101 Days of Wedding Planning: Day 54: Track gifts received from guests and start sending thank-you notes.
It's a great idea now to write and send out thank you cards to guests who have already given you wedding gifts. This is especially helpful if you're having a really large wedding. Can you imagine having to write and send out hundreds of thank you cards all at once? We can, and we wouldn't!
You may, however, have decided to have a message typed onto your thank you cards. In this instance, you would just have to address them and send them out. Hint....We prefer the handwritten, personalized approach. If you're handwriting messages, read up on our 3 tips for writing great thank you notes to your wedding guests:
1. Instead of writing a generic thank you message on your cards, personalize each based on the guest and acknowledge their gift to you. For example, you may speak differently to your great-grand aunt, than you would to your best friends.
2. Consider writing thank you notes to your wedding vendors and performers. They may not have given you a wedding gift in tangible form but they did as a service.
3. Remember to acknowledge that both you and your future spouse are appreciative of the gifts received, especially if the gift is something for both of you. This can be done by one of you signing on behalf of both. You may decide that you will write to your family and friends and your future spouse to theirs.
Do you prefer to write all of your thank you cards at once and send them out, or to write them as you receive gifts?
