Thank you!

April 25th, 2011 by     


Thank you notes are extremely important and as a bride who attempts to be organized, I have failed in getting my shower thank yous out in good time.

But in my defense, I’m trying to finish my senior year of college without pulling out my hair (since that is very important for the wedding). But alas, I have written all of my thank you notes and they will be mailed quite soon.

Thank you notes made for my by my wonderful MOH

It is sometimes hard to thank someone for towels or knives or basically anything else aside from saying, “thank you for ____.” But it is possible to approach thank you notes differently. When I wrote my shower notes I kept it short. For example:

Dear Family Member,

Thank you for (kitchen item), Lilac Dude and I look forward to using it in our new home. We hope to make some delicious food in our kitchen thanks to your generosity.

Also, thank you for making the trip out for my bridal shower, it was lovely having family there. We look forward to seeing you soon at our wedding.

Love,

Lilac Bud

Thanking someone you don’t know for sending cash is quite hard! A friend of my soon to be in-laws sent a card with money but couldn’t attend my shower. But after some internet browsing I attacked the thank you note this way:

Dear Friend,

Thank you very much for your generous gift. We plan to use it toward a security deposit for our first home.

I am sorry that you could not be at my bridal shower. But I appreciate you sending such a beautiful card.

Thank you again,

Lilac Bud

    If anyone is eying my thank you notes, my MOH has just started an Etsy shop with a small selection that will be growing. She does custom orders also. You can visit her here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BeautifullyEmbellish

    These are definitely some great suggestions. I’m a little late on my thank you’s also. I’m looking at them right now, as I need to purchase stamps before sending them out. I’m completely against those pre-made thank you cards that all the couple does is sign, without adding any personalization, but as my hand started to cramp, I couldn’t blame them for doing it.

    The thank you notes she gave you were very nice. She is a very talented girl.
