How to Write Thank You Cards for Your Wedding

Saying thank you is important, but sometimes even the best of us struggle to find the right words. Keep reading for a quick overview as to how to write thank you cards for your wedding.

While this whole wedding thing is kind of about you, it’s also kind of not. It’s about the friends and family who shaped you into who you are! It might seem counter-intuitive, but the more you focus on your guests, the more fun you’ll have. Come together to toast, to laugh, and to celebrate – you’ll never have more people you care about in one place again.

“Thank you” is a great way to get the ball rolling. During these final three months, keep these words on the tip of your tongue. Here are a few ideas for writing the perfect thank you card.

  • Be specific about what you’re thanking them for
  • Reference fond memories
  • Use repetition to sound poetic
  • Skip sincerely. Use “love,” “warmly,” or “xo” instead.

A bad thank you would sound something like this:

Dear Kimberly,

Thank you for the 6-piece glassware set. We will use it.


But a good thank you takes the time to really consider the person on the other end and what they mean to you.

Kimberly –

I can’t believe how far we’ve come from chasing boys in Mrs. Gilroy’s class (3rd grade) – I’m getting married! Ahh! The glassware was really thoughtful of you – cocktails here we come. You’re an amazing friend, a confidante, and a dreamer – and you have great taste to boot!


And while there’s really no formula for saying thanks, the above tips are a good place to start if you’re wondering how to write thank you cards for your wedding.
