• {Planning Tips} Writing Your Thank You Notes: 5 Tips + Advice

    On top of all of your other wedding planning, one of the most important things to remember is sending thank you notes to your guests and gift-givers.  Imbue You I Do is sharing 5 tips for tackling the thank you’s.
    After a romantic wedding and blissful honeymoon, having to write a stack of thank you notes can just seem like a splash of cold water.  But you have to thank the family and friends whose gifts will make your new married life special. Luckily, a few simple steps can keep this from feeling overwhelming.
    1. Keep that List. Dust off your wedding invitation address list, you know the one that took forever to pull together. And simply add a column for gift and a place for a check mark. Here you’ll write down or type in the details of the gift.
    2. Make a Space. Do yourself a favor and keep a dedicated space for this task. A desk or corner of the kitchen table will do. The important thing is to keep everything within arms reach.

     

    So, if you’re right handed, I suggest keeping:

    1. your list on the left

     

    • thank you cards in the middle where you sit with envelopes next to them on the right

     

     

    • pens where your right hand is

     

     

    • stamps on the top left or right depending on how it’s easiest for you to grab them to place on your envelope

     

     

    • a clear place next to you, to put your completed stamped notes

     

    This will become your thank you card assembly line…and it will make your note writing lightning fast.
     3. Give It a Rest. Seriously, don’t try to do it all in one go, or in one wild thank you writing weekend. Aim to do 4 to 6 notes at a time. And then walk away.  Not only will you feel better, you’ll make fewer mistakes…and who wants to do these twice?
    4. Divide and Conquer. You should both work on thank you notes, since you’re aiming to send all your notes within 6 weeks of your wedding.  One simple way to do this is for you to take your family and friends, and for your spouse to do the same. Agree ahead of time, and split the list so there’s no confusion, or double notes.
     5. Write and Repeat. Yes, thank you notes should be personal and heartfelt. But that doesn’t mean you have to reinvent the wheel each time you write one.
    So come up with a few thank you note templates ahead of time. Proof and spell check these thoroughly. Feel free to add a more personal sentence or two for dear friends and close family.
    No one compares thank you notes, so your guests will never know. And you’ll be done faster.
