, write the card as soon as you're able. The sentiment will be fresher than if you'd waited to write the card until later.
If you're worried that your guest will be wondering whether or not the gift made it safely, don't be afraid to give them a call - just don't send the actual note until the wedding day is behind you.
Write a Detailed Thank You Note List
Though you will be getting some of your gifts before the big day, it goes without saying that the bulk of the gifts and notes and cards will arrive all at once. You probably know that you should make a list, but I suggest making a more detailed list than just "name and gift." Make note of  who couldn't make it and specific sentiments that were addressed to you and your new spouse in the note. This will allow you to keep it fresh in your mind and make your cards more personal. You think you'll remember these things, but you won't.
Don't Put Them Off
Don't put writing these cards off. I mean it. Really. No one likes writing thank you cards, but they are so very very important to many of your guests. No one likes writing them, but everyone likes getting them.
It is so easy to forget to do thank you cards, but you have to make them an immediate priority (after your honeymoon, of course). Thank you cards are important to people, and it's the least you can do after your guests made the effort to send your their love to you and your new spouse for your wedding. Thank you cards that are ten months late are almost worse than no thank you cards at all. Imagine opening one up eons after a wedding and going "Oh yeah, I guess they never did thank us until just now. THEY'RE OUT OF THE WILL."
Write Personal Notes
Thank you notes are there most enjoyable when the writer takes the time to note a more personal message than "Thanks." Say what you plan on doing with the gift, and tell them how much you enjoyed seeing them, but really try to make it specific to them. It's common courtesy to write a thank you note, but it's truely enjoyable when you take the task in stride and mention just how thankful you really are.
