Congrats! You did the dang thing! I hope you are enjoying your happily ever after! Now, you’re probably enjoying all the thoughtful gifts your wedding guests brought or sent you. It’s time to write your Thank You Cards! Remember, it’s a note, not a letter. By using a handful of short, well-crafted lines, you’ll be done with your notes in no time! Here are some examples from https://www.americangreetings.com/inspiration/what-to-write/thank-you-messages-wedding.
ALWAYS make sure you write a personable note. If you write a generic note to all your guests, they could be offended that you did not acknowledge their thoughtful gift
Write your Thank You cards no later than 3 months after your wedding. Not only will gifts be fresh on your mind, but it will give your guests that special feeling they had for your wedding
Be thoughtful and Grateful!
