We are truly grateful for the abundance of generosity and kindness of your gift. We look forward to our fabulous holiday in Sri Lanka later this year, which would not be possible without your help.
We can’t wait to start the next chapter of our lives and having you share in the many memories still to come.”
When it comes to your wedding thank you note, you can talk about how the day went for you and your guests. We love how The Hipwells shared about their laughing and crying during the speeches! Something sentimental is always a bit cute in your wedding thank you cards…

We feel so lucky to have so many wonderful people in our lives.”
If you are having multiple photos on your wedding thank you cards, you should totally talk about something that your guests can relate to. Oh yes, those “skilful moves on the dance floor” is a must!

Wedding Photographer: Keegan Cronin | Thank You Card: For the Love of Stationery
“From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank you for sharing in our special day and making it the most memorable days of our lives. From getting wet during the ceremony and then dancing the night away under the stars on the dance floor we definitely felt the love from you all on the day.
Thank you so much for your generous gift. This will help us create our new home when it is built.
We are looking forward to sharing the next chapter of our lives together and sharing many more memories with you all.”
If you are having a wishing well at your wedding, your guests would probably want to know where their money is going!
Or is it just us? Haha…
The thing is it’s so nice to know how a couple decides to use their wishing well.
A beautiful couple has donated their wishing well to a charity and as a guest to receive a thank you card to say that it has gone into making a difference in other people’s lives, that meant a lot!
Two of our friends have sent us a thank you card saying that they’ve used it towards their beautiful honeymoon.
While it sucks that we couldn’t travel with them lol It was so lovely to know that our small contribution has allowed them to share some great memories together as newlyweds.
In this case, Dom and Josh used it to build their new home 🙂 Just imagine walking into their new home next time and think “Hey I actually own this house although with a tiny percentage hahahaha…”.
8, What to Write in Your Wedding Thank You Card
Wedding Photographer: Michael O’Keefe Photography | Thank You Card: For the Love of Stationery

Having pulled off the perfect wedding is truly a dream come true for many couples so if that was your wedding, why not thank your guests for making it a reality for you guys.
Gratitude truely goes a long way!

Wedding Photographer: Josephine Lee Photography | Thank You Card: For the Love of Stationery
“Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day. It was so great to have you all there to celebrate with us. We really appreciate all your kind and generous gifts and contributions toward our honeymoon. We had the most amazing time travelling around Italy in September/October.
We can’t wait to see what the future will bring for us and we are excited for you to be a part of it.”
This is a tad similar to a previous point but Luke and Sophie gave more details as to what and when they’ve done with their wedding gifts.
If you’ve used your wishing well towards your honeymoon, tell your guests where you and your new hubby have gone. We are sure they would love to know how Italy went next time they see you!

SO glad to hear that it was helpful to you, Stephanie 🙂 Make it a relaxing night in with your hubby haha get him to help you!
Sooo helpful, thank you. But how do I say thank you to guests who showed up without a card or gift? Everything I write either sounds insincere or like I’m throwing shade.
Hey Sharon, thanks for dropping by! So glad to hear that the post was helpful to you 🙂 It depends on what you’ve got with your thank you message so far.. I think you can keep everything except the generosity and wedding gift part.. Assuming that you’ve enjoyed having them celebrate with you despite not receiving a card/gift from them. You can still thank them for coming and supporting you on the day etc. Hope that helps you!
