Personalize each note. Don’t send the same, generic message to each guest; it sends the message that you were tired of writing notes and too lazy to personally acknowledge them. Take the time to pen something individual and thank them for their specific gift by name. You may even want to mention how you plan to use it.
Invitation cards differ from the type of celebration, to be conducted and in this case, having an invitation card for your anniversary simply focuses on the number of years you are celebrating your wedding. You can create invitation cards for silver anniversary, golden anniversary and any other anniversary.
Cards for a bachelor party or bridal shower are sent to friends or acquaintances of the engaged couple. The party is held before the wedding day to collect money as a gift to go toward wedding or honeymoon. Unlike a wedding invitation, anyone can attend – the more guests the merrier! The card highlights all the information needed by guests who want to join in the festivities.
You could also consider using a greeting card software. Purchasing the software is going to be cheaper than having the invitations professionally printed. You can also reuse this software for several other occasions. There are some Microsoft Office product like Microsoft Word and Publisher that would also work great for you to create your own engagement party invitations. They have already made designs and the Microsoft clip art can add visual enhancements to your engagement invites.
Write a thank you note to the whole group, don’t send a card. Since they went to the trouble to chip in for a gift, writing short but sincere note is the way to go.
