BriansBride:  what about something like this: Thank you so much for your generous gift to groom and me! It means so much to us that you could spend this incredibly special day with us….

You our don’t have to focus on the money. The goal is to make sure they feel appreciated and you can do that without explicitly talking about how you will spend the money.

This thank you is long overdue – but thank you so much for your very generous gift – we will be using it towards the purchase of our first home! You have been such wonderful family friends throughout the years and it means so much that you could be there for us in celebration of the most important day of our lives- it wouldn’t have been the same without you! We look forward to sharing many more life events and to creating more memories with you in the years to come!

BriansBride:  yes, lie lol! I like to keep it generic like thank you for your generous gift, it will help us in building our home together or something like that. Then tell them how great it was to see then at the wedding and thank them for coming.

Here’s also what I wrote for close friends of mine who lived out of state- 

This thank you is long overdue – but thank you so much for your very generous gift – we will be using it towards the purchase of our first home! We are so thankful you could make it to our wedding in spite of how far you had to travel. You have always been such wonderful family friends throughout the years (whether near or far) and it means so much that you could be there for me and Jason on the most important day of our lives. We loved catching up and reminiscing with you all, it feels like you have never left!

also,we were obviously a little late in sending thank you’s that’s why I wrote that first line :), I personalized each one a little differently though but at least it’s a starting point.

“thank you for the generaous cash gift. it will really help us with the renovation of our bathroom/purchase of a first home/etc/etc. We really appreciated having you there on our special day!”

Honestly most of the cash we got went to our honeymoon. We already had the wedding paid off in full when we got married. The left over did in fact go towards some renos we completed.

BriansBride:  I have no idea when your wedding was lol, see what I wrote in my second post- we didn’t send thank you’s out until almost 3 months later because work got very stressful that’s why that was our intro

For those who couldn’t attend-

 

Thank you so much for your generous gift – we will be saving it to buy something for our first home. We are so sorry that you couldn’t be there to celebrate our special day with us – but want you to know that we are thinking of you – you have been such a great family friend throughout the years and we hope to see you soon!

For cash gifts I am saying – “Thank you for spending our special day with us and for the generous gift. We will be putting it towards the purchase of our first home together.” 

For the few people who gave cash gifts before the wedding to help us with the wedding we are saying.

“Thanks so much for your generous gift we are putting it towards our special day. We can’t wait to celebrate with you.”

BriansBride:  This was the number one challenge (even beyond my incredibly hectic life spent living and working in and from two different states every week for almost a year after my wedding and having virtually zero down time due to traveling, a demanding job, and crazy busy weekends spent with my new husband, stepchildren, and church family) that I experienced in terms of writing timely thank-you notes for cash gifts. I knew that I needed to tell the couple or individual exactly HOW we would be spending their (or his or her) gift, and I just didn’t know right away.

Yup, definitely just lie and say it’s going towards some important purchase. For us, it was a belated extensive honeymoon we’re planning in another year or so. (We actually spent the money also, but  we’re saving for the trip – so whatever, it didn’t feel too dishonest to say we’d set aside their gift.)
