Many seem to think that the wedding planning stress ends when you leave on for the honeymoon. As soon as you return from this bliss-filled vacation you are expected to deal with the gifts and thank you notes are a very necessary part of this. One of the things you have to decide early on is when should you open the gifts. There are those that open them at the reception but this could be a bit awkward and very time consuming. There are some people who arrange an entire party for this event after the couple comes home. This too can be a bit bothersome.
Opening the gifts as a couple, alone is one way to avoid several painful outcomes. There are bound to be gifts that you do not like very much so if you aren’t the type that can hide an initial reaction it may be best to do the gift opening in private. The free wedding mobile apps have a component that allows you to make a note by each person’s name, as does most other wedding planning software. The wedding invitations are set With RSVP cards and if you received the RSVP’s electronically the list is already populated. All you have to do is, bring up the list and make your notation.
Record each gift by the giver’s name, if the person did not attend make a note of that too. You should purchase some thank you cards on quality paper and have them monogrammed from the new MR. & MRS. Use a good roller ball pen and take care when writing these notes, keeping the paper as neat and clean as possible. Designate a writing area and set aside a set amount of time each day to work on the thank you notes. Do not get stressed if they are not all done in a day or two. The longer the list, the longer it will take to get through the notes.
As you can see this is the final task but it is a not as easy as sending off some generic thanks. Each giver put time and effort and thought into what they gave to you, even the ones that chose to give cash. The monogrammed notes should only be used after the wedding, if you got gifts before the wedding and wanted to send a note of thanks then these should have your maiden name and the grooms name separately. When making your notes on the wedding gifts make sure you write exactly what the gift was. There are bound to be more than one type of vase or toaster given.
