From a very young age, we've had this thing in our minds to thank and please those around us, especially our loved ones, our family, and our closest friends.
Being grateful for something is a matter of good manners, although following your wedding, the need to express you gratitude towards guests becomes intrinsic. It's natural to want to say "thank you", especiall since all of them probably game you a gift. It really doesnt matter what they gave you, because at the end of the day its the gesture that counts. Here are 5 heartfelt ways you can use to express you gratitude for those that attend your wedding.
Thank You Card Ideas
One of the best ways to express your gratitude is with a nice thank you card. However, it might be a good idea to make it personalized. This way each and every one of your guests can feel special, and you gesture will mean a lot to them. Make your thank you cards count with nice images and custom deisgns. There are online websites you can enter to customize a card, then have it delivered in print format stright to your door.
Thank You Gifts
Thank you gifts are more appropriate for bridesmaids, groomsmen, best man, maid of honor, and parents. You cna include a card for them as well, but since they're more special than the rest of your guests, it might be a good idea to buy them a gift. It doesnt have to be something overly expensive, a voucher to a chic beauty salon, a weekend city guide trip somewhere outside the city/country, nice jewelry such as cufflinks for men, and beautiful necklaces for women will be more than appreciated.
Customized Photo Album
A photo album is an excellent idea for a gift following your wedding. However, it has to be something special. You can choose an album, and then personalize the cover. Express your gratitude on the cover, and then include the best pictures of you and the reciever. Focus on the funniest pics to put a smile on their faces, and below every photos write some beautiful thoughts. Make your guests feel special, and your gesture will be more than appreciated. There are websites you can check out to make a photo album online. Upload the pics, choose the layout and the design for the album, and have it sent straight to your door.
Be Funny When Putting Your Thoughts on Paper
It's very important to make guests feel special, especially following your wedding. Sometimes the best way to say "thank you" is with a funny note. For expamle, you can crack a joke on the note, or include a hilarious photograph of the groom. The mere fact that they took the time to come to your wedding is enough for you; tell them in writing how much you loved their gift, but if they gave you money you shouldn't talk about the sum. Just express your gratitude with words, and then joke about how you plan on spending it all on something silly like candy or beer. ;)
Emotional After-Wedding Video
An after wedding video in a Suffolk Wedding Venue, or wherever you get married, that includes some of the best moments from the party is a great idea, and even funny and quirky moments can be added. Customize the video and make sure the guest that gets it is in the video. Or, if you have time, you can make "thank you videos" for everyone. Choose the background music carefully, and catch all the good moments - the dance, the food, the decor, and anything else you can think of. Your gift will definitely be appreciated, so try to make it as meaningful as possible.
Expressing our gratitude towards the people that we care most about is a great way to tell them how much we appreciate them. But we have to do it differently so that they can remember us. The best way to do that is with heartwarming gifts; something nice and memorable. You certainly don't want your guests to forget how much fun they had at your party!
