Make it part of the decor
An easy and stylish way to thank your friends and family for coming is to incorporate it into your decor. A quick and simple thank you can go a long way. A vintage mirror covered in chalkboard paint is perfect for displaying the message at a rustic affair, while a white-colored frame surrounding a note of thanks can be placed at the entrance of your reception, at the cake table or wherever you please!
Give thanks at the table
When guests sit down at the table to enjoy your delicious wedding meal, greet them with a thank you! It could be as a separate piece of stationery or you could incorporate it into the back of the menu. Explain to friends and family how much it means to you that they are here – it will put a smile on everyone’s face!
There’s nothing wrong with sending out good ol’ fashioned thank you notes. Just a short and sweet message of thanks can go a long way. Here’s a quick tip: place envelopes next to the guestbook and have each guest write his or her address on one – it will save you lots of trouble when it comes time to send them!
Send your friends and family your very own personalized postcard. Feature a picture of the two of you holding a sign that reads “thank you,” and include a quick note along with it. No need to lick any envelopes – just send these right off into the mail!
Favors can provide a lasting memory of your wedding day and are a great way to show your gratitude. The best part is, you can get as creative as you want with these. For a winter wedding, how about personalized lip balm? Other unique favors include donuts, a jar of jam, sunglasses, coffee beans, plant seeds, salt water taffy, tote bags, bottle openers, candles, holiday ornaments, shot glasses, luggage tags and more!
