In the age of impersonal emails, texts and “likes” on Facebook, writing a thank you note is making a welcome comeback! Not sure where to start with your wedding thank you notes? Here are a few tips on where to start:
Keep It Brief
Don’t stress about making your thank you note lengthy and drawn out. The great thing is that it is a note – therefore, in itself it’s meant to be short and sweet.
Timing is Important
Don’t wait too long to send out thank you notes. The sooner the better! You want to make sure you remember the details and the sooner you write it the fresher it will be on your mind.
Make It Unique
The most challenging part about writing a good thank you note is making it unique. It can be hard to write a well thought out note when you simply received money. But, there is always a way to spin the verbiage to make it seem personal, even if the gift was not.
Here is an example of a thank you note for a monetary gift:
Dear Aunt Nancy,
Thank you so much for the generous gift! Tom and I truly appreciate it. We plan to take use the money towards our honeymoon. There was a fun excursion that we wanted to go on and your generous gift will go a long way to helping us do that!
It Doesn’t Have To Be Fancy
The card itself doesn’t have to be expensive. The most important thing is that you show your gratitude. Writing a heart-felt letter is so much better than any fancy paper.
