Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer
After your wedding festivities, you’re going to be exhausted. One of the most exhausting tasks is writing out all of the thank you’s to your guests. Anything you can do prior to the big day to help you in the end, I highly recommend doing to help yourself out. I wanted to share a few tips and tricks to make the long process of thank you’s a little more tolerable.
Address thank you’s when addressing invites
I cannot stress enough how much easier this is than having to keep track of a log of every gift you get along with the corresponding address. Your exhausted self be so appreciative of this after the wedding. I highly recommend doing this! It’ll take a little more time up front to write out the addresses on both envelopes but it will save more time and headache in the long run.
Get a stamp for your address
Etsy sells some great custom stamps that you can order to save your hand a bit of hurting. Getting a stamp with your names and addresses is a great idea if you’re in a home that you know you’ll stay in for years to come. That is why we opted out of it, since we are still in an apartment. But I recommend this if you have a large guest list or already in a more long-term home.
Get guest list printed on the envelopes by the company
We ordered all of our invites and thank you’s from Minted. They are an amazing company all around. If you would like to know more, check out my post all about these items. They offer the choice of printing out the guest list on your invites. We did this because it was included in the price of our invites! So great!
Slow down and make the list while opening gifts
Many people get too excited or think “I’ll definitely remember everything”, when opening gifts. I promise you won’t remember. Just write it down. There’s two of you now, have one person open and one person write down what you receive.
Make sure to take your time so you can write everyone a personal note
These people took the time to buy you a gift and sacrifice a day to come help you celebrate something special. Take the time to write them a special something. I promise they will appreciate it!
I hope you enjoyed reading these tips and tricks for your thank you’s and can take something away from this. Comment below if you have any more tips for others reading!
