Your Wedding “Thank You” Notes Should Be Written to Perfection

So many guests, friends and family alike, have gathered from near and far to celebrate your big day with you! You have all enjoyed a great meal, delicious cake and then you jetted off onto your honeymoon. After returning, you have unpacked your suitcases, and opened all of your lovely gifts, so now it is time to sit down and write the perfect “thank you” notes. 

However, are you aware of how you should prepare your “thank you” notes?

Here at I Thee Wed, it is our goal to assist you in creating the wedding of your dreams. That’s why we have gathered some excellent tips to help you create the perfect wedding “thank you” notes. If you are curious to learn more, be sure to continue reading:

·         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.

While wedding planning may seem overwhelming, it certainly doesn’t have to be! Here at I Thee Wed, we offer quality wedding planning services that are sure to create your big day to stand out from the rest.

Does a "Day-Of Coordinator" only show up on the wedding day?

"I've done all my own planning and want a "day-of" coordinator but can't find one who will show up on the wedding day only !  Why?" There's probably a lot of confusion amongst engaged couples because of the term "day-of" coordinator. If you end up speaking to someone who says they will only show up on the wedding day and save you lots of money because of it, please stay clear of them! Many wedding planners may label their coordination as "day-of" wedding coordination, but there is far more involved than just showing up on the wedding day when it comes to a professional wedding planner who knows what she/he is doing. Photo Credit: Estes Images Here are some reasons why a wedding coordinator shouldn't show up  only  on the wedding day: Many planners begin their coordination services 4-8 weeks out because many venues request the wedding day timeline one month prior. A 1 1/2 to 2 hour timeline meeting typically kicks off

A Venue Coordinator vs. A Wedding Coordinator

Unfortunately, things haven't changed much in the wedding industry regarding the confusion between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Couples still seem very confused between these two roles and end up not hiring a wedding coordinator after speaking with their venue. Their day ends up in disappointment because they assumed they would have that one, key person to go to and rely on for their entire wedding day. Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.

Ask if they will be w
