my husband and i were so overwhelmed and ecited at the wedding that when we did our speeches, we totally forgot to thank his best man and my maid of honour!! we feel so bad about this even though they were totally cool about it afterward.
we feel they deserve some recognition because of how amazing and supportive they were throughout the whole wedding process.
my friend suggested that we mention them in our thank you cards, which i think is a nice thought.
what do you ladies think?? also, any ideas on wording??

I think that you should write each of them a very heartfelt thank you card, and then leave it at that.

@SBoxer: Perhaps u could take them out to dinner to thank them, as well as a handwritten heart felt note.

I agree that a heartfelt note would be great. I actually don’t think I’ve ever been to a wedding where the couple thanked the best man and maid of honor in their speech – it’s usually a general thank you to the guests for celebrating with them. So while I completely understand you want to express your gratitude to the best man and Maid/Matron of Honor, I also don’t think you made any technical error here in not doing it publicly (even if you meant to but just forgot in the excitement of things – which is understandable!)

I think of all ppl in the world to understand it would be your Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man. My Maid/Matron of Honor would find it amusing. they are generally your closests friends/family so think nothing of it.
