We are so lucky to have a thoughtful family member like you. It was wonderful to see you at the ceremony, and we look forward to telling you all about the honeymoon at the next family function.

Close Friends

Friends are just as special as family members and deserve a heartfelt message:

Before we became a married couple, we relied on the support of our friends. We would like to personally thank you for being there on our special day. It wouldn't have been the same without you. The gift you chose was wonderful, and we look forward to putting it to good use. We promise that married life will not make us forget about the friends who have always been there for us over the years.


People who you don't know very well still deserve a warm note of appreciation:

Wedding Staff

Because of your help with the cleanup process, we were able to relax together after our reception. Thank you so much for everything.

Absent Guests

Thank a guest who sends a present but doesn't attend with a nice card:

Thank you so much for the thoughtful gift that you sent. We are sorry that you could not attend the ceremony, but want you to know that we are thinking of you and hope all is well. We'll have to get together soon so that we can share photos from our big day and catch up on the events of our lives.


Thank gift-givers and attendees by sending one of these catchy rhymes:

Thank you for the gifts
We love them very much
We appreciate the thought
And hope you'll keep in touch

Thank you for coming
And showing you care
It meant a lot to us
We're glad you were there


Make sure that you address each recipient by using his or her first name in the card. This makes the guest feel that you truly care and aren't just sending a carbon-copy card to everyone. Include a friendly closing like "With Love" or "Take Care", followed by you and your spouse's signature, after each message.

If you received a cash gift, consider mentioning what you purchased with the money. If you received decorations for your home, send a picture of them hanging from the wall or sitting on the table. People like to know that you enjoyed the gift you received, so reassure them that you did. Your kindness will not be forgotten, and guests will happily attend any housewarming parties and baby showers that may occur in your future.
