Wedding stationary is great. Dayspring has some awesome wedding Thank you’s – check them out HERE. I think you will really love them. If I was getting married again I would order from them (unless I made them myself 🙂
I came across an article the other day that stated a bride had a year after her wedding to send out her thank you’s. What!? A year – what if they lost the list – then what? The same article said that the guests have a year to send a gift. Now, I don’t know about you….but I would not even remember 2 months later, let alone a year. This went totally against everything I was taught so, as usual, I hit the internet to see what I could find.
I am wondering where that rumor even came from when the top wedding peeps say NO WAY! But, to ask another question…why do we need a year? The wedding planning is over, the honeymoon was great, and back to work we go. It’s not like we have to go and dig the garden and milk the cows during the daylight hours available to us.
Is the task just so daunting that we need more time to put it off and get mentally prepared. (which it itself would be a shame because people spent hard earned money to buy things on YOUR list).
Well, writing your wedding thank you’s is not enough. You actually need to buy stamps and put them on the envelope….and put them in the mail box. Why do I even have to say that? Well…
About 30 years ago I went to a Bat Mitzvah. The young girl wrote her thank you’s out in a timely manner. She gave them to her dad to buy stamps and mail them….only her dad never did. How weird is that? And totally crazy!
As the old joke goes – ‘How do you eat an elephant?…..1 bite at a time.'
How about writing (and sending) 3-4 a day? That is how I address my Christmas cards (since I make them all my notes are pretty short and sweet). It makes it manageable…and fun. Thinking of your gifts and your guests should put a smile in your heart.’
I also hope the day was magic and totally memorable…in a good way
