Customize the Classic Monogram Bordered Card with a monogram or colored border that matches your wedding colors
The new wedding dishes have found a home in your kitchen. The wedding photos are on their way. And memories of your blissful honeymoon are fresh in your mind. Now what? Have you written your first wedding thank you note yet?
It might be time to tackle that pile of thank you notes you owe to your family and friends. The simple act of handwriting a thoughtful note will be a meaningful memento to them. They put in a lot of effort to help you celebrate. Taking the time to write a beautiful thank you note speaks volumes about the type of person you are and the kinds of relationships you’ll maintain for the rest of your life.
So, find your favorite pen. Choose some beautiful stationery and consult your gift list. Then start writing.
1. The Basic Format for the Wedding Thank You Note
The typical format for a wedding thank you note usually goes like this:
First line: thank them for the gift–be sure to name it. If it’s money, avoid naming the amount. The words “generous gift” will suffice.
Second line: tell them how you plan to use it, or some way that you admire or appreciate it.
Third line: thank them for their friendship or support or for coming to your event
Close. (Be sure both bride and groom sign each note.)
2. Beyond the Basics
Move beyond these basics when writing to people especially close to you, or those who put extra thought and care into the gift. Perhaps you can keep these people on a separate “short list.” Add a few lines that acknowledge the generosity of parents who footed some of the wedding expenses. Praise the thoughtfulness of an aunt who created a beautiful handmade quilt out of your childhood clothes. Thank a friend who traveled across the country to be there for your big day.
The Sienna Monogram Note features a flowing, elegant monogram. It makes a beautiful wedding thank you note.
3. Add a Small Token
You might also choose to share a small object or additional lines of writing that are meaningful to you. You might tuck in a favorite recipe you discovered at a restaurant on your honeymoon. Include a special quote from a parent’s toast or a lyric from your first dance. Try slipping in seeds of your favorite tree or fruit or vegetable. Perhaps you might slide in a wedding photo of you and the person you are thanking.
4. Choose Lovely Stationery with a Couple’s Monogram
