Giveaway: Win a Vintage Style Return Stamp

Want to save time and frustration? Thanks to our friend Nicci of Paper Street Press, now’s your chance! She’s giving away a vintage style return address stamp to one lucky reader. The winner of this stamp will enjoy more time to peruse Pinterest or marathon the last few episodes of Scandal, since she won’t be buried under wedding envelopes trying to write out her address two hundred times. Plus, after the honeymoon, she will enjoy the bliss that comes with having a return stamp. Can you imagine how easy those thank-you cards will be to write? A piece of cake.

Here’s a thank you card I spied in Nicci’s shop-I thought you’d like it, too. See? Notice the vintage style return stamp on it? Pure perfection.

Vintage Style Return Stamp on Thank You Cards

I swear, you guys, my address stamp is my latest and greatest purchase. I bought one last year and I feel like, where have you been all my life? Not only is it a time-saver, but it makes all of my mail look so polished… right down to the water bill. Hey, stamping is fun; you’ll see. You’ll want to stamp all of the things. I like to think the water company appreciates it, right? Maybe not. Oh well.

Anyways, I digress. Let’s get down to business + give one of these away!

Vintage Style Return Address Stamp

Nicci tells us, “This retro return address stamp was inspired by posters found in Grandpa’s attic and designed just for you!”

When To Send Thank You Cards after the Wedding

Even when wedding planning is over, there’s still one important task on your to-do list: sending thank you cards. If you’re wondering when to send thank you cards after the wedding, we’re here to help! Read on to find out more, get a few thank you card writing tips, and enter for a chance to win FREE thank you cards from Grand Designs by Joanna to get you started!

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:
