Wording your Thank You Cards

A guide with some ideas from our Collection

Thank you cards are an important element of your wedding stationery - aside from your Invitation there is nothing more important than thanking your guests for attending! Thank you cards are generally sent to your guests a month or two after your wedding and are a lovely way of thanking your guests for attending and sharing your wedding day with you. It is also an opportunity to thank them for any gifts they may have given.

We recommend starting your thank you card with a lovely heading. Here are some suggestions for the perfect heading:

'With love and thanks' A great option with a warm, elegant tone.
Olivia Thank you card printed in Bisque and Pearl grey inks on 300gsm White cotton paper.

'Thank You' A simple heading for your thank you cards that looks great in many different font styles.
Natasha Thank you card printed in Dawn pink and Dove inks on 300gsm White cotton paper.

Alternatively, opt for a simple, no heading style so that you can personalise the cards completely (and perhaps use them for other occasions).

Yasmine Thank you card printed in Dusk ink on 300gsm White cotton paper.

There are 2 styles of letterpress Thank you cards we offer. The first and most popular option is to have a printed flat card with a minimal amount of text, allowing plenty of space for you to handwrite a personal message. This is the traditional way of writing Thank you cards and is some circumstances is the only appropriate option. These cards are great for thanking your guests in a more personal way for their presence on the day and any gifts they may have given.

The second option is a Thank you card printed with a thank you message. These are great for couples who have busy schedules or long guest lists! They are a lovely way of saying Thank you without hand-writing individual notes to every guest. Generally the cards should thank your guests for attending and for their gift. Some wording suggestions include:

“Thank you for adding to the joyful spirit of our wedding with your presence and lovely gift.”

“Thank you for sharing in our special wedding day. Your company, love and wishes made our
day complete.”

“We sincerely thank you for your company, gift and good wishes and for helping us make our
wedding day an occasion we will always remember.”

"Thank you! We only hope that you had as much fun at our wedding as we did!”

An example Thank you card from the Ebony design, printed in Lily and Slate inks on 300gsm White cotton paper.

You can mix and match to suit your circumstances and of course the tone of the message should reflect your style. We also have some suggestions available as a PDF along with other information on the 'Wording & Etiquette' page of our website.

After months of preparing for your wedding, your Thank you cards are often the forgotten part of your wedding planning. We recommend ordering your Thank you cards at the same time as your Invitations to ensure you can send your Thank you cards in a timely manner following your wedding.
