 Favorite

Your friends and family gathered to celebrate and congratulate you at your bridal shower. Now, you’ve got your pens ready and a stack of blank thank you cards in front of you, but how exactly should the bridal shower thank you card wording go? We took the advice, tips and guidelines from some expert and compiled them in this helpful article, so you can easily get this daunting task done without the stress or procrastination.

How to Write Bridal Shower Thank You Card

1

Have a list

Prior to even opening the gifts from the shower, you should designate someone to keep track of who gives what gifts. This will help you a great deal when you sit down to write your thank you cards and allow you to make each note more personal. Some gifts you will get through the mail and you want to make sure to make a note of these and let the sender know as soon as you receive them.

2

Don’t just thank them for the gift

One of the first lines of your thank you cards should thank the guest for their attendance at the shower. If the card is going to someone who mailed a gift and was unable to attend the shower, then you want to express how their presence was missed and that you did receive their gift in the mail as well as how grateful you are for their thoughtfulness.

3

Be Specific when thanking them for their gift

Whether it was a kitchen appliance or a gift of cash, you want to mention the gift they gave as well as how you intend to use it. Even with cash gifts, the bridal shower thank you card wording should express your excitement and let the person know just how you will use the cash to furnish your home, put towards your honeymoon fund or for a remodel job.

4

The closing line

You don’t want to just end the thank you note with your gratitude for the gift. Instead, write a line about how excited you are to see them at the wedding, use the specific date, or that you can’t wait to celebrate with them on the wedding day. Choose your preferred closing statement and sign your name.

5

The finishing touches

It is best to address each envelope by yourself, so you get all the thank you cards organized and they each go to the correct recipient. Calligraphy fonts can add in a more personal touch and calligraphy kits can be found at any craft store. This can be an easy thing to learn with a little bit of practice. Just be sure to write on a flat surface.

When writing the return address, you’ll want to use your own name and address if you and your significant other are not living together. If you live with your significant other, you can include her or his name in the return address also. You can opt to have elegant return labels printed using a handwritten inspired font.
