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.

Are you staring at a pile of gifts right now, pen in hand, procrastinating on your wedding thank-you cards? These personalized notes are notably the most tedious part of the planning process. They also bring up a lot of questions. How long can you procrastinate? Who has to get them? How personalized do they need to be? The answers to these questions are below, along with a few samples to get you started. So grab a glass of wine, your favorite pen, and get to it!

Wedding Thank-You Card Etiquette: Know what’s right before you write.

Before you start getting hand cramps, here are a few tips to make this task less tedious. 1. Only organize your addresses once. Do it for your invites and keep the list in a safe place until you open gifts. 2. Add stamps to your registry and save on postage! 3. Shop our collection of invitations and stationery! 4. When you open each present, write down the details. That means who sent it, what brand it is, what it looks like, etc. You need to mention the item in each note, and specifics are key. 5. Buy your favorite pen. Wedding card etiquette calls for blue or black (easy for Grandma to read). I’m a big fan of Pilot G-2 pens, but that’s just me. 6. I can almost guarantee that you will not complete every personalized note in one sitting. Props to you if you do, but don’t feel bad if a break is needed

When should you send them out?

I’m the queen of procrastination, but waiting to write your thank-yous will just come off as rude. If you want to follow etiquette, stick to these deadlines: Shower gifts: No later than 2 weeks after the party. Gifts from guests who couldn't attend: Right away! Get them out before the big day, if possible. Wedding presents: 6-8 weeks after the big day.

Who needs to receive one?

There are a lot of people who deserve personalized thanks after your nuptials. A few may seem excessive, but stick to this list and you’ll stay away from the drama. -- Anyone who gives you a present. If someone gives you a present at your bridal shower, bachelorette party, and big day, they get three cards! -- Every member of your bridal party. -- Anyone who threw a bridal shower or bachelor/bachelorette party for you. -- Anyone who allowed guests to stay at their house for you. -- Your parents! You may have thanked them in person, but a hand-written card will take it to the next level. -- Anyone who lent a helping hand. Did Aunt Sue bake muffins for the morning after? Did your best friend do your makeup? Maybe Grandma made you a frozen lasagna so your fridge wouldn’t be empty after the honeymoon. All of these people deserve a thank-you! -- Your vendors. Although optional, if one of your vendors went above and beyond, send them a note and let them know! Raving reviews are also an option. -- Anyone who attended your ceremony or reception (even if they neglected to give you a gift). Yes, I know it’s frustrating, but they dressed up, came out, and celebrated with you! Show them you appreciated their presence.

Wedding thank-you card wording and samples.

Now, don’t write these verbatim into every note you send out. Remember, personalization is the key to a great thank-you. You should be enthusiastic, but not over the top. If they sent you money, explain how you’re going to use it. If they gave you something you’re sure to return, do NOT tell them that. Here are a few samples for the common cards.

Monetary Gift

Dear Aunt Sue,Ross and I want to thank you for the check you so generously gave us. We are saving for the down payment on our new home, and you’re gift has brought us one step closer. We can’t tell you how happy we were to have you there with us as we started our lives together.Love you,Rachel and Ross

Registry Item

Dear Charlotte,John and I can’t thank you enough for the Kate Spade champagne glasses you gave us. John and I can’t wait to use them, and we’ll certainly toast to you! Having you at our wedding meant so much. It wouldn’t have been the same without you there.Thanks again,Carrie and John

Shower or Party Host

Dear Ted,I can’t thank you enough for hosting my bachelor party! The night was one to remember, and that’s all thanks to you. You have been a huge part of my life, and I am so glad you were there to help me start my life with Lily.Thanks again,Marshall

Guest/No Gift

Dear Stanley,Pam and I want to thank you for attending our big day! You’re a great guy, and it wouldn’t have been the same without you there. Thanks for celebrating with us as we started our lives together.Best,Jim and Pam As you can see, 3-5 lines of personalized, hand-written thanks is all you need! Once you get into a groove, you’ll be surprised how easy this task can be. When you’re all done, you can finally put the planning behind you and enjoy married life.

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 to Send Wedding Thank-You Cards

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:

  • For all gifts received before the wedding (which you can easily track in our Guest List Manager, by the way), send thank-you notes within two weeks of their arrival. 
  • For all gifts received on or after your wedding, send thank-you cards within (or up to) three months of their arrivial.

Start Writing Them ASAP

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.

Stock Up on Stationery, Pens and Stamps

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.

Set Up a Designated Work Space

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.

Get Down to Business

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.

Write Them in Batches

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.

Wedding Thank-You Card Wording Samples

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.

Thank-You Card Wording for a Cash Wedding Gift

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.

Much love,

Lauren and Adam

Send each person who contributed to the gift their own, individual thank-you note.

Dear Charlie,

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.

Much love,

Lauren and Adam

Thank-You Card Wording for a Wedding Gift From Someone You Don't Know (Yet)

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.

Thank-You Card Wording for a Wedding Gift You Don't Love

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

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!) 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!

Wedding Thank-You Card Etiquette: Know what’s right before you write.

Now that the wedding and honeymoon are over, it is time to write your thank you cards. While it seems like a lot of work, it is proper manners.

Just as your guests wondered how to write wedding wishes, you might be confused about how to properly construct your thank you cards for your wedding gifts. One of the best pieces advice we can offer is to start writing your thank-you notes as a start to receive wedding gifts. This way you won’t feel overwhelmed.

We have gathered some advice from wedding experts on the best wedding thank you cards wording. This can help the process go smoothly and quickly.

Why Writing Wedding Thank You Notes is Important

Thank you card writing is something that will never go out of style. People like it that you remembered to thank them for their gift, or even that they shared in your special day. Remember, some of your guests traveled great distances and made sacrifices to attend your wedding. A wedding thank you card is a great way to express your appreciation for the time, thought and effort they put into your wedding gift.

Everyone who attended your wedding should receive a thank you card, as well as those who gave you a gift. This includes everything from extravagant gifts to monetary gifts to token gifts. Here is a brief list who should receive thank you cards:

  • Anyone who has given you any type of gift including engagement party gifts, shower gifts, bachelor/bachelorette party gifts and wedding gifts (monetary or otherwise)
  • Those who hosted any parties or events for your wedding
  • Your wedding attendants
  • Whoever is hosting the wedding
  • Vendors, suppliers, wedding planner, etc. (limo drivers, florists, and so forth)
  • Those who hosted your wedding guests.

If you need advice on how to address your thank you notes, refer to our article on How To Address An Invitation.

You should send out thank you cards for those gifts received prior to your wedding within two weeks after you have received the gift. For those gifts, you get at your wedding, or after, the proper time frame is within three months. This way you will not have to worry about what to say at the wedding thank you notes on your honeymoon. You can relax and enjoy your honeymoon. When you return home, you can take the time to focus on your thank you notes for your wedding gifts.
