Year after year, the people have lost the habit of saying thanks to the people who was part of their wedding ceremony and event. For that reason, today many couples do not know that they can say thanks with a nice card, a letter of thanks or even personally.
A civic or religious wedding ceremony would not be the same if the members of the family and closest friends of the couple were not part of this great event. The objective of these people is to honor the decision of this new couple. Besides, to share the moment of happiness with the couple and also to wish the best for them, the guests use to bring many gifts along with them.
We must not think that with the invitation to the celebration of our weeding, our whole bunch of guests are obligated to buy us gifts, they may decline the invitation. Generally, the people who go to a wedding celebration want to share that special day full of happiness with the bride and the groom.
When a person receives a wedding invitation, he feels flattered because the bride and the groom thought about him in first place, because he is considered as an important person in the life of the new couple. To retrieve this proof of estimation, the guest tries his best to find a really good gift for the couple.
However, many couples ignore about this important detail and they do not say thanks to the guests for being part of that special day or for the presents. Other kinds of coupes really want to thank the guests of their wedding celebration but they simply do not how to do it. Next we will give some advices about how and when you must say thanks to the guests of your wedding celebration.
First at all, you must talk with your couple and ask if she or he is agree to say thanks to the people who took part of your wedding celebration, and of course for the presents given by them. This part is really important because the both of the members of the couple must organize themselves to go and show the respective thanks together.
In second place, you and your couple must choose when is actually the best moment to start the thanks giving process. Some people think that it is the best time when they receive the presents or gifts. Other couples prefer to say thanks to their guests when they are right there in the religious or civic weeding ceremony or at the wedding party. Well, but we actually think that the best moment to say thanks to the guests is when the celebrations are totally over and the new couple have finished opening all of the gifts. Oh by the way, try not to take more than a month after the wedding event to say thanks.
In third place, the couple must choose the way how they want to say thanks, I mean they have to choose if they are going to use a card, a nice letter or maybe they think the best way is to do it personally. This last option will be fine if the people that the couple wants to thank actually live close by.
In any case, it would be really helpful if the person who will receive the gifts the day of the weeding event can elaborate a list with the name of the people who sent their gifts and choosing the respective cards of each gift. Besides, it is absolutely necessary that the person who received the gifts on the day of the weeding celebration counts with a register with the names of the guests list.
Ok, having as a base the list of guests and the list of gifts, then you can start to write your letter to say thanks.
A nice detail which will be appreciated by the guest is that you must include in the letter or maybe in the card, the name of the gift offered by this guest. Finally do not forget that your letter or card to say thanks must contain the signature of both the husband and the wife.
About the cards and the letters, it is highly recommendable to elaborate and print them with a computer and the paper must exactly like the one you used to make the invitations. About the writing of the letter, you must use a regular language with paragraphs full of thanks and love form the top to the end.
