Thank-you cards

You have received plenty of gifts for your wedding and you can't wait to use all your new accessories or try your stunning most advanced espresso machine... One of the best parts of the wedding is ripping through all your wedding gifts. Even though you are still in the euphoria of the wedding, beware not to forget your final but very important task: thank-you notes! Of course your attendees  and gift-givers  know that you will take little time to rest after returning from your honeymoon.Therefore don't make them wait too long, for fear to be regarded as an ungrateful couple...


If you want to follow the perfect wedding etiquette of thank you notes, it is essential  to keep track of all gift- givers and attendees. Some of your relatives may send you congratulation cards, or gifts even though they didn't  attend the celebrations. They shouldn't be forgotten either. The best way to avoid this would be to keep a written record of the proper names and addresses of all your guests, who attended (or not) and present they have given. If you organize yourself well, you will be able to send personalized thank you cards mentioning the name of the gift and how useful it will be in your life as a married couple.

The least you can do for your generous gift-givers is handwrite a personalized and warm thank you note. They would surely appreciate a special attention as they may have spend some time to choose the right gift for you.

Different types of wedding thank you cards

Usually, the choice of your thank you cards is made at the same time you order the invitations. You could try to choose matching thank you cards and invitations, coordinated with your wedding theme, it could be a nice touch.

Another idea that your photographer could suggest you is to make thank-you cards illustrated with a photo of the couple and the particular guest on the wedding day. This will surely delight and impress your gift-givers. Unfortunately, this solution is one of the most expensive, but it would be a gesture of sincere appreciation and a nice souvenir for your guests to keep.
In case you have already went over your wedding budget, maybe you would prefer a less expensive solution by making your own thank you cards.
