This question has been asked of us over and over by newly wed couples who are trying to find just the right way to say “thank you” to the people that have given gifts or money to start them on the way to a wonderful new life. The most important thing to remember : Say Thank You.
Be thoughtful, mention the gift specifically, and some direct comment of what you will do with this item. For example: Aunt Kim, thank you so much for the fondue pot. We look forward to using it at our home warming party. Or Uncle Bob, thank you so much for the money. We will put it toward the house we are saving for.
Or Grandma, thank you so much for coming to our wedding. We know you traveled far and we enjoyed being together as a family again. Keep it short and sweet yet vivid and complete.
Be sure to use your friendly name for them: Uncle Bob, is much better than Robert Kensington. Grandma, is so much more friendly than Mrs. Rosalie Huff.
If you are creative and a clear writer, create a verse to put at the top of the card. “Thank you for being a special part of our family/friendship circle and for sharing in our wedding day.” Always personalize this verse with a handwritten note.
If you are religious, don�t forget to say it – You might think of it as a prayer you might say at bedtime or a grace before a meal. “God has blessed us with a loving family.”
If you would like to share a photo from your wedding, honeymoon or a creative photo of the two of you, making a photo postcard can be a personal blend of a memory photo and a thank you all in one.
Remember to get your thank you cards mailed within 2-3 months of your wedding.
Thank you for all the thoughtful gifts and prayers
Our sincere thanks for your good wishes and thoughtful gift.
Thank you for helping to make our day very special
Thank you for sharing in our joy, for keeping us in your prayers, and for giving us a gift of love.
You have been such an important part of our lives. We are so thankful for your generosity.
We are reminded of how little we see each other and that we should take the time throughout the year to be together as a family.
