Don’t procrastinate! Formal etiquette dictates that thank-yous for shower gifts should be sent within ten days and those for wedding gifts should be sent within two weeks after returning from the honeymoon. Moreover, gifts received prior to the wedding should be acknowledged immediately. That being said, if you happen to fall behind, rest assured it is never too late to be gracious!
Know the anatomy of a thank you note. Generally, you should greet the guest, express your gratitude, mention the specific gift, and thank them for attending the wedding (or for thinking of you if they couldn’t).
If you are in a friend or family member’s wedding as a bridesmaid you will soon find out that you have many responsibilities, especially if you are the maid of honor. Many times you are responsible for planning and hosting a number of different events from different bridal showers, engagement parties and bachelorette parties. This can be a lot to handle even for the most organized of women because there is a lot that goes into planning just one of these parties. In addition to food, guest lists and activities for each of these parties you are also responsible for the invitations.
Writing a thank you card to people is something that most people will not do or just leave it up to someone that is willing to do it. But there are others out there that is willing to do it and they even hand write something for all the people that give them something or just came out of care for that person.
So next time you are in a friend’s wedding and are stuck planning all of the pre-wedding events, save yourself some time and money and use electronic card services for all of your invitations. It will not only make you look like a better and more organized bridesmaid but they are easy to use and Eco-friendly as well. Say goodbye to the days of RSVP cards and expensive stamps and invitations and step into the technological world with e-card invitations.
