Thank you notes are part of the wedding process. It may seem like a silly thing to do, but it's a tradition and an expected part of getting married. You may never know how much a thank you note means to someone who helped you share your special day.
That's the mission of a thank you note: to share your appreciation for someone sharing in your special day and for their contribution to your new life via a gift.
Here's a list of people you should include on your thank you note list:
· Guests who brought gifts
· Musician (unpaid or close family friend)
· Friends and relatives who sent gifts but did not attend the wedding
· Anyone else you considered an integral part of your special day
Your thank you note should be on formal stationery. A monogrammed card is a great option for your thank you notes. Go here to get a custom monogram design. Another great option is this foiled noted in gold or silver.
