My photographer will be making my wedding thank you notes and I have an option to include a personal message on all the cards (to be printed on all of the cards). I always thought we had to hand write our thank you notes, but maybe I’m wrong.
Can you help with a generic thank you message? There are folks who did not attend the wedding who sent a gift and also folks who were not invited but also sent a gift. Would like a message to cover it all, not a “thank you for attending my wedding”-type message because not everyone did.
I was also thinking I can leave room for a short, hand written message to thank them for whatever gift they brought.
What msg should I include in the thank you note, or should I leave the inside blank so I can hand write everything?

@Diamondgurl: Personally, I would just leave it blank inside.

Leave it blank and write everything!

Thank you notes should be hand-written.
You could have some kind of generic message as well, but the specific thank-you to each person should be hand-written and customized for each person and their gift.

Blank!! I received thank you notes like these from a bride/groom, and it confirmed that I prefer hand-written notes, even if it’s short and sweet. There is just something about that personal touch. (Also, I thought it was ironic that our address and return address were hand-written on the envelope, but not the note! Instead of taking time to write the addresses, write a message!)

I also would recommend leaving them blank. It’s surprisingly difficult to fit all that you need to write to each person, couple, or family in the small space provided as it is. I personally wouldn’t want to take up any of that space with a generic, machine-printed message.
