· Be prepared. First off, you should be prepared before sitting down and writing your “thank you” notes. It will be much easier when you open your gifts if you have a notebook, this way, you can write down the guest and the gift that they provided, so that you never lose track of what you received and from whom. When writing your “thank you” notes, it is always ideal to personally thank the guest by including the gift within your writing, as this adds personalization and shows that you truly appreciate it.
· Take your time. Most likely, you will have many “thank you” notes to write, so do expect that this should take a great deal of time. If you are personally writing each guest a lovely note, which should be the case, you will want to show them your appreciation with your words. Don’t rush your notes! After all, you didn’t rush your wedding, did you? Also, it is even more special if both you and your partner each write a little note within the card.
· What to write. For some, writing comes naturally. However, for others, writing can be a bit trickier. When it comes to your wedding “thank you” notes though, you won’t be graded on your sentences, but it is still great to write them with proper etiquette. When writing your notes, an easy guide to follow is to first, thank the guest for the specific gift that was received. Second, explain to the guest on how you plan to use the gift. Last, always be sure to thank your guest for attending your big day.
