It’s all in the planning
Planning a wedding is all about being as organised as possible. At times it can feel like you need psychic powers when planning your wedding, because the only way to stay on top of things is to think ahead.
And, once your big day is over, despite you breathing a sigh of relief that all that stress has come to an end, there are still things to be organised…and the wedding thank you cards are just one of these things.
It might be that you end up with hundreds of wedding thank you cards that you need to write out – particularly if you had a large wedding with lots of family and friends as your guests. In this case, it is a good idea to write the thank you cards as you go along; so each time you receive a gift, write out the wedding thank you card so that you feel like you are on top of the situation. And then you can take regular breaks and not get confused with who sent what!
Traditionally it is the bride who writes the thank you cards, but we don’t think there’s any reason why the groom can’t do some of the work – so split the cards up and do half each! If you can’t persuade your new hubby to get involved, then ask some close friends or family members if they can lend a hand and make an evening of it.
The other important thing to remember is to keep a list of who you have written to so that you don’t miss anyone out, or write to someone twice (it happens). And when this task is complete – now you can breathe a sigh of relief!
