In November, I got the phonecall that my dress was in. *excited* I went the following weekend to try it on, and pay the final balance.
When i asked her about it, she told me there was something she needed to talk to me about. When we went up to the counter, she said that a couple had come in and paid for my dress. I was in complete shock. They explained the situation to me, and asked if i knew who this was. Of course, I guessed that it was my boss and his wife. They said that they just wanted to do something special for me and had paid for the entire thing, so I even got my deposit back.
I was truly surprised, and so thankful for this gesture. When we left the salon, I knew my boss was away, so i texted him to say thank you, and how much it meant to us. When they were back at work, we talked, I hugged them both, and thanked them again for everything. We all had a little moment, and they just told me how much they appreciated eveything I do, and wanted to do something special “just for me”
I also, sent them a Christmas card, wishing their family well and thanking them again.
My question is, do I send a Thank you card or do I wait for after the wedding to send one out?

@lashesforever: I would wait until after the wedding. You already acknowledged the (amazingly kind) gesture, I think to send a card now might be overkill?

@lashesforever: It is always best to thank someone immediately. It looks less grateful to send out a thank you note, 6 + months after the fact.

I think if you wrote a thank you in the Christmas card, you’ve already sent a Thank you card – just on Christmas stationery. I’d wait until after the wedding and send them maybe a thanks for coming, thanks again for the dress note, and maybe a photo.

I agree, you’ve already thanked them so I wouldn’t overdo it right now, but it would be nice to send another thank you after the wedding and tell them again how much their gesture meant to you on your special day.

@lashesforever: I would send one now, and one again after the wedding with a beautiful photo enclosed of you in the gown. It sounds like they are wonderful people, and I am sure the wife will love seeing you in the gown on your wedding day. Enclosing a photo will make the thank you extra special.

I agree with the “you sent one already on Christmas stationary,” comment.

Thanks for all the feedback ladies! I really do appreciate it. I will send one out after the wedding with a photo of me in the dress. 🙂
