What Should I Write In My Wedding Thank You Cards?

“What should I write in my wedding thank you cards?” is a question for many brides. What to write for your Save The Dates, so this week we are answering your questions about the wedding thank you cards.


Who Do I Have To Send A Wedding Thank You Card?

Wedding etiquette states that you should send each guest a handwritten note of thanks. Your note should specify the gift, give thanks and share how you intend to use the item. If the gift was money, you do not have to specify the dollar amount, but again, you should indicate how you will spend the money – and not on paying for post-wedding bills. The giver has presented you the gift of money for your life moving forward so the purpose of setting up your new home, downpayment on car or house, purchase of a BBQ, etc. would be more appropriate.

When Should I Send My Wedding Thank You Cards?

In general, guests will expect your thank you to arrive within two months of the wedding date. While it is usually signed by the couple, the thank you card may be written by the bride or groom.

What Should I Write In My Wedding Thank You Cards?

Your thank you note should include the name of the giver, the gift and how it will be used and your genuine thanks. You may also make mention of your appreciation of their extra help, long travel or any other special things the giver did for your wedding day.

If you are at a loss for words, the following wedding thank you sample wordings may be just what you need to get you started.

We sincerely thank you for your love and support. We couldn’t be more blessed having friends and family like you in our lives and sharing in this beautiful time in our lives.

We would like to thank you for celebrating our joy and sharing our love. You will always be part of our fairy tale. Your generosity and kindness are sincerely appreciated. Dreams do come true.

“Gratitude – like love – lives and grows in our hearts.” Thank you for being part of our wedding day!

Our wedding day was special because we were blessed surrounded by the people we love. Your thoughtfulness and support are truly appreciated. Thank you for sharing in the start of our new life together.

Our wedding would not have been complete, without the support and love of our family and friends. We sincerely thank you for celebrating our love, sharing our joy and for being a part of our lives!

3 Steps to Building the Ultimate Wedding Package


1. Pick Your Wedding Photographer(s)

Whether you want ultra-creative or classic photos, our professional wedding photographers can deliver whatever kind of aesthetic you’re looking for. Each photographer offers their own unique professional approach to wedding photography, and you can pick the right one for you. The photography is just the start of the ultimate wedding package.

2. Pick Your Wedding Videographer(s)

One of the biggest regrets we hear from the over 25,000 couples we have served is that they didn’t get a professional wedding video made. Don’t let that be your regret! Like our photographers, our videographers can create cinematic wedding videos that spotlight your love. Whatever you’re looking for, our videographers will deliver a wedding video that you’ll be able to enjoy for years and share with future generations.

3. Pick Your Wedding DJ & MC

In order to capture photos and videos of the touching, hilarious and memorable moments at your wedding reception, you’re going to need the right music at the right time. The final piece of the ultimate wedding package, our DJs will bring your wedding celebration to the next level. Pick the music, don’t pick the music, create a “do not play list”, or give us no list at all, we’ll get to know you and your guests and construct a playlist that fits just right. But our DJs do more than just play songs, they bring energy to your wedding with engaging announcements, introductions and more.
