Send A Thank You Card

Etiquette and tips for Your Bridal Shower Thank You Notes

Bridal Shower Thank You Cards - Sample Wording, Tips and Etiquette

o Each guest gets a thank you for coming card regardless as to either she brought a gift

o Ideally cards are sent within two weeks of the shower (but a late thank you is best than no thank you)

o Send them in the mail. No email thank yous.

o No combo cards. Even if a singular friend sent and engagement gift, brought a bridal shower gift, and then sent you your wedding gift early, each act of kindness and gift gets its own note. The only irregularity is the "thank you for coming" card can be combined with the gift.

Ex. Thank you for coming to the bridal shower and the lovely nightgown.

o Hand write your cards.

o Do not forget to thank the hostess for planning the shower in the note. Ideally, she would receive a small thank you gift such as an engraved compact, charm bracelet, photo frame or other small keepsake.

o Mention the specific gift and give it or the sender a specific compliment.

o Save the gift tags and write what the gift is on the back with a note. Then use these when you write the cards.

o Address your envelopes all at once or as gifts arrive. Then put them in the mail as you write them.

o Carry the cards, your notes and a roll of stamps with you in your purse. Write a note or card on your lunch break or while waiting for laundry.

o Write only four or five notes at a time maximum to keep your handwriting neat.

Thank you guys so much for all of the love for my new camera! Truth is, I'm still working on paying it off since I had to go a few weeks without a paycheck in September. Things are a little tough right now, and for the hell of it I thought I'd ask - if you love my videos and feel so inclined - to donate through Paypal so my camera isn't repossessed or something? (It's the most expensive thing I own!) I'd of course be more than willing to accept more if you'd like to send it, but if each of you (my subscribers!) sent just , I could totally pay it off. So anyway, just throwing it out there. If you've got to spare, just send it on over to jaime.wojo@gmail.com on Paypal (I can't take debit or credit card payments through my account, though, just e-checks or bank-to-bank transfers) and I'd love you forever. You guys are awesome. :) Jaime 11/18 Tegan & Sara - @ Electric Factory, Philadelphia, PA 10/03/08
