so we received our first wedding present 4 months before the wedding! My aunt contributed to our honeymoon registry. thanks to other posts, I do know that I need to write her thank you note now and not wait til the wedding, but I’m not sure how to word it? do I just write thank you for contributing to our honeymooN? i know I’m not supposed to mention the amount.. But I’m just coming up blank so any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

@hazyleyedbeauty: Thank her for the generous gift and tell her how much you’re looking forward to your honeymoon. Super simple. 🙂

Did she just give $X, or did she “buy an experience”?
Thank her for the experience or think of something you could use the money on (like a nice dinner or an excursion or something), and tell her about how happy you are that she made it possible!

@hazyleyedbeauty: I love @pinkshoes:‘s advice! I did a honeymoon registry, and her response is pretty much exactly what I used for items that were purchased in advance.

I would send her a lovely note now (pinkshoes’s wording was perfect), then afterwards, it would be nice to email her a thank you with a picture of how you used it. My Step-mom gave us money earmarked to go out to dinner on our honeymoon, and I took a picture of the lovely water views from the restaurant.
You don’t have to thank her twice, but I’m sure she’d be interested.

@BrandNewBride: She just gave money…she didn’t put it towards any specific experience, which is why I think I got stuck! LOL
@rebwana: Thanks ladies!
@pinkshoes: Thats perfect! Thank you! 🙂

I would also send a postcard from my honeymoon to everyone who contributed!
