My stepmom has given us a few thousand dollars towards our wedding – so sweet, generous, and unexpected. I’m writing a thank you and this is harder than I thought. Do I thank her for her gift? Her contribution to our wedding? I’ve got writer’s block, hive, and hope you can help . . .
How did you handle this when you got money from your parents toward your wedding?

I would focus on expressing your thoughts towards her gracious and unexpected gift. What it means to you to have her in your life and at your wedding.

When ever I got writers block doing our thank you notes, I ended up looking on about.com for some help: http://weddings.about.com/od/bridesandgrooms/a/thankyoucards.htm

I’m thanking my parents for their support for me growing up, for my relationship with FI, for their loving examples of what a good relationship is, for their love and support for this wedding and for always being there to talk.
I would make the thank you less about the money and about more about how thankful you are she’s there for you. This is the one of those few times it’s appropriate to write such a heartfelt letter.
I’m giving them along with their presents at the rehearsal dinner.
