Wedding thank you wording – sample thank you notes
Thank you notes are a must-do for every wedding gift you receive. Before you start opening gift boxes, find the list and record each gift next to the giver’s name and address.
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.
The main thing is to get your thank you notes written and sent as promptly as possible. They should be hand written, but they don’t have to be cards. They can be written on those little cards that say “Thank You” on the front but are blank inside, but ordinary note paper would be OK too.
