The summer of weddings is almost over – just one more on Labor Day weekend! After that beautiful day there’s an amazing honeymoon, and then…reality. It’s so much fun to start a new life together, but there’s also so many things to do! Move your stuff, set up a new house, change your last name, adjust to life together, and…
write thank you cards.
This can make even the calmest of brides shudder. Writing thank you cards can be such a daunting task! The good news is: it doesn’t have to be. Here’s some etiquette & tips to make it go smoothly.
Make it personal
It’s easy to start writing generic comments in everyone’s cards because you have so many to do, but it means SO much more when you actually put just a little bit of personalization in the cards. Take this for example:
Simple. Effective. But – boring. It’s obvious that not a ton of time or thought went into this card. Wouldn’t you rather receive this card?:
Aunt Sally will feel so touched when she reads that card because it’s personalized. Those few extra minutes make a world of difference!
Do not wait until the last minute (proper etiquette says you should wait no more than 6-8 weeks after your wedding). Beginning right away, tackle just a few cards a night. Make it a little tradition with your new husband. It’s fun to do things together, and writing thank you cards shouldn’t be such a drag! Make it fun – turn on some music, drink a glass of wine, and reminisce together about your awesome wedding!
Make it CUTE
There are SO many options out there for thank you cards – and one of the best sources I found was Wedding Paper Divas. They can personalize cards with pictures from your wedding – or with your new last name! The possibilities are seriously endless with them – you can personalize them in thousands of different ways! I wish I had these when I got married – I just love the photo concept.
The good news is, you don’t have to sacrifice cute thank you cards just because your wedding has come and gone. I got these super cute thank you cards, and I am in love with them! The quality is great, and the watercolor flowers are beautiful:
So remember: make it PERSONAL, make TIME, and make it CUTE!
