0775_081112_ShepardYour wedding has sadly come to an end — thankfully your memories live on through your professional wedding photos and video — but you’re not done yet. Remember you still have to write thank you notes to your guests. Don’t fret – these tips and thank you word samples will make this chore an easy wedding task.

What’s Expected

Wedding etiquette states that you should send each guest a handwritten note of thanks. You may choose to do so in a thank you card, on a postcard or in a letter. In general, guests will expect your thank you to arrive within two months of the wedding date.

Gifts vs. money

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, down-payment on car or house, purchase of a BBQ, etc. would be more appropriate.

Gifts you dislike

Regardless of the gift, a thank you note is required. It is also frowned upon to request a return receipt. Most stores will give you a credit to exchange unwanted items.

Things to include

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

Dearest Aunt Jane,

Thank you for the beautiful crystal candle holders.

Mike and I are looking forward to having them on our dinner table.

We hope that you and Uncle Joe will join us for a meal once we are settled into our new home.

I want to thank you for your generous wedding gift. We plan on using it towards a deck for our new home. When it’s complete, we hope you can join us for a barbeque. It was fantastic to see you at the wedding, and Becky and I hope to see you soon.
