Today’s Wedding Wednesday post is brought to you by Layla of Simply Savannah Events – thank you Layla for stepping in while I am traipsing around Rome looking for Thanksgiving dinner.

How much time do we have to send out thank you notes for our wedding gifts?
Wedding gifts thank-yous should be sent out within three months of the wedding date or sooner, so be sure to acknowledge immediately to any presents you received before then. Be sure to put the pen and paper soon after you return from the honeymoon, share the writing duties and you’ll have your thank you notes out in no time. (Diane Forden, Editor in Chief of Bridal Guide )

Don’t forget Dodeline can also make your thank you notes to match your wedding invitations! Or if you are looking for some fun thank you’s make sure you look at the Etsy shop.

Sample Wording for Wedding Thank You Cards
Make Writing Thank You Cards Easy By Following These Examples

When writing wedding thank you cards, it’s easy to get stumped on what to say, particularly when you don’t know the person well, or when you just don’t like the wedding gift. Make it easy on yourself by following these samples.

With all of these examples, use the more formal greeting “Dear Mr. Smith” or the more casual greeting “Dear John depending on how well you know them. You can also adapt the closing accordingly, e.g. “Sincerely,” “With love,” “Best Wishes,” and the like.

A thank you card to a close friend or relative:

Dear Aunt Ann and Uncle Joe,
Thank you so much for the gorgeous lace tablecloth! It is beautiful and
we were both incredibly touched that you gave us this family heirloom. It was wonderful, as always, to see you at the wedding – I especially loved jitterbugging with Uncle Joe. I can’t wait to catch up on your news and tell you all about the honeymoon and newly married life.

With love,

Christine


A thank you card to someone you don’t know very well

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Johnson,

Thank you for the beautiful vase that you sent Christine and me as a wedding present. I know we will enjoy it for many years to come. It was wonderful to finally get to meet you at the wedding. We really appreciate that you were able to witness such a happy day for us and our families.

Sincerely yours,

Todd Markham


A thank you card when you’ve received cash or a gift certificate

Use the thank you card to tell the givers how you used it. For example:

Dear Terry and Vicky,

Todd and I wanted to thank you greatly for the check you sent for a wedding gift. We are saving to buy a new car, and your gift will help us reach our goal. We can’t wait to take you for a spin around the neighborhood.

Best wishes,

Christine Markham


A thank you card for an item off of your registry

Dear Jack,

I am writing to thank you for the place setting of china that you so kindly sent for a wedding gift. Todd and I now have a service for eight. I’m sure we’ll use it for years to come. Wedding china is such a thoughtful gift and an instant family heirloom.

Thanks again,

Christine Markham


A thank you card for a donation to a charity

Dear Alice,

Thank you for your thoughtful wedding gift to the ASPCA in our names. As you know, this charity is very dear to both Todd and I; they do such wonderful work for all of the animals in our area, as well as across the country. We can’t imagine a more wonderful present than a donation to such a cause.

With best wishes,

Christine Markham

A thank you card when you don’t like the gift

Dear Mrs. Goreham,

Thank you for the wedding present of the velvet painting of dogs playing poker. It is certainly a unique gift; you are always so thoughtful and generous. It was so nice of you to join us at our wedding, and Christine and I hope to see you soon.

With love,

Todd Markham


A thank you card for someone who sent a gift but wasn’t at the wedding

Dear Mr. Jacobs,

Thank you so much for the gold-plated doodad you sent Christine and me as a wedding gift. It was so thoughtful of you! I’m so sorry that you couldn’t attend the wedding – it was romantic and went just as planned. I’d love to get together soon so you can see the pictures!

Best,

Todd Markham

And with that my friends, let’s go be thankful for everything we have – Happy Thanksgiving!
