Etiquette Tips for Wedding Thank-You Cards

Etiquette Tips for Wedding Thank-You Cards

After you’ve finished basking in the glow of your newly minted marriage you’ve got a few loose ends to tie up, namely sending out your wedding thank-you cards. Yes, you’d probably rather spend your post-wedding days dreaming about your honeymoon, but you’ve got a bit of work to do. Luckily, the process is painless. Follow these tips and it’ll be smooth sailing.

Here are a few etiquette tips for wedding thank-you cards:

Should wedding thank-you cards be handwritten?

Sorry to all you tech lovers, but your wedding thank-you cards really should be handwritten, so put down your MacBook and start working on your cursive. If your penmanship isn’t particularly attractive, ask a wedding party member to lend a helping hand. Note: these don’t actually have to be works of art, what matters here is content, not presentation.

What should I write in a wedding thank-you card?

There really is a science to penning the perfect wedding thank-you card, so listen up. It all boils down to a basic formula: greet the recipient, thank them for the specific gift they sent, let them know how you’ll use it and finish up by thanking them for attending. If the guest couldn’t make it to your wedding day, bridal shower or other gift-worthy wedding events, swap the ending for something like “sorry you couldn’t make it!”. Remember to proof them if you’re doing a lot of cutting and pasting, you don’t accidentally want to thank someone for the wrong gift – sincerity is key.

Does every gift get a wedding thank-you card?

Yes! Every prezzie warrants its own unique wedding thank-you card. You may be tempted to double stuff envelopes after your wedding with thank-yous for wedding shower presents and wedding gifts, but these should be separate pieces of postage (and sent out at different times!).

When should I send out wedding thank-you cards?

Your wedding thank-you cards should be mailed out ASAP. No, I don’t mean that you should rush home from your honeymoon to thank your aunt for that snazzy new espresso machine, but they should be sent out in a timely fashion. What exactly does that mean? Well, if you receive a gift before your wedding – for something like a bridal shower or an early wedding gift – send out your thank-you note no later than three weeks after it’s received. If you’ve received your gift on your wedding day, you’ve got a little bit more wiggle room (your guests understand that you’re busy). Approximately three months is the rule of thumb, but don’t put it off for too long.

    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

  31. The great thing about Costco is it always seems to pull out some super deals just when you need them. Like a play kitchen for less than $150! And since you’re likely there anyway to stock up on toilet paper, bulk containers of cheese, and maybe a ham for a holiday dinner, you might as well grab a few toys while you’re at it. I don’t know how Santa operates in your house, but at mine, Kris Kringle is always looking for a discount (which is all the more reason to lend him a hand by shopping at Costco this holiday season). If not for financial reasons, then do it for the Trolls World Tour Poppy Light and Sound Coin Bank. You know that’s going to blow your kid’s mind (even if it blows out your eardrums). It is, of course, still a simulator. While the likes of a scoring system showcase how it borrows from conventional gaming, Train Sim World 2020 is studiously devoted to realism, from the handling of the trains and their operation to the carefully reproduced stations and sternly implemented timetables. There’s personality in there for sure; this is a release that stands out as refreshingly unconcerned by game design fashion, and is proudly unashamed in its enthusiasm for railways. The studio’s effort is sincere in tone and largely sober in presentation, but the passion for trains always bubbles near the surface, and is rather beguiling.

  32. Have you ever considered writing an ebook or guest authoring
    on other blogs? I have a blog centered on the same ideas you

  33. To be fair, the reason why I am recommending google chrome as one of the best browsers for flash games is because it has a built-in flash since forever. It requires little resources so it makes the performance speed and stable. Thanks! Despite the unusually lengthy preparation gap, it is still no less significant of a loss to the games industry. Flash Player has been a hallmark of a gaming generation since its inception in 1996, being used to create millions of animations, games, and other various programs. It’s hard not to feel grief over its eventual demise at the hands of emerging technology that is better integrated but ceases to have the haphazardly irregular charm that Flash does. Hall of Fame I love playing this game but have experienced quite a few issues as of late. 1.) I am currently experiencing difficulty in accessing the game from my home screen. For example, the game will act as though it is loading and then closes out. 2.) If I win a game, I am not awarded all if the points. Fixing those two issues would greatly improve this wonderful game; especially when I am unable to play due to the game not loading.
