Wedding thank you card wording examples

Writing thank you cards might seem like a daunting task, but it’s not as difficult as it might seem!

According to etiquette expert Elaine Swann, your thank you note should have 3 simple elements; “You should say thank you, name the gift and say something about the gift- that’s it!”

We’ve compiled a list of tips to make your card writing process even easier-

  1. Start right away! Putting them off will result in an overwhelming task to deal with later on. The sooner you get to them, the sooner you can mail them!
  2. Share the workload! Divvy up this task with your partner and split the recipients based on who knows the guest better!
  3. Have a system- make sure you take down notes of who sent each gift to avoid mixing up or losing the sender's info.

We hope these little tips help streamline your thank you card writing process! If you are still stuck, we have included some example thank you card wording below:
