Sample Wedding Thank You Notes Wording

"Write a Heartfelt Thank You Message for Wedding Gifts"

Composing your wedding thank you notes; an impossible task you might think.

Finding the right thank you wording that is personal and shows your gratitude might not prove to be an easy one. But wedding etiquette states that your wedding gift thank you notes should be written and sent out promptly. Ideally no later than 4 weeks after the wedding.  You don't want your guests to think you've forgotten! 

Wedding Gift Thank You Notes Time Saving Tips And Ideas

1. Keep a track of every gift as it arrives. Purchase a book and write down name of gift, a description and who gave it. Or set up an excel spreadsheet on your computer to record the details.

2. Pre-address your thank you note envelopes when you address your wedding invitations.

3. If you are very organized, write your wedding thank you notes on arrival of gifts.

How many thank you notes for wedding gifts must you write? 50, 100, 200 it doesn't matter. Relatives, friends neighbours and work colleagues all took the time to choose personal gifts and helped to share in one of your biggest celebrations.

To help you with the looming task of writing wedding gift thank you notes, I have included: lots of sample thank you notes, thank you verses and sayings for specific wedding gifts, thank you for wedding money, wedding gift vouchers or for simply attending the wedding.

So without further ado, get your stationery, pen, your list of who gave what, a glass of wine and get started.

You won't get them all done at once so set yourself a limit of maybe 5 -10  thank you notes a day.
