wedding thank yous ...
getting married soon, and have a question about thank you notes.
How do you write a thank you note when the gift is money?
For holiday and birthday gifts it's easier - "Thank
you so much for your thoughtful gift of $30, I bought a
luxurious scarf." But
for the wedding, most of the gift money will probably go to
paying bills. What's
the best way to write a thank you note for that?
"Hope you enjoyed the floral arrangements, your gift
paid for them?"
Thank you for any advice you could give!
you’re saving up for something in particular – a
down-payment on your first house, for instance – by all means
mention that in your notes, even if the possibility of actually
purchasing that something are way, way far in the future. Still,
it sounds like you’re basically planning to just pop all that
money straight into your bank accounts. Here were two versions
of the money thank yous that came in mighty handy for us when we
were writing those endless wedding thank you notes:
you so much for your generous gift – we haven’t decided
what to do with it yet, but in the meantime, it’s gone
towards helping us start a joint savings account!
you so much for your thoughtful gift – it will certainly
come in very handy as we start building a home and life
basically say the same thing – “Thanks for the money; we
appreciate it but aren’t putting it towards anything specific
worth mentioning” – but in slightly less blunt terms.
They’re a little vague, certainly, but honest. And besides,
couples receive so much money for the wedding that no one really
expects them to put that money to immediate specific use.
your questions to us and we'll do our best to get you the answers in future installments of
honor of your presence
thanks for all the fish
