Many overlook the importance of a quality, hand-written thank you note. And wedding "thank you's" should stand no different.
However, no one tells you these puppies take forever... it seems as if it's a bottomless list!
I went old-school in my approach (vs. digital), checking off a master printed spreadsheet when the stamps and letters were licked to ensure no one was overlooked.
-Quality over quantity. Add a personal touch to each and every note and have the husband sign. Hey, he reaps the benefits of the gifts too, no?! I received so many lovely comments on the thoughtful notes and the groom signature.
-Cards. Do you want your wedding photos as your card for guests to remember the night? Ask your photographer if they offer printing as part of your package. Or a simple initial of your new last name is always classic or consider mirroring wedding colors/prints/invitations to match your thank you cards.
-Custom Stamps. Don't forget a custom return address stamp with your new last name or initial. Nearly all paper shops will carry these and try etsy as well!
-Stamps. Do you really want Lego-Man on your wedding thank you notes? There are lovely floral, love and wedding stamp options.
-DIY. If feeling a little sassy or crave and added sparkle, put a small adhesive gem on your notes (found at Michael's, Jo-Ann Crafts, etc.)
