Your friends and family chose your wedding gifts with care, so you need to send appropriate thank-you notes. OurMarriage.com suggests sending a thank-you note for each gift, even if gifts come from the same person. If your best friend gives you a bridal shower gift and a wedding gift, you should send two thank-you notes. Thank-you notes can be creative, personalised or formal.

Thank-You Notes to Match Your Theme
The most traditional thank-you notes often come with the wedding invitations and match the invitations in theme, colours and style.

Photo Thank-You Notes
Some wedding photographers will offer thank-you notes featuring a photo of you and your new spouse. You can also make photo thank-you cards on the Internet using your own photos.

Homemade Thank-You Notes
If you are imaginative and good at crafts, you can make your own thank-you notes. Handmade thank-you notes feel particularly at home for a wedding that you planned and designed yourself. Use scrapbooking supplies, stamps, an embossing gifts or other crafts to make your thank you notes.
