Today on Small talk. Big day we’re talking thank you notes. Here are a few easy tips that won’t leave your hand in cramps.
Set up a System! – There is nothing more embarrassing than sending a thank you note twice, or worse, not at all! So get yourself organized. Use a spreadsheet, or a list in a notebook – track the guest, the address, the gift and mark whether a thank you note was sent. Not just written but actually mailed.
Make it Personal – Email just doesn’t cut it. Take the time to hand-write a note and make each one personal.
- Order your stationery in advance so you can write notes as gifts arrive. This helps lighten your load later on and no one is left waiting for a year to hear from you.
- Pro-tip: DO NOT use your new monogram before the wedding. It’s bad luck!
Thank the Gift-less Guest – What if a guest didn’t bring a gift? No biggie. But they still deserve a thank you note. Thank them for attending the wedding and helping to celebrate your day.
I promise, it’s not as bad as it seems. It can actually be a really fun way to relive special moments and connect with loved ones!
