So, you’re finally hitched. Congrats, friend! Just when you thought you had crossed the planning finish line, we’re here to remind you that you have one final (and, frankly, necessary) planning task: send those wedding thank you cards. Like for real.
Wedding Thank You Card Etiquette
Get Organized: Since you already sent wedding invites out, chances are you already have physical addresses for your guests compiled (win!) but there are a few more folks that should be added to the list of recipients. Like your wedding party (if you had one), wedding vendors and anyone that sent a gift, even if they couldn’t attend the wedding.
Be Timely: We’ve all heard that you have a year to send thank you cards post-wedding, but realistically, most folks expect a thank you in the mail 2-3 months after the wedding. (Pro tip: if you receive any gifts prior to your wedding, start writing your notes of gratitude then. Post-wedding you will thank yourself later)
Get Personal: It’s all about the details here. Your dream stand mixer that Aunt Joann gifted you? Let her know all the things you and your betrothed will be cooking up in the kitchen for years to come. Your friend that helped you through planning with their undivided support and attention? Let your bestie know how much you appreciated it. Now is the time to share your (detailed) gratitude for your people.
We know you just worked your butt off planning an amazing event and now we’re asking you to write a whole bunch of thank you cards to your nearest and dearest.
