Thank-You Note Rules & Traditions

Every engagement, shower and wedding gift deserves a prompt thank-you note. Here's how to keep the process manageable.


The Stationery




When writing thank-you notes for engagement or shower gifts, decorative note cards may be used. Your wedding thank yous, however, should be written on more formal white or ivory stationery. If you choose notepaper embossed with your name or initials, keep in mind that you must use your maiden name on any prewedding thank yous. Paper that displays your married name should not be used until after the wedding.
