Seeing as your wedding guests all joined together on your big day to celebrate with you, you should certainly return the favor by writing them a wedding thank you card.


Most likely, your guests have provided you with a gift, a card, or just their presence at your big day, all of which you certainly appreciated.

However, are you aware of how to write a wedding thank you card? If not, don’t fret, as this task isn’t as difficult as it may appear.

Here at Rose Petal Events, we love being able to provide couples with inspiration for their big day. That’s why we have gathered some tips to assist you in writing a great wedding thank you card. If you are planning on writing your own, be sure to continue reading to gain some knowledge:

  • Prepare ahead. With all of the gifts that you will open, it will be hard to remember who gifted you what. Before you open your presents, grab a pen and notepad and write down everything that was received, and by who. This way, when you go to write the wedding thank you card, you can personally thank your guests for the wonderful gift that they provided.
  • Get personal. Instead of writing a general thank you in regards to the present, thank your guest personally for the gift that was received, and even add a little note as to how you plan on using the gift. For example, if you received dishes, you could write: “Thank you so much for the beautiful dishes, as we look forward to presenting our meals among them”.
  • Be on time. After the wedding, you will surely open your gifts right away. It is important that you send out your wedding thank you cards ideally within a month after the big day, but especially before two months.

Writing a wedding thank you card is a great way to show your guests your appreciation for their attendance at your wedding and the gift that they provided.
