With your big day approaching, it’s normal to feel a little overwhelmed and fretful at the same time to accomplish everything as soon as possible. The irony is – your job doesn’t end with you saying ‘I do’; the wedding stress continues even after the wedding. After all, you are still left with the most taxing task of writing those thank you notes to your guests.
Writing thank you notes can be a pretty boring chore. Most couples find it a challenging task, especially when they want to enjoy their newlywed status. That is the reason the task continues for weeks or sometimes, even months. Moreover, you cannot simply avoid writing thank you notes or convey gratitude via Facebook to your guests – it is against wedding etiquette. Email or phone call is again not a very feasible way to convey gratitude; these ways cannot communicate your feelings the right way.
The task of writing thank you notes seems to be overly daunting to most couples and if you also happen to be one of them, here are wedding thank you message wordings for you.
Ready for the ride?
Let’s get started…..
But, before we move to the topic, here are some of the tips to make the completion of the task less taxing:
- The first step is to get your guest list printed along with the addresses. Now pen down who has given you what as you unfurl your presents. If you have received any gifts before your wedding, you’ll need to send out the thank you notes for them within two weeks of receiving the gifts. And if you’ve received gifts on your wedding day, you have a month to write thank you notes for them.
- The next step is to get organized. Of course, you don’t need to write all of them in one sitting. The best way is to write 15-20 thank you notes each day. Also, dedicate a particular time to write thank-you notes, for instance, before going to bed.
- Use your creativity. You don’t need to follow the same old traditions of writing thank you notes with black or blue pens on the same old ivory paper. Let your creativity flow, jazz it up with some unique elements. Maybe you can write thank you notes in accordance with your wedding theme.
- Let your feelings flow. Your thank-you notes should not sound formal or written for the sake of writing. The wedding thank you message wordings should be personal and straight from your heart. The receiver should be able to feel the warmth. Do talk about the gift you have received in the note and tell how you plan to use it. Finally, compliment the giver for the gift to make a personal connection and say thanks again.
- If you have received money as a gift at your wedding, mention in the note how you plan to spend the money.
- Immediately place a checkmark against the thank you note you’re done writing with. This way, you can keep track of all the people you have written to.
Hope these tips help you write meaningful and thoughtful thank you notes to your wedding guests. Now, take a look at the different wedding thank message wording….
Here we go…..
The first thing that you have to keep in mind while writing thank-you notes is that each note is different. Yes, you’re not going to write the same, not for all. There will be people who you’ll thank for their gifts, and others you’ll thank for helping you make your wedding day marvelous.
