He proposed, you’ve said yes, you’ve planned, you’ve prepped, you’ve walked down the aisle, you’ve honeymooned and now it’s time for the final step, the thank-you cards.
More often than not this is viewed as a daunting and overwhelming task. So as a favour to all newly weds we’ve created the Thank You Card Etiquette 101. Combine these rules with our technology, which makes personalizing and sending cards a cinch, and you’ll be wishing all things wedding were this simple.
Thank you cards must be sent within 3 months of the wedding, this may sound like plenty of time but don’t leave it to the last minute. Always keep a record of who gifted what. Each note should be personalized and knowing who gave what, will help you write the perfect tailored note which mentions specific gifts with ease.
Neatness and legibility count. Don’t smudge, blot or cross words out. Use only blue or black ink. If you really don’t like your handwriting, don’t worry, using our site you can type your message and it will appear as if you’ve handwritten the message yourself.
If you receive multiple gifts from the same person, for example, a wedding shower gift and a wedding gift, you must write a separate thank you note for each gift. Just remember thank you cards for shower gifts should be mailed within two to three weeks of receiving them.
Don’t forget to write a thoughtful thank you to each individual that stood by your side on the big day and made up your wedding party.
Lastly, high-quality card stock goes a long way. A beautifully designed card that feels nice in your hands is something to hold on to and look at over-and-over triggering memories of that special day. This is why at Gift in Time we use only premium card stock, decorated with images designed by artists from around the globe. Each artist discerningly hand-selected by our team.
And perhaps the best thing about sending your thank you cards through Gift in Time is that without ever sacrificing quality, thoughtfulness or personalization, you’re not required to leave the comforts of your home, not even to post them. That’s right, all your wedding thank you cards can be written and mailed without even hitting pause on your favourite TV show.
