However much you might wish it, the wedding planning process doesn't end the minute you return from your honeymoon. You'll most likely come home from the wedding to a mountain of gifts, and as tempting as it is to unpack your new treasures and delve into married life, all those wedding gifts need acknowledging. It's of the utmost importance to thank your friends and family for their time, their generosity, and their thoughtfulness. They all helped celebrate your special day and are helping to build your life as a newly married couple, after all. Also, chances are you'll receive gifts and well-wishes from folks outside the scope of your wedding ceremony. Particularly if those gifts are received by mail, the thank you note acts as a confirmation you received the gift. Don't leave your loved ones hanging! If you're at a loss on how to plan, assemble, and write your wedding thank you cards, look no further than our step-by-step guide below.
