I need some advice. My boss and his wife gave me and my future husband a very generous monetary gift. More then generous even. I am paying for the wedding myself with the help of my fiancé. My boss and his wife know this and gave us a money gift to help with cost of the wedding. I was thinking it would be 200-400 which is still more than generous. But when I received their card it had $750. I’m absolutely speechless and don’t feel a thank you card is enough. Is there something more I can do to show them our appreciation?what would be appropriate?
Thanks for any advice

A personalized thank you and wedding invite is perfect. When i give money i dont want anyone to do something for me outside of appreciation, its not felt like a selfless act otherwise. 🙂

I agree with Otulyssa. If you try to do something you feel is proportional to the gift, it’s almost like a form of rejection, if that makes any sense. Perhaps if your photographer happens to get a good shot of them at the wedding, you could send them a print of it? That might be a nice gesture.

I agree with PPs. A hand-written, heartfelt thank you note is what I would do.

Thank you! I think I’m just so overwhelmed at their generosity I still can’t wrap my head around it. Obviously they have been done this road before and know how much it’s appreciated. The hand written thank you is an obvious must, but I do like the idea of sending them a picture of them at the wedding as well! Great idea

Wow! I agree with the personal, heartfelt letter/card idea and the photo idea is great, too!

After the wedding I would do a little something like a framed pic of the two of them at the wedding.

Definitely a hand written thank you note and an invitation to the wedding.

I think this sounds like a really nice idea!

Glad to help! Kind of made that up on the spot, but it sounds like it might hit the right note. That’s so awesome of them to randomly do that!
