Document each gift. Chances are you’ll be writing so many thank you notes throughout your engagement and post-wedding that it will be impossible to keep it all straight in your head. So to stay organized, keep separate guest lists for each wedding event (e.g. bridal shower, engagement party, wedding) and document what each guest gives you at the time you receive it.
There are many different ways and reasons one would sent a thank you card. Most people would think that thank you cards are only sent for wedding gifts and so on. But you could send thank you cards for birthdays, graduation,weddings, engagement parties etc. There is no limit to sending out thank you cards to people that came for something at your house or where ever.
For the next event instead of sending out traditional cards and wasting all of that time and money, try sending an electronic card. With e-cards you don’t have to worry about addressing envelopes or buying stamps. You can simply use one of the hundreds of sites that offers e-card services and create your own custom cards. These sites make it very easy to do and you can even upload your own photos if you like. Fill in the email addresses of everyone on your list and in minutes you can create and send invitations right to everyone’s inbox. It not only makes things easier on you but it makes things easier on them as well because their invitation comes right to their email account making it easy for them to immediately update their schedule.
No, if you thank someone at the time they give you the gift, you do not have to send a thank you note. However, if the person when to a lot of effort (made you a quilt, found some rare thing you collected.) it is a very nice thing to let them know how much it meant to you with a little note. We all like personal mail and we all get very little of it. So five minutes of your time and a 37 cent stamp can really add joy to the giver’s day.
Invitations are a notoriously troublesome thing for any party planner to take on. You have to create a guest list, create and fill out the invitations, address and stamp each invite and then nag people for an RSVP so you can create a final guest list. This process can make your duties as a bridesmaid even more difficult and can be very stressful. However, thanks to the internet there is an easier way to handle the invitation process for all of the wedding related events that you have to plan, this is by using electronic greeting cards.
