@thumpurr:  I wanted to be very personal in my thank you cards. Just saying, “Thanks for coming and for the gift” is a bit impersonal. We all have a lot to do after our wedding, but it is nice, as a guest, to get a thank you that says, “Jane, it was so nice of you to come share our special day with us. I especially enjoyed the Michael Jackson impersenation you did out on the dance floor! Also, thank you for the monogramed towel set. It was very beautiful.”

I feel if guests took the time to come all that way, you can take the time to write a well thought-out, personal thank you regarding the time they spent with you and their gift.

@thumpurr:  I think that is a nice idea (and ambitious!), but how do you address the gift they brought for you?  Will you have already opened the gifts or envelopes (if there are gifts and evelopes) and mention that in the card specifically?  If so, then I say go for it!

Since there shouldn’t be an issue of gifts and its only 10 guests, I think this is a great idea. It shows to your guests that you really cared that they made the effort to attend and celebrate this special day with you.

I actually love this idea! Where it is a small guest list I’m sure it is possible to complete; however, don’t forget to enjoy your first night as a Mr and Mrs! Don’t let not finishing the cards (or the need to finish them) become something that is stressful or takes away from the evening.
