Wedding Thank You Note Etiquette

After you return from your honeymoon, you face one more daunting wedding task: writing thank you notes. Etiquette states that you should send these out within two months of your wedding, but I recommend you do it sooner, while you are still in wedding mode. Make a list of gifts as you open them, and then pick an evening or two to sit down with your husband with a bottle of wine. Split up the list and get writing. The notes can be short, but try to make them as personal as you can.

Hi, just want to suggest a note that make a list of gifts as you open them, and then pick an evening or two to sit down with your husband with a bottle of wine. Split up the list and get writing. The notes can be short, but try to make them as personal as you can.
This really works well

Thanks

I agree it's a good idea to get them done and out of the way as soon as possible. How many grooms actually help out though? Haha.

Short is defiantly best. Can you consolidate and do a thank you know for the gift and for coming to the wedding in one thank you card? (I am from a culture that doesn't do thank you cards but my man is).

Ah, there is nothing that will bond you and your new hubby like drunk writing of thank you notes.
