Most newlyweds probably dread the daunting task of completing thank you notes after their wedding. Yet, the faster you sit down to write them the faster the task will be over. Keep in mind that the rule of thumb states that couples have at least 1 year from their wedding date to complete their notes. However, it is best if you try to complete them within three months after the wedding date. Today, handwritten thank you notes are few and far between. Regina Cialone, NYC based wedding planner states that printed thank you notes are far too cold and impersonal. So, BRIDES magazine came up with several scenarios for how to come up with the right words to say, and we have listed some of our favorites below!

{ Scenario #1 A gift off your registry } 
If someone gave you a gift off of your registry it mostly likely means you really wanted it. So, explain that in your note and mention how you will use it.

{ Scenario #2 A gift of money } 
It’s never polite to mention how much money was received. However, it is best to hint at how you will use the cash.

{ Scenario #3 It’s a group gift } 
Even though its one gift from several people, you still should write an individual note to each person. Although, remember to give the entire group a special shout out as well.

{ Scenario #4 You already have one } 
This happens a lot more than you think. So, it is best to not mention you returned the gift. You could write about the gift and giver itself in your note. Make sure you always find something personal to say.

{ Scenario # 5 They sent a gift, but couldn’t come to the wedding } 
Mention the gift that was received and how thoughtful it was for them to think of you. Then, talk about how you wish they could have been there.
