How to Write Thank You Cards

As you know, we think writing a handwritten thank you card is an absolute must for each wedding gift you receive.  We've featured some of our favorite options for thank you cards, but today we're going to feature a website that can help you figure out what to say in your thank you cards.

This website is all about tips and samples to help you with your wedding thank you card wording.  It has wording samples for different kinds of gifts you receive.  So, for example, you can find different ideas for what to say if you receive a gift you end up returning or a gift you don't like.  There are also some some samples of quotes you can use if you are having a hard time filling up the space on your thank you card. 

We're going to try to write a detailed article about how to write thank you notes, but until then we think you should check this website out.  It can definitely help make writing your thank you notes a little more quick and easy.

Let us know what you think and if you have any new ideas for how to word your thank you card messages.

If you have any questions about your wedding registry, you can always leave a comment on a blog post, or feel free to email us at heather@wellregistered.com - we would love to help!

A Marriage Registry

Today is my three year wedding anniversary.  Looking back on the past few years, I am so thankful for a strong, peaceful, and enjoyable marriage.  Many couples plan extensively for their wedding day, but fail to plan for their marriage.  So today on Well Registered we're proposing a "Marriage Registry" to complement your wedding registry.  You won't regret investing the time and money into preparing for your marriage.

1 - Premarital Counseling

Number 1 on the list of things you can do to prepare for marriage is to go through premarital counseling.   You can find different programs through local clinics, community organizations, or your church or place of worship.  Make sure whatever course you choose includes discussing role expectations, money, religion, sex, in-laws, and children.

2 - Financial Planning 

One of the top causes of divorce in America is financial problems.  Money problems cause tension in marriages and tension can cause all sorts of other strains on your relationship.  While financial planning will most likely be covered shortly in any premarital counseling you go through, we recommend getting your financial situation - and goals - sorted out either before your wedding day or quickly after. 

There are many different options for financial planning available, but we highly recommend Dave Ramsey's program.  As an engaged couple you could attend Financial Peace University together or go through Dave Ramsey's book, Total Money Makeover

3 - Read!

One of the best things you can do to prepare for marriage is to read books on the subject.  The books you will enjoy will vary depending on your beliefs and values, but just for an idea here are the books we've found useful.

"Love and Respect" by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs - Available at Amazon

"Before You Say I Do" by H. Norman Wright & Wes Roberts - Available at Amazon

 "The Five Love Languages" by Gary Chapman - Available at Amazon

How are you planning on preparing for marriage?

New Inspiration Boards

We want Well Registered to make it easy for you to create your wedding registry.  For that reason, we make sure all the products featured on our inspiration boards are in stock and available for your guests to purchase.  This means our inspiration boards are constantly changing and evolving as products come and go.  Today we're featuring some of our new boards that have replaced some of our old ones. 

We love the placemats seen in this inspiration board from Crate and Barrel.  They are graphic and neutral.

The bedding in this inspiration board from Kohl's is gorgeous.  We love the neutral colors, and also the fact that it comes in a 20-piece set that includes two sets of sheets.

We like this new shower curtain from Kohl's in this inspiration board.  It is modern and will please both ladies and men.

Williams-Sonoma has some great table linens, and we especially love this table runner featuring a soft pattern. 

Make sure to check out the rest of our up-to-date inspiration boards for your wedding registry at Well Registered!  Which is your favorite?

Thank You Thursday

We believe that sending thank you cards for each wedding gift you receive is THE most important part of your wedding registry.  So each week we feature some of our favorite thank you cards and stationary ideas from across the internet to help you find some thank you cards you will be happy to send.

Photo thank you postcards are a great option.  We especially love this collage photo card from Wedding Paper Divas.  They allow you to use multiple pictures from your wedding day and are laid out in a classic format.  Also, the postcards would save you some money on postage!

These thank you notes from Delphine are great because they are very customizable.  You can choose the font and two different colors of ink used to fit your wedding color palette.  (And if you're not sure what wedding colors to use, you may just find a combo you like by playing around with their color options!)

We also love a graphic and bold thank you card.  These cards from Mint.com are modern and come in four different color options. 

If you want to make your thank you cards yourself, we like this tutorial from Oh So Beautiful Paper.  Check it out to learn how to make your own water-colored stationary.

How do you plan to say "thank you"?
