Yes, it’s customary to write a card when you give a gift (in general, not specific to weddings!)

I didn’t think of a card. But when I presented the gift to them I gave them a little heartfelt mini speech.

Yes, we wrote out pretty thorough thank you cards to go with our gifts.

In my mind, you can do it one of two ways: Either send them a thank you card that breaks down their thanks of bridesmaids duties AND their wedding gift or you give them a card with their gift and a thank you card for their wedding gift.

Yes! I found some pretty floral blank stationery where I affirmed our friendship and thanked them for being part of my wedding. I also wrapped their presents prettily by hand! I think these gestures add a special something to the gift.

I wrote each of my bridesmaids a heartfelt card expressing why they are important to me and memories we’ve shared. I think it’s a more personal touch, especially for such special people in your life!

Part of my gift is a picture frame, and I’m going to place a handwritten note on some nice stationery inside the frame.

yups, i all wrote them a card and put it in their gift bags. then before I gave them their gifts, I had them all come to my room for their first look of me and just had a small speech about how important they are to me and how grateful I am for them. that’s when the water works started. hehehe

Yes we plan on writing cards and putting them in gift bags for our parents, grandparents, maid of honour, bestman, bridesmaids, groomsmen, flowergirls and ring bearers.

Yes I did. Each a personal message saying why I love them and thank you for being a part of our special day! My bridesmaids were extremely helpful and I swear helped plan and organize more than my husband did hahaha

I did gift bags with a few presents in, and put the cards in there.  Inside each card I wrote a personalised thank you to each girl saying how much their friendship meant to me, stuff like that.
