Found at Shine Wedding Invitations
After you’ve celebrated your big day with all your closest friends and relatives, you might think all your hard work and planning is over. But there is one crucial step left to complete your wedding! And that is sending out the thank you cards. It’s important to thank your guests for taking the time to come to your ceremony and purchase a lovely gift for you. Since it might be difficult finding a place to start, take a look at this list of 5 basic rules when it comes to writing wedding thank you cards: 1. Thank you cards should be sent out no later than 3 months after the wedding. Any later, and guests will be left wondering if you hated their gift or didn’t appreciate them flying to a different country to celebrate with you. 2. When writing thank you cards, always make sure to include the name and specifics of the gift that was given. If there is any vagueness in the card, the guest might feel like they’ve received an impersonal and unappreciative card. 3. Even if a guest came to the wedding and didn’t bring a gift, make sure to always thank them anyways for taking the time to come and celebrate with you. 4. Don’t forget to write thank you cards for your vendors as well and anyone else involved in setting up or planning the wedding. This gesture is extremely appreciated. 5. Traditionally, thank you cards are written in blue or black ink on an ivory card. Although it is not necessary, keep that in mind when picking out your stationary. And those are the basics of writing thank you cards! It can be pretty daunting sitting down and trying to thank over 100 people all at once, so plan ahead and choose certain times of the day to write the cards. And make sure to double check the guest list so no one is forgotten! © 2004-2013 Kwanza Clay Bowe and Kate Zhukova, AWeddingBreeze.com/Access Exuma, Ltd.
