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.

Bronte Thank You Card in Bronze

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:

· Parents
· Attendants
· Guests who brought gifts
· Officiate
· 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.

What do you say on a thank-you note?

  1. Your message depends on the purpose of your note. Keep the mission in mind: you are sharing your appreciation for their contribution to your wedding and new life.
  2. A thank you note for a gift should include the following;
    1. A message about how you will use the gift in your home.
    2. A message about how much you appreciate their presence at the wedding (if they attended).
    3. A message about how much you missed the person(s) if they were unable to attend the wedding.
    4. A message thanking them for their support in your new life.
  3. A thank you note to an attendant should include the following:
    1. A message about how much they supported you in your journey to the alter and beyond.
    2. A message about how much their friendship means to you.
    3. A message about any gifts/showers/specific contributions they made to your wedding.
    4. Your wishes for your continued friends.
  4. A thank you note to a parent should include:
    1. A message about how much you appreciate their support/financial contribution to your wedding.
    2. A message of thanks for any special gifts they gave you and your new husband.
    3. A message of your appreciation for their help in getting you where you are today.
  5. A thank you note to a musician or other ceremony helper that was unpaid or is part of your circle of friends or family should include:
    1. A message of appreciation of their contribution to your wedding.
    2. A message of appreciation for them giving their time to your special day.
    3. A message of appreciate of their support and friendship.
  6. A thank you note to the officiate should include:
    1. A message of appreciation for their counseling.
    2. A message of appreciation for their contribution to the ceremony.

Writing thank you notes can seem to be a daunting task, but if you divide them up into these categories, you will have a place to start. Set a timetable of getting them out within three months of the wedding. You can do it!

    The Panthers' other primetime game is a trip to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers in Week 10 on Thursday Night Football. The Panthers have lost all three of their regular season Dallas Cowboys vs Carolina Panthers game at Pittsburgh and are 0-5 in regular season home games against the Cowboys (but 2-0 against Dallas in the playoffs).[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=797EDkPLgvY[/youtube]

    In boxing, threats, promises and deadlines are but grains in a giant salt shaker, so the boxing world didn’t exactly lose its collective mind when Oscar De La Hoya declared Wednesday afternoon that the most anticipated fight of the year was dead. The Golden Boy chief executive told ESPN that “100 percent there is no fight.”
    Less than two hours after saying Watch Canelo vs GGG 2 live was off the table, Alvarez’s promoter reversed course and said a last-ditch effort to stage the rematch worked. After months of bickering, the two prize fighters have agreed to terms and will finally square off Sept. 15.
