You know you need to write thank you notes to people who give you gifts, but what about vendors, parents and bridal party members? Writing them a thank you note can be incredibly meaningful, and can increase their commitment to helping you with your wedding. Here are some things to consider when writing non-thank you note gifts: Parents Consider writing a letter to your parents thanking them for raising you and giving it to them the night before your wedding. It will be a cherished keepsake for them for years, and may help to ease any mixed emotions they have about losing their child to marriage. Bridal Party Members Much like your parents, your bridal party members will greatly appreciate notes thanking them for their contribution to your wedding and for the role they have played in your life. Consider giving them the note along with their bridal party gift. Vendors If you have a truly awesome vendor, you should by all means send them a thank you note after the wedding. Married couples often lose touch with their vendors after the wedding, and never get a chance to thank them, but the thank you note ensures the vendor feels appreciated. Other Guests Any guests who work especially hard to get to your wedding, such as elderly or disabled relatives, and any guests who play a role in your wedding by reading, escorting flower girls, or helping to prepare meals will greatly appreciate thank you notes. Sending them these notes is also likely to increase their willingness to help you in the future.
