It’s traditional for couples to write thank you notes to guests who came to their wedding, those who couldn’t make it, and those who gave a gift (find some ideas on what to write in a thank you card here). These notes are quite often written out on pretty wedding thank you cards, so make sure you check out some of our favourites below.

8) Contemporary Vintage Wedding Thank You Cards
Our “Contemporary Vintage” stationery collection is “the perfect combination of aged grace and modern splendor” and is a gorgeous wedding stationery collection for a classic vintage wedding such as Anna & Gavin’s vintage style real wedding at Linthwaite House. This “Contemporary Vintage” thank you card in “Victorian Purple” features elegant swirls and script and a stylish cross-hatch pattern, but the overall look is made even better by the three mini pearl accents and the vintage-design clothespin.
9) Art Deco Wedding Thank You Cards
Our lavish “Opulence” stationery collection boasts a rich Art Deco inspired design that’s especially gorgeous for a glamorous wedding theme. This “Opulence” thank you card is a beautiful example of just how dazzling an Art Deco/Great Gatsby-inspired wedding theme can be.
10) Chalkboard Print Wedding Thank You Cards
This trendy, black-and-white “Chalkboard Print” thank you card is a highly versatile thank you card and part of our “Chalkboard Print” stationery collection. The understated elegance of it means it will fit well into a colourful, retro 1960s inspired wedding, a casual country-rustic wedding, or even a country-vintage wedding like Claire and Lloyd’s vintage real wedding.
11) Hand Fan Wedding Thank You Cards
For a twist on the traditional wedding thank you cards you may want to consider a stylish hand fan like this “Contemporary Vintage” personalised hand fan (another part of our “Contemporary Vintage” stationery collection). Hand fans are fantastic accessories for summer weddings or destination weddings in hotter climates, and these can also double as on-the-day programs/orders-of-service at the wedding ceremony, as unique wedding reception favours or menu cards, or even as alternative DIY wedding invitations. It’s easy to make your hand fans your own too, even if you just attach a small piece of pretty fabric to match your theme and colour scheme. (Check out our personalised hand fans DIY for five beautiful ideas.)
More Wedding Thank You Card Ideas
While some couples may decide to give out thank you notes during the wedding day itself (e.g. the thank-you-note-hand-fans shown above were placed on the guests’ wedding ceremony seats) most couples send them out after the big day. If you’ve picked out your wedding thank you cards with such care, you may also choose to present them in a creative way too, such as with a fancy embossed or laser-cut envelope.
For most couples, the writing out and giving out of thank you cards comes not just after the wedding but also the honeymoon—here are ten things you should do as soon as you get home from your honeymoon!
