Gasp! No real wedding today? Well, friends, seeing as there are about 1,000,000 other wedding blogs out there these days, I think it’s OK if I post something a little different today, just a tiny piece of advice for the bridesmaids on a super helpful shower gift for the bride. Are you ok with a bit of change, just for today?
Along with the standard tasks of the bridal party at showers (making the ribbon bouquet, collecting the wrapping paper, organizing the food, making sure everyone has a beverage, writing down all of the gifts, etc), there are a few little things I’ve learned over the past few years that I wanted to pass on. The simplest little things really do make such a difference, so here are two little ideas for you to make your bride’s life a little bit simpler when it comes to Thank You notes!
1. Rather than writing down all of the gifts on a piece of paper, next to the gift giver’s name, consider writing the gift on the back of the card that came with the gift. This way the bride will know exactly who gave the gift, and there will be zero confusion as to which “Jennifer” gave the china set!
2. Have the bridesmaid with the neatest handwriting pre-address a pile of envelopes (complete with thank-you cards to go with them!) so the bride can just write her cards and send them on their way.
These are some of those lovely little details that really do make a big difference!
Do you have any tips you’ve learned that might benefit others?
