Mind Your Manners – Making Sure You Don't Forget The Bridal Shower Thank You Card
When to send the bridal shower thank you card and what to say.
Wherever there's a bridal shower, a bridal shower thank you card is close to follow. Manners are so important and sending out a bridal shower thank you card to all of your guests is good manners.
The question is, when do you send the bridal shower thank you cards out and what do you say in them?
I'm Patti the Perfect Party Planner and I've been sending out bridal shower thank you cards for more years than I care to admit. If you need to know when to send them and what to say, you sure did come to the right place!
When to Send Them
There's an ages-old saying that says timing is everything. The timing of your bridal shower thank you card is no different. It's important to send your bridal shower thank you cards as quickly as possible.
Ideally, each bridal shower thank you card should be sent within four days of the end of the bridal shower.
What to Say
What to say is just as important as when to send you bridal shower thank you card. When writing the bridal shower thank you card, name the person it is being addressed to rather than just writing a generic heading.
Also make sure that you list the gifts they gave you in the bridal shower thank you card. For example, if Aunt Jenny gave you a crystal cake tray, your bridal shower thank you card should read something like this:
Dear Aunt Jenny,
Thank you so much for the stunning crystal cake tray. It is just perfect and I am sure I will be getting lots of use from it. Thanks again for all of your thoughtfulness,
What If You Don't Like the Gift?
A bridal shower thank you note lets guests know how much you appreciate the care and thought they put into your present. Even if you don't like the gift, it's important to show your appreciation of the thought that went into the gift.
While it may only take a moment to write, a bridal shower thank you note will mean a lot to those who spent time and money on your gifts.
