Picture this: Your wedding day has come and gone, and everything went off without a hitch. Your closest friends and family cheered you on as you walked down the aisle and married the love of your life. Don’t those friends and family deserve an extra special thank you for all their love and support? Skip the traditional impersonal thank you stationary, and consider one of these five unique ways to say thanks instead.
Create a special Thank You banner or sign (like the one above) and take it with you to your photo session. All the love and excitement from the big day will show, and your guests will be able to see how much you truly appreciate their support.
For a cute day-of thanks, include a small note in each place setting thanking your guests for sharing your first meal as husband and wife.
A thank-you video is the closest you can get to thanking each of your guests in person. It gives you the freedom to be yourselves – whether that’s funny, or sincere, or a little bit of both. Post it on your wedding website, email it to all your friends, or send DVD copies to your loved ones.
Buy a bunch of postcards on your honeymoon and use them to thank each of your guests. They’ll love the personal touch and feeling included from start to finish.
You had a photo booth at the wedding, so bring it full-circle and snap a few photos to show your guests how much you appreciate their support. Use ones from the big day to capture the excitement and joy of the celebrations, and use a chalkboard or small sign to say “Thanks!”
How will you thank your friends and family for sharing in your big day?
