1. Get organized: Use your invitation guest list as a way to document gifts received and as a checklist to track written thank you notes. Don’t forget to choose custom stationery that reflects your personality. This is a great opportunity to utilize your NEWLY married monogram!
2. Share the work: You’re a married couple now, so tackle this first task as newlyweds together. It will not only make that stack of thank you’s less overwhelming, but it gives you an opportunity to spend time together.
3. Be Personal: No need to be formal when writing your thank you cards. In order for the thank you to be heartfelt, be conversational in your writing. You can tie in a memorable part of the wedding or explain how you used or plan to use the wedding gift. Don’t mention the dollar amount for monetary gifts, however it’s always a nice gesture to tell guests how you plan on spending the money. For example, “Thank you SO much for your generous and thoughtful gift! We can’t wait to use our new crock pot and hope you will join us at a future dinner party!” OR “Thank you for attending our wedding day. It means SO much to us that you were able to be there and share in our celebration!”

4. Handwrite your thank you notes, be legible and proofread to check for errors.

5. Attempting to write all of your thank-you notes in one sitting is not a good idea. It’s possible that your guests will see poor penmanship and even more mistakes, such as misspellings and poor grammar. Set realistic goals and keep things in perspective by writing about ten thank you cards a night.

Remember, guests want to feel that you went the extra mile for them, after all, they took time out of their lives for you. Authentic and heartfelt thank you cards can go a long way. Happy writing!
