Properly Thanking Your Guests And Wedding Party Members

When you stand at the altar and exchange vows, you can appreciate the sight of so many friends and family watching you share this moment with your partner. Whether you have a large gathering, or an intimate affair, your guests can help make your wedding day feel truly special. Traditionally, you can share gratitude with your guests by giving small favors. Your wedding party can receive larger gifts, to signify their roles in helping you make your special day happen. Of course, one form of thanks is more literal than others – you are expected to show appreciation for your guests with thank-you notes acknowledging the gifts they provided.

Offering Wedding Favors For Your Guests

Your wedding favors are tokens of your appreciation for everyone who arrives to your celebration. These gifts do not need to be elaborate, or expensive, to be meaningful. You may want to offer something personalized to connect the gift to your wedding. You can provide everyone with something universally useful, like a pair of sunglasses, or a can holder, with the details of your wedding listed.

Providing Special Thank-You Gifts For Your Wedding Party

The gifts you exchange with bridesmaids, groomsmen, ushers, and anyone else who plays a special role in your wedding can be nicer than what you provide to your guests. Many grooms will actually use the gift to double as wedding attire – you can select a common tie, socks, or belt you want everyone to wear during the wedding. If you have wedding party members traveling to attend your event, remember that a larger gift could be difficult for them to accommodate.

Keeping Track Of Wedding Gifts You Received, And Sending Your Thanks

As tempting as it might be to turn to digital thank-you notes, there are several reasons to stick with traditional, hand-written cards. Email can seem impersonal, and less thoughtful. It can also be less appealing to older guests. Make sure you make a careful count of what you received, and who offered which gift. If you saved your record of everyone’s address before sending out your invitations, you can have an easier time filling out envelopes to mail out your cards.
