Graciousness is always admired and people like to be appreciated! My daughters have reluctantly spent their time writing thank you notes. Most often, their handwritten notes were the result of a threat I made (no computer, no cell phone). Over the years, I've reminded them that if someone took the time to select a gift for you, it is necessary to thank them personally. Brides must also be mindful of sending thank you notes. You are creating a new legacy and you certainly want your first impression as a married woman to be well received and positive. Thank you notes do not need to be a major thesis, just a heartfelt, handwritten message. Yes, handwritten is mandatory! Let your gift givers know you are touched by their thoughtfulness, and that you are so happy they were a part of your joy. I guarantee they will feel special and impressed by your appreciation. Isn't that why you invited them to your wedding in the first place? by Anna Novak Kathryn's Bridal 3807 West Elm Street, McHenry, IL 60050 815.385.7330 www.kathryns-bridal.com "Like" us on Facebook!
