The Timing of a Thank You

by admin on June 18, 2013 in Purpose, Thank You with No Comments

With wedding gifts, some brides and grooms don’t open them until their wedding, in which case they wouldn’t write thank you notes, even for gifts received months before the wedding, until after they are back from their honeymoon. Guests will be patient and will accept the rule of thumb that brides and grooms have a year to write all of their wedding gift thank you notes.

But do keep in mind what a thank you note is for. It is a note of gratitude that not only helps to keep you humble and aware of your blessings, but it is also an opportunity to tell your guests that you appreciate them—not just their gifts, but also them. It’s a sort of love letter.

In Lieu of a Thank You Gift

by admin on July 26, 2012 in Budget, Gifts and Favors, Guest List, Thank You with No Comments

What is the most meaningful cause to you and your fiancé? Why not donate a small sum per guest as a token of thanks. Tell them that in lieu of a thank you gift you are donating on their behalf to a cause close to your hearts, and then invite them to care about that cause as you offer an explanation of what it means to you and how you got involved.

Thank You Letters to Mom and Dad

by admin on June 13, 2011 in Family, Gifts and Favors, Thank You, Uncategorized with 1 Comment

Each parent got his and her own note. Simply a jotting of memories, appreciation, (I might have even thrown in an apology or two in there), affirmations, and wishes slipped under their door during sleeping hours. A note to let them know that they were deeply loved and appreciated, not just for the wedding they were about to give me, but for the life and the upbringing that they had offered me.

It cost me nothing except for the stationery, the time, and the price of reflection, yet it was one of the most valuable gifts I could have given (for my parents, hopefully, but for me, absolutely).

What To Say in a Thank You Note

by admin on May 18, 2011 in Thank You with No Comments

The thank you note is not about you and it’s not about the gift; it’s about honoring your guest. If you get stuck, write with that in mind. If you don’t like the gift, focus on your appreciation for the person. If you don’t know the person, focus on the gift and tell them you hope to get to know them in the future.
