"Better than what I expected!!"
"Loved our wedding thank you's. Decent price, easy to design, good quality and got them fairly quickly. Thanks Shutterfly!"
"Very good quality"
"I love shutterfly! These cards were of excellent quality, the pictures turned out amazing, and the envelopes are even great! I would recommend this product to anyone whom needs a card or cards for any occasion! Best I have seen yet!"
"I created these blank greeting cards out of my own illustration hand drawn and scanned from my children's book. I send these cards out to thank people who buy my book which supports a local charity. The quality is excellent, the colors are bright and the envelope and card are sturdy. I am happy to send out these high quality, beautiful cards to my generous donors and will continue to create more!"
Your wedding was an amazing event enjoyed by all and now it's time to write the thank you cards. You can choose cards which fit the theme of your wedding or use some simple, elegant silver thank you cards. Whichever you use, you can save yourself time with these little tips.
Everyone expects that you won't be writing thank you notes while on your honeymoon, so you do have some time before these cards will be expected. Taking your time means you have the opportunity to write something personal to each person.
You'll have the guest book and any other list for gifts which, hopefully, your bridal party put together. Check the two lists together and see if someone who came is missing a gift entry. Take some time to verify whether or not there was a gift. You should still send a card at least thanking them for attending.
To avoid redoing multiple cards, you can use a computer document to write up some rough drafts. This will also help get your creative juices flowing to write nice, personal messages to your friends and family. If you're struggling to write personal messages for everyone, then the rough draft stage is also a good time to come up with a few variations on a formal thank you.
Most projects go quicker when two people do them instead of one. You and your spouse can divide the list and both write notes, or you can divide the tasks so that one person is handling the address labels and stamps while another writes.
Thanking your guests and bridal party after your wedding is a definite must for proper etiquette. With some planning and maybe a little help, you can get your cards out in a timely manner to show how much you appreciate everyone's help and involvement in your special day. Whether you choose gold or silver thank you cards, you can further customize them online with photos and decorations.
