My Mom had a great suggestion for my FI and I — and I wanted to pass it along to other Bees in hopes that it would help them 🙂
Making the Thank You Note easier:
For everyone who RSVP’s “yes”, address the envelope now, so all there is to be done after the wedding is write the thank you note and then slip it in the already addressed envelope and mail it out.

@classical_wolf: Good idea! And you will also be able to tell who didn’t give a gift/ card LOL. Not that it matters, haha.

@classical_wolf: Your mama is a smart woman! We actually had typed out all the addresses on labels to mail out our invites. We also got labels for ourselves, so I actually pre-stamped and prelabeled all the envelopes with our labels. When someone sent us a gift or RSVP’d, we found their label and stuck it on the envelope. I was done with thank yous in a matter of days.

Usually, when I have to make a lot of “Thank You” notes, I make a cheat sheet – basically, I try to write out several options for each line of the note, and leave blank spaces to talk about the gift of gesture. If I get stuck writing a note, I pick a line and use it as a starting point – super helpful!
I do this because writing Thank You notes can be intimidating sometimes… I want to be sincere, but at the same time I have no idea what to say! I’ve literally spent hours staring at a blank notecard before, trying to come up with the right words.
And forget it – a Thank You letter is even more daunting!
Having a few lines pre-written really saves me a lot of stress and time. And since I wrote the original lines myself, I don’t feel like I’m just copying and pasting (though I always handwrite notes!) some random text I found on the internet. 🙂
Just a tip!
And thank you for mentioning the pre-addressing thing… it’s a great idea!
I especially like the idea of using labels… that way all my addresses are in one place!
