One of the most common faux pas committed by brides is the failure to say thank you in a timely manner.
According to The Emily Post Institute, thank you notes should be written as soon as possible and thank you’s for wedding gifts should be written within three months of the gift’s receipt.
Some more of our favorites:
Lifeguard press makes it easy to get your favorite Jonathan Adler or Lilly Pulitzer notecards customized. Find your favorite print, then just add your monogram to the front. Try getting your monogram as a couple for thank you’s after the wedding.
There is something timeless about an ivory embossed notecard. Paired with your monogram, this makes for a perfect thank you. The Stationary Studio has these perfectly simply, fold over notecards. Great idea to go with a shower gift? I think so too.
Things to remember when writing a Thank You:
– Make it timely.
– Make it sincere. Try to keep some variations to each thank you so recipients do not feel like it is a cookie cutter thank you.
– Tell the recipient how you will use their gift.
– Try to make the thank you from the bride and groom by saying things like, “I cannot wait to try out some new recipes in our crock-pot. Kyle is excited that this will keep his clean-up duty easy!”
– Make it neat. Only write a few cards per day to keep your writing from getting sloppy.
– If applicable, include thanks for attending the wedding.
