So you recently had your bridal shower and you need to send out Thank You cards, but you are not sure when to send them. Often times, family members and friends give the bride-to-be so many gifts, it can be overwhelming. No matter how you are feeling after your bridal shower, take your time opening each gift and finding a place for it. When you feel ready, start writing personalized Thank You cards to each person who attended your shower. Your guests will appreciate your genuine note and thankfulness for the gifts.
How to Write a Great Bridal Shower Thank You Card
When to Send Your Thank You Card
There’s no official deadline for sending a Thank You card for a bridal shower – however, it should be sent at some point before your actual wedding day. Most times, brides have them in the mail 2-3 weeks after their shower. Make sure not to procrastinate too long or your guests will start to wonder if you enjoyed the gifts they gave you.
What to Write
Keep your Thank You cards short, sweet, and to the point. Address the giver, “Dear Aunt Jeanne”, offer thanks and appreciation for the gift, “Thank you for the Blue China set, it looks great in my dining room!”. Then sign your name and your fiancé’s. That’s it!
Keeping Track of Gifts
For each gift you receive, make a list of the items you get and who it’s from. This list will come in handy for writing your Thank You cards. Many times, assigning your Maid of Honor to write down gifts as you open them at your shower, is helpful.
Thank You Card Supplies
You need Thank You cards, stamps, a pen, and addresses. Choose cards that are styled to your wedding’s theme or choose just a generic Thank You card.
