Thank You Notes and Cards

You know you need to send thank you cards to all those who give you a wedding or shower gift. However, is there anyone else that should receive a thank you card?


You should send thank you notes to all your host or hostesses of your engagement party, bridal shower and rehearsal dinner. You may also want to send thank you notes to the individuals who participated in your wedding (readers, etc.).

Thank you notes should always be handwritten. Never write a form thank you note. Each one should be personal.  Whether you received cash or a gift off your wedding registry, you should include what you received and how you plan on using it on your thank you card.

Another nice gesture is to send a thank you card to any of your vendors that did a great job or exceeded your expectations!

Gifts received at the wedding shower and before the wedding day should be acknowledged within two weeks of their receipt. Gifts received on your wedding day should be acknowledged within two months of your return from your honeymoon.
