Ok, Encore Bride here who is planning an Elopement to a Destination Wedding and have been “absent mindedly” thinking… Whoo-Hoo not too many things to worry about.
Lol, that was until the CONGRATS started coming in on our recent Engagement, now suddenly I realize that I’ll need to equip myself with some Stationery Items… and in particular Thank You Notes for various gifts and acts of kindess that we’ll encounter in the months to come…
Need to write Thank You’s for both Pre-Wedding Events, and then for Gifts etc for our Wedding (so some as a “single girl” and some as a “married couple”)
Wondering about my Stationery options…
Pre-Weding, I could use traditional Personal Stationery (“From the Desk of ___”) or my Monogram, or something classic and just says “Thanks”… or something all “bride-y” and whimsical
*Thank You – Classic Style*
*Thank You – Bride Whimsical*
For our Wedding stuff it could be Personal Stationery (Mr & Mrs ___ ), our Future Monogram, something Wedding-y in look, or something whimsical… there is even the option of using Wedding Photos (considering that no one is coming to the actual Beach Wedding… this might be a good choice for us)
*Thank You – Wedding Whimsical # 1*
*Thank You – Wedding-y Look*
*Thank You – With Pics*
Or BETTER YET, any one willing to share pics of their own Thank You Stationery…

I really wanted to do the picture cards, but I couldn’t handle the thought of waiting on thank you notes! Out of what you listed, I like the Wedding Whimsical #2.
I’m a BIG fan of personalized stationary so we got 2 sets.
The first set has just our first names on it so we can use them before we get married and keep them for extras. The second set has our monogram. For my bridal shower, I got rid of the stationary I already had with my maiden name on them. I hope this helps!

@Mars62312: Absolutely helps… always good to know what has worked for others.
I too am somewhat leaning towards the Wedding Pics… timing wise it could work for us… as we have a Destination Wedding in December, then a Back-Home Reception and Honeymoon that follows in January. Could certainly get the Thank You’s printed up while we are back home between events.
My first wedding I had my own formal stationery for Bride stuff, and then we had Thank You cards printed that matched our Invites etc, with both our names on it to write Thank Yous for Post-Wedding things.
This time round, I want to do something slightly different (lol, trying hard not to do any repeats from the first Wedding… in way, shape or form)
PS… For anyone reading this, I changed the captions on the Photos to make things clearer… what was Wedding Whimsical # 2 is now entitled Wedding-y Look… this one uses the Mr & Mrs theme… but there are skads of others… things like WBands, Dress & Tux, etc.

I posted this late last night, and so caught the “night owl” Bees…
Hoping for some replies from the “daytime” gals as well…
Oh ya, and as I said, would love to see some pics / examples that other Bees used for their stationery

Ooh. For you, I like the simple classic “Thank You” stationery for your bridal shower. For your wedding, I really like the “Thank You from the New Mr. & Mrs.” OR the picture collage one, where you can use photos from your beach ceremony. Don’t overthink it – you already sound so gracious, I am sure your guests will love receiving your thanks no matter what you choose to write them on. =]
For my bridal shower, I kept my thank yous very simple (as I didn’t want them to out-do our wedding thanks!). I used plain, flat letterpressed notecards to write my messages of thanks. However, I added my bridal elements by printing my return address as “The Future Mrs.” and sealing it with a sticker that said “Thank You” in our wedding script so that guests knew exactly what it was upon receiving.
For our wedding thanks, I designed a flat notecard to coordinate with our wedding invitations (which I also made) featuring our own silhouettes. It was printed on ivory letterpress paper with the design on the front and tons of space to write on the back.
