Он не стал распространяться о другой причине: здесь у него жил единственный друг, в котором он мог быть уверен и на помощь которого рассчитывал. Сенаторы пребывали в молчании, ожидая продолжения, и Олвин отлично сознавал, что, слушая их ушами и видя их глазами, эа всем, что происходит в этой комнате, сейчас следит огромное число людей.
Он был представителем Диаспара, и весь Лиз судит теперь о таинственном городе по тому, что он, Олвин, говорит, по тому, как он ведет себя, по тому, как он мыслит. Это была неимоверная ответственность, и он чувствовал себя перед нею таким маленьким. Он собрался с мыслями и заговорил.

Should you include vendors in your wedding program's thank you section? As for wording, here are a few examples of what your thank you section could look.
You've finished the last slice of cake and unpacked your honeymoon suitcases—that's when you know those wedding thank-you notes can't wait any longer. The task of coming up with personalized wedding thank-you cards for 100-plus different guests is daunting, but it's both necessary and doable. Consider this your complete thank-you card survival guide, including wedding thank-you card wording, etiquette, prep and more. In other words, if you don't know where to start, start here.
When exactly are your thank-you notes "due"? While your guests have up to a year to send you a wedding gift, you, sadly, don't have that kind of time. Follow these timing guidelines to avoid leaving your guests hanging:
Wedding thank-you card prep starts months before you unwrap that first gift (yes, really). Remember that handy guest list your entire family weighed in on? Do yourself a favor and make a copy of it. Add a column for gifts and wedding thank-you notes. This allows you to keep a record of which registry gifts you've received (and from whom) and log your thank-you card progress as you go. Who doesn't love checking things off a list? (It's easy to think you've already sent a thank-you note for a gift when you have so many to remember.) Best of all, your guest list manager can store all your guests' contact information, so you won't have to hunt for everyone's mailing address.
This is the fun part of thank-you card writing. Invest in some stationery that represents you as a couple, or pick up some simple white or ecru note cards. Thank-you notes never go out of style (and there will definitely be more than one gift-giving occasion thrown in your honor), so stock up shortly after you get engaged. If you decide to personalize your stationery, opt for first names only—wait until after the wedding to order new stationery with your married monogram or shared last initial. If you've chosen a wedding motif, like a maple leaf or geometric crest, consider using it in your social stationery too. A good roller ball pen will do wonders for penmanship. Stick with blue or black ink and make sure it won't smear or bleed through your note cards. Lastly, buy a roll of Forever stamps, so you're not hunting down postage every time you lick an envelope.
Designate a thank-you note writing station in your home—you'll be more likely to pen those cards if you have a clean, comfortable place to get things done. If you don't have a desk, keep your note cards near a table or another hard surface. Don't hesitate to make yourself comfortable: A glass of wine and some Spotify can really sweeten the deal.
Etiquette rules dictate that every wedding gift deserves a thank-you note—and we agree. (In this case it's not about adhering to stuffy old rules—it's about showing gratitude to those you love). That means, between saying "yes" and "I do," you'll be doing a lot of thank-you card writing. Wedding planning takes a lot of time—we get it—but we recommend penning notes as soon as gifts start to arrive. This may mean before the wedding (think shower and engagement party gifts)—and long after.
Don't try to get all your thank-you notes done in one sitting. Instead, set aside 30 minutes or so every night to tackle your wedding thank-you card list. And remember, the wedding gifts you've gotten were intended for you both. Regardless of who's penning them, sign both of your names—unless, of course, you're thanking your bestie for a lacy number received at your bachelorette party or for the unforgettable bachelor party. The best way to get it done and share the burden? Divide and conquer. Some couples divide the list down the middle, while others prefer to write thank-you cards to their extended family who may not know their future spouse as well. Do whatever works best for you two.
You don't need to write a novel, but do personalize each thank-you note to reflect your individual relationship with the addressee and their gift. Use specifics: "the Waterford Lismore vase from our registry." If you've been gifted money for your wedding, explain how you plan to use it, like "we're saving for our first house" or "we can't wait to indulge at the spa on our honeymoon." And don't forget, their presence was a present too—thank your guest for attending the wedding, helping celebrate your love and thinking of you at this special time.

