When To Send Thank You Cards

When To Send Thank You Cards

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have a year to send thank you cards after a wedding. That was the norm ages ago, but now it’s much shorter: we recommend sending thank you notes no later than three months after your wedding. (Wondering about bridal shower thank you’s? Send them right away — within a few weeks of the event.)

Important Tip

Write a hand-written note inside the thank you card. First, thank the guest for attending your wedding. Also be sure to mention a gift given. If the guest gave cash as a gift, mention ‘gift of money’ rather than mentioning the amount. You can also mention how you intend to use the money. People love when you’re specific and genuine.

Sending personalized thank you cards will make your notes stand out. Use your wedding theme (and consider ordering when you buy your invitations to save money AND time). Here are a few pretty personalized options we spotted at Grand Designs by Joanna:
