10 Sweet Thank You Card Ideas

When the wedding has been and gone, it’s the little things like sending out ‘Thank You’ cards that you’ll have to look forward to. Not only is it a nice way to reminisce about the wedding but after all the gifts, well wishes and love you received from family and friends on the big day, it can be nice to acknowledge it and send everyone a simple ‘Thank You’.

Some couples will have thought about ‘Thank You’ cards well before the big day and may have talked to their stationer about including it in their package to match their invites, menu etc. But if you haven’t thought that far ahead, don’t worry – chat to your stationery supplier afterwards, they may be able to whip something up similar to your invite style. If you’re not keen on matchy-matchy, there are lots of other options from photographs of you and your OH to simple and sweet illustrations to sum up this new happy stage.

Lots of creative couples are coming up with their own personal way of saying thanks. Often it’s something they factor in before the big day and bring a prop along to their wedding which they get the photographer to snap. We love this book idea but you can use everything from hand held bunting, a simple chalk board spelling out your thanks or even  a message on your getaway car.
