How do I thank a guest for a gift?

If a guest has purchased something for you, always mention the gift specifically. An example is… Thank you so much for the beautiful vase. Daniel and I have placed it on our kitchen table and the beautiful spring flowers look amazing in it.

How long do I have to send the thank you cards?

For gifts received before the wedding, you generally have about 2 weeks. For gifts received during or after the wedding, you should wait no more than 3 months. Obviously, the sooner you send them out the better!

What else should I talk about?

If you had a special moment with that person on your day, it is great to bring that up! Maybe you took a shot at the bar with them, or maybe you danced together. It is always a great idea to bring up a special moment!
