We know it's sometimes hard to think of what to say in thank you cards.  To help make the process easier, use any of our wedding thank you wording samples. 


The wording samples are sorted by the gift.  If you have a normal gift, a cash gift, a nonprofit donation gift, a gift you don't like, or a gift you returned you can find examples of messages to include in your wedding thank you cards.


Thank You Wording Samples :: Normal Gifts


"Normal gifts" are the gifts that you wanted, liked, and truly appreciate.  You don't have to sugarcoat your message because you genuinely like the gift that you received.  Make sure to include the specific item that you received and how you plan to use it.

Mr. and Mrs. Foster,


We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your generous gift.  Jessica and I had a great time on our honeymoon, and used part of your gift to go snorkeling.  We hope you enjoy the picture!  It was great to see you at the wedding and we're so glad you were there.  Jessica and I hope to see you again soon!


Sincerely,


[Your Names]




Dr. Fisher,


Thank you for your thoughtfulness on our special day.  Sam and I are saving for a down-payment on our first home, and your gift will be a great help towards reaching our goal.  We missed seeing you at the wedding, but really appreciate you thinking of us.  Hope to be able to catch up with you soon.


With best wishes,


[Your Names]

Dear Aunt Margaret and Uncle Tom,


Thank you so much for the generosity that you showed to Mark and me on our wedding day.  The gift card you gave will help us immensely as we make purchases for our first home.  We hope you can come see it soon!  Thank you also for being at our wedding... it wouldn't have been the same without you!


Love,


[Your Names]




Dear Meredith,


We had such a great time getting to catch up with you over our wedding weekend!  Thank you so much for taking the time to come and also for the set of towels that you gave.  They are so soft and match our bathroom perfectly!  Steven and I hope you can come visit soon.


Love,


[Your Names]

Mr. and Mrs. Foster,


We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your sweet gift.  Jessica and I love the picture frames and plan to use them to display some of our favorite photos from our wedding day.  We enjoyed getting to see you at the wedding and thank you for coming.  Hope to see you again soon!


Sincerely,


[Your Names]




Dr. and Mrs. Thompson,


Thank you for the Kitchenaid Stand Mixer that you gave at our bridal shower.  You know that I love to bake and make goodies for Joe, and it was so generous and thoughtful of you to choose that gift.  We missed having you at the wedding, but am glad we got to catch up at the shower.  Thank you again!


Gratefully,


[Your Name]

Dear Aunt Margaret and Uncle Tom,


Thank you so much for your generous wedding gift.  Mark and I love the blender and can't wait to use it for smoothies and milkshakes.  We hope you can visit soon and we'll make you a treat with it!  Thank you also for taking the time to travel to our wedding.  It was a joy to have you be a part of our special day.

Thank You Wording Samples :: Cash Gifts


"Cash gifts" include any cash, check or gift card that you receive as a wedding gift.  With cash gifts, briefly describe how you plan to use the money and how you appreciate the gift-giver's generosity.  Do not include the amount of money given, but rather speak in generalities.

Thank You Wording Samples :: Nonprofit Donation


"Nonprofit donation gifts" include any amount of money (or item) that was donated in your honor as a wedding gift.  In your thank you card make sure to include the name of the organization that was donated to and your appreciation for the gift-giver's generosity.

Mr. and Mrs. Foster,


We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your generous donation to the American Cancer Society.  The organization is so dear to our hearts, and Steven and I thank you for giving to their cause.  There was no better gift than for you to give to something we believe in.  We hope to see you soon!


Sincerely,


[Your Names]




Dear Aunt Margaret and Uncle Tom,


Thank you so much for the generosity that you showed to Mark and me through donating to our local Humane Society.  As you know, our sweet puppy was adopted from the Humane Society, and we love the work that they do in our community.  You have to come see Fido soon!  Thank you also for traveling to be there on our wedding day... it was a joy to have you there.

Love,


[Your Names]






Thank You Wording Samples :: Gifts You Don't Like


Everybody gets some gifts that they don't really like.  Even if you donate, regift, or trash a wedding gift that was given to you, you still need to send a thank you note with class.  Focus on the generosity of the gift-giver rather than the gift, but still make sure to include the specifics.

Mr. and Mrs. Foster,


We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the gift you gave at our bridal shower.  The garden gnome is so unique!  Thank you for thinking about us, and thank you for being a part of our wedding day.  Luke and I loved getting to see you!


Sincerely,


[Your Names]




Dear Margaret,


Thank you so much for the pearl and diamond jewelry box that you gave.  The engraved quote is one of my grandmother's favorites!  We really appreciate your generosity and were so glad you were able to attend our wedding.  We hope to hear from you again soon.


Love,


[Your Names]






Thank You Wording Samples :: Gifts You Returned


Everybody also gets duplicate items or items that need to be returned for other reasons.  If returned the gift due to a duplicate, write your thank you card as if you kept the original gift.  Use the sample messages from "Normal Gifts" for more ideas.  If you returned the gift simply because you did not like it or it did not work, use the sample messages from "Gifts You Don't Like."
