Tips for writing the Thank You notes
A lot of people struggle with what the note should say/how much you should say and what you shouldn't say. I got this email of tips in my inbox the other day and thought I'd share it w/ you gals in hopes that it helps some of you with your Thank You notes! :)
What should the message say?
You don't need to write a lot -- four or five sentences will suffice -- as long as what you do express is heartfelt. Identify the gift, say why you appreciate it, why it has a personal meaning for you, and how you plan to use it. If the giver came to the wedding, especially from a distance, also include a sentence thanking him for attending: "Thank you for coming to our wedding. Your presence made our day extra-special. David and I love the coffee maker. We've used it every day since we got back from our honeymoon. Thanks so much." For cash gifts, you need not mention the dollar amount, but it's a nice touch to say how you plan to spend the money.
