Whoo. Y’all this past month has been a whirlwind. How is it the last week of October? This is my last post with WeddingWire about our planning process! Our wedding was beautiful, and I can’t wait to share it with you. The most beautiful part of it was the people we got to share it with, and one of the best ways for us to thank them is sending out wedding thank you notes in a timely manner!
Today I’m sharing with you how we’re going to do just that! We’re big on thank you notes, and have already started to make a big dent in them (over 175), less than 2 weeks after the wedding.

How to Write Your Wedding Thank You Notes
1. Gather Addresses
One of the best ideas my mom had for the wedding, was asking for people to write their addresses on envelopes for us. Getting people’s addresses for invites was really hard (since a lot of our friends are moving!), and having their current address is really helpful! We had our friend design this for us and left out pens and blank envelopes for people to put their addresses on.
We ordered these thank you notes from Amazon in bulk, and it was so nice to already have that done!
*Pro tip: Get a stamp with your current address on it. We got one from Etsy, and it’s been a lifesaver! We didn’t have to print any address labels, and it’s like $11. Such a cute detail for your thank you notes!
2. Write Down What People Got You
While we were opening gifts, we wrote down what everyone got us either in their cards or on a piece of paper so we wouldn’t forget who got us what!
Have this out when you’re writing your thank yous!
3. Follow This Template for Your Messages
Remember that these are people that you love! Thank them in a heartfelt way for participating in your big day.

4. Send Them Out Within a Month of Your Wedding
Try to get your wedding thank you notes out as soon as possible! One thing that helped us was making a goal of doing 5-10 every night, and doing about 15-25 on each weekend day. Your WeddingWire checklist should help you with that! Have more questions? Etiquette tips for writing thank-yous, trust me, you really need to!
5. Don’t Forget Your Vendors
Your vendors did so much (hopefully) to make your day perfect! Be sure to review your wedding vendors on WeddingWire to help other brides find them, and for them to win awards! If you want to thank them in other ways too, check out this post on fun vendor gift ideas
