Thank You Notes
“Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone.”
— G.B. Stern (author)
Write them within a month of your wedding.
Try to sound like yourself.
Recipients appreciate a touch of humor.
Avoid being generic.
Notes must be handwritten, and should be as personal as possible.
Talk about the gift.
When thanking a guest for a household gift, mention what you’re going to do with it. When thanking a guest for money, let them know what the money will go toward. When thanking a guest for an experience, share a little bit about it.
Don’t fake it.
When thanking a guest for a gift you DON’T plan to keep/use, tell them how much you appreciate getting a gift, and emphasize how honored you are that they were there to celebrate your special day.
Add a nice touch at the end.
Tell guests something like “we look forward to seeing you again soon”.