Dear Brittany and John,
Thank you so much for the crystal wine goblets. We now have a complete set—and you know how we love our wine! Adam and I are looking forward to your next visit, when we can enjoy a drink together. Thank you again for thinking of us!
All the best,
Lauren and Adam
Avoid mentioning the amount of money given (a word like "generous" will do the trick), but do share how you plan to use it.
Dear Aunt Edna and Uncle Tom,
Adam and I are so grateful for your generous gift. We're one step closer to the bathroom remodel we've been dreaming of and plan to start this spring. It was so wonderful to have you celebrate alongside us at the wedding—thanks for making the trip. Looking forward to seeing you in Florida for Thanksgiving.
Lauren and Adam
Send each person who contributed to the gift their own, individual thank-you note.
Thank you for the awesome backyard fire pit. We were counting down the days until our wedding, now we can count down until summer! We're so lucky to have such thoughtful friends. S'mores soon? Thank you again for thinking of us and helping us celebrate this happy time in our lives.
Lauren and Adam
Whether it's a close friend of your parents invited to the wedding or an aunt on your partner's side you'll be meeting at the shower, it's okay to acknowledge that you're strangers. But do mention you look forward to meeting them soon. Bonus points if you can connect them to a relative or friend.
Dear Mr. Brown,
Thank you for the absolutely beautiful crystal vase. It's perfect for our entryway—I will nudge Adam to keep it filled with flowers. My dad has spoken so fondly of you over the years, and Adam and I look forward to meeting you at the wedding in a few weeks. Thank you for your kindness and for sharing in this exciting time in our lives.
Lauren and Adam
Not an ideal situation, obviously, but it happens. Try to focus this wedding thank-you card wording around your overall appreciation, rather than the gift itself.
Dear Susan and Tom,
Thank you for the colorful fluorescent lava lamps—so retro and fun! Every time we look at them we will think of you and remember this special time in our lives. Many thanks for sharing in our joy on our wedding day.
Lauren and Adam
Don't forget to keep your wedding registry up to date as gifts start rolling in.

When it comes to weddings, there’s no one that deserves a heartier display of gratitude than all of the vendors who work tirelessly to turn your wedding dreams into reality. At the end of the day, they’re the ones who can make or break your special day. Here are 8 ways to show your vendors the love they deserve for making your wedding day oh-so-memorable.

With everything you need to do in the days after your wedding, you may think that a quick email thanking your vendors for their hard work is more than enough. While that’s a nice gesture, if your vendor went above-and-beyond to make your day extra special, you should consider taking the time to write a note the old-fashioned way: by hand! This extra little effort shows lasting appreciation for the work your vendors did on your special day. When writing the note, be specific in telling them exactly what they did that you loved — the details make your words feel more heartfelt and sincere.
It’s no secret that money talks, so why not say thanks with a few extra bills? This is probably the most common way to show your appreciation, but with all the time and effort your vendors put into making the details of your big day come together perfectly, some additional cash is always appreciated. And if one of your vendors really blew you away with their work ethic and thoughtfulness, give them a little more than you were originally planning.
After all of the emails, calls, brainstorming sessions, and times that they saved the day with a genius idea, you should spend some time writing out thoughtful testimonials for each of your vendors. The world deserves to know just how awesome your photographer or florist is! Look them up on Yelp and any wedding boards, and submit a rating and a review. Your first-hand experiences will help future couples find your vendors and inspire them to at least look into hiring them for their own nuptials. Plus, some vendors like to share these nice messages from their clients on their blogs and social media accounts to help build their reputation.
With all the vendors out there, the best way for someone to build their business is by word-of-mouth recommendations. Is your BFF or co-worker getting married shortly after your wedding? As they’re starting to look around at various vendors, suggest that they reach out to your makeup artist or band. Your friends will love getting the personal recommendation (it’s less risky than going into an initial meeting blind), and your favorite vendors will appreciate the new business.
Another way to give back to your vendors after all they did for you is to get their name out there. If your venue offers its clients a list of vetted vendors they like to work with, ask if some of your favorites can be included in the future. This is an easy way to get your them the attention they deserve!
Your vendors worked hard to help you pull off the wedding of your dreams, so spread the word to all future to-be-weds! Submit your professional photos to a wedding blog (like Lover.ly!) and make sure all of your vendors, from the Etsy designer who made your cake topper to the seamstress who made sure your dress fit perfectly, are credited (website and all) in the post. Other engaged couples can see your vendors’ work, fall in love with it, and then know exactly how to get in touch with them.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so make sure to send your vendors a snapshot of their work on display at your wedding! Talk to your photographers before your wedding day and let them know that you’d like a few stylized shots of everything from your invitation suite to your cake. Make sure to pose with your DJ or take a close-up of the subtle details your hairstylist worked into your big day ‘do. Sending them a professional photo of their work will let them see how they contributed to your wedding festivities (they may never see the big picture otherwise), and will help them build their portfolio. They’ll be so thankful that they can show off their great work to future clients.
There’s no better way to show how grateful you are than by entrusting your vendors with your events after the wedding. Does your hairstylist work at a nearby salon? Start going there for regular trims and touchups. Order roses for Valentine’s Day from your florist. Ask your photographer to take your family’s annual holiday card photo. Your vendors will be flattered by (and appreciative of) your loyalty!
