Wedding Etiquette: Thank You Cards

Are thank you cards are going out of fashion? I hope not; a big Thank You should never go out of fashion!

Proper wedding etiquette states that you should send out thank you cards within 2 months of the wedding.

Check out this article from our friends at Jam Paper for information on how to address your thank you cards and thank you card wording examples.

The biggest mistake people make when writing their thank you’s is sending out generic thank you cards. Couples should take the time to thank those who attended in a personal way, just like your guests took the time to attend your wedding. Handwrite your cards if possible, as this always offers an extra personal touch.

Lastly, it’s not JUST the Bride's job to write the thank you’s. If the bride is writing the card, she should mention the groom by name in the thank you note and sign her name to the note. If the groom is writing, he should mention the bride by name in the note and sign his name. If neither name is mentioned in the note, it is signed with both names regardless of who is writing the thank you.
