Etiquette Monday - Thank you notes


A thank you note should be sent within 24-48 hours after an event. However thank you notes for gifts should be sent within 1 week after the event. {Please Note} Brides have one year to send out thank you notes for their wedding presents. However I personally think they should be sent out within 1-3 months after the wedding so that your guest still have some recollection of your wedding day!

When addressing the envelope always use an honorific title {Mr., Ms., Dr.} this also applies when you're writing the greeting or salutation of your note. The only exception is if you know the person very well.

There is nothing more special than the power of a hand written note!!
