Always send handwritten notes. Regardless how brief, a handwritten note (as opposed to a preprinted one) illustrates sincerity and your appreciation for the gift.
For a romantic touch, Heart Design Candle Favors will add a warm glow to your bridal shower or reception. It has a beautiful gold metal spiral that surrounds the base, and a coiled heart-shaped holder for the place cards. Your guests can use these to display notes and photos too!
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.
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.
Place card holders make great wedding and shower favors because they come in different creative styles. What’s great about them is, they not only instruct your guests where to sit, they can also be used as a decoration. They can also be used as photo frames after the wedding. Beautiful and innovative, place card holders range from beach themes to winter extravaganza, to trendy designs, you can choose from a variety of styles to fit your taste.
