How To Write The Perfect Wedding Gift Thank You Note
Here's a no-fail thank you script to use for wedding gifts:
Thanking your friends and family for sending you a wedding gift is really non-negotiable, but what do you say on your card which sounds authentic?
If you have a large wedding, you're likely to have quite a few guests and therefore quite a few gifts to express your heartfelt gratitude for, so how can you manage to write a thank you card to all of them?
You could, in theory, use EXACTLY THE SAME WORDING on everyone’s thank you cards – and no-one would be the wiser! It might take you only a quarter of the time, but it wouldn’t be particularly personal, would it?
If you use gift registries you could always mention how much you’re looking forward to using the gift they bought off your list (that you chose, don’t forget – so there could be a story behind why you selected it) and how you’ll be thinking of them when you use it.
Dear [guest name],
We were so delighted to see you at our wedding and we were thrilled that you gave us the [espresso machine/silverware/luggage/orchid candle holders etc] we love so much.
It was so lovely of you and we will think of you when we [drink coffee/have a dinner party/go on holidays/eat outside etc].
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Of course, you might not want to use this format if they gave you bedsheets.
