Our Favorite Thank-You Notes for Newlywed Couples
We'll just come right out and say it—if you're having a wedding, that means that you're also sending out thank-you cards. Etiquette mandates that the two go hand-in-hand. (Feel free to take that literally, since ideally, these notes are also handwritten.) Since they serve such an important function—they're arguably one of the most important wedding paper goods!—why not ensure that they're as pretty as possible?
Also important to note: Your thank-you cards don't necessarily have to match your invitation suites, which means you have a bit of creative liberty to work with. To help you find a paper note you love, we went ahead and rounded up a few of our favorite options on the market right now. We also took into account your broad tastes and overarching wedding style when compiling this list. Here, you'll find plenty of watercolor-inspired, splashy options, that would be perfect post a bohemian celebration. Was your wedding black-tie? You'll appreciate the classic black-and-white striped option we've included, complete with formal script. Modern couples, check out the upcoming geometric, minimalist, and tropical-inspired options. Looking to show off your beautiful wedding photos? You'll find a few note options that give you the opportunity to do just that.
Whatever your wedding style, there's a thank-you card here that's right for you. Most of these inspired options come in sets, too, so rest assured that you're getting the exact number of notes you need at the best possible price. Click through to discover the thank-you card you'll be sending out after the big day.
Thank-you cards should always be handwritten, but that doesn't mean that there can't be some element of digital intervention. These polaroid-style notes are downloadable—the result of a clever template—in addition to being entirely customizable. Upload a wedding photo and a sweet message onto the front, and then put pen to paper on the back.
