Writing and sending a wedding thank you card is not a simple task. The thank-you card should be written with exceptional etiquette in mind, and also delivered to the recipients in good time. Ideally, you should also write the thank-you note politely to express to your guests how grateful you are for their support during your big day.

A thank you note should be written to everyone who made an impact on your wedding, and not just the people who gave you gifts. For instance, your family members who were present in your engagement party, all deserve a thank you note. Generally, the list of the people you have to write a thank-you note for is long, and you have to consider some key factors when sending the cards. We have outlined the factors you need to consider below.

The Guests Addresses

The first factor you have to consider is the addresses of the people you need to thank. It may not be as easy as it seems, because many people don’t have a physical address book today. Therefore, you may have to search for the addresses of the people you want to thank.

An efficient and fast way of collecting all the addresses is by using postable services. Generally, you should include all the appropriate guests’ addresses because a thank you note is a polite and customary way of saying you are grateful.

Make a Precise List of The People to Thank

After getting all the appropriate addresses, the next thing you will have to do is compile a list of the guests to send the cards. Primarily, it would be best if you outlined the reasons for thanking them. For instance, you can thank them for how they have supported you from the time you got engaged all through to the time of post-wedding.

Additionally, you should also include the people who sent you gifts, but they did not attend your wedding for some reason. Sending wedding thank you cards is both polite and customary. Therefore, make a comprehensive list without living anyone out.

Send The Notes at The Right Time

You should ensure that you send the thank you notes on a good time. Sending the notes after three months would not make the impact you want. Hence, send the thank you notes maybe two weeks after your post-wedding and honeymoon.

Sending the gift cards early also enough makes the gift-givers feel a more immediate appreciation, and that you liked their gift.

While sending thank-you notes may be exhausting, if you do it in an organized manner, it will be much more comfortable and stress-free. Be sure to consider the key factors we have listed above to have a smooth ride while sending the thank you notes.
