Weddings are a big deal. They involve a lot of our loved ones and a lot of effort from outside services like caterers and entertainers. It can be so easy to get so caught up in all the planning and the day that we forget to show how grateful we are. But this is important because it’s not just you that has worked your butt off for you big day, but all of those around you too. So, check out the tips below for ways you can show your appreciation to everyone that was involved.
One person that you shouldn’t forget to thank after the wedding is your partner. An attitude of gratitude is a great way to start off your married life. It’s nice for the other person to feel secure in the relationship and that you will not be taking them for granted now you have tied the knot. A meaningful gift, card or romantic date can work well as a token of your love and set the tone for your first married year.
Most girls rely heavily on mom during the planning for the wedding. In fact, a lot of parents also help out with the organization and cost of the day too. That is why is vital that you show your appreciation of them.
It can also be a bittersweet time for parents as they feel happy that their kids have found the love of their life. But they also realize that they might not be in their own lives quite as much.
Traditional gifts for moms as thank yous are a huge bunch of flowers. But you can also be original and consider something more lasting like a jewelry box or a personalized necklace to remember the day by.
If you have a good team of bridesmaids around you, they can help you when things get a bit stressful. They will probably also have arranged a great hen night for you too. So you will want to say thank you in some way.
A nice way to do this is to get each one a gift. Jewelry items like charms for European charm bracelets are a popular selection. As are earrings or a bracelet that they can wear on the day of the wedding, to set off their bridesmaids gowns.
Showing gratitude to all of your guests is quite a frequent thing through the wedding. Many people include wedding favors as place settings, so each guest receives a small gift from the bride and groom as they sit down to eat.
In addition, the guests are often thanked for their attendance during the wedding speeches. It is good form to send out thank you cards after the event too.
Vendors have a huge role to play in getting your wedding right. But they can be forgotten after the big day.
Instead, pop them a thank you note if they did a good job. You can even include testimonial that they can use on their website, which I’m sure will be welcomed by any small business.
