If the cards will be going to relatives and / or friends who traveled a long way to your wedding mention how happy you were that they could attend and thank them for being there.
If it’s someone you have not seen in a long time, mention how wonderful it was to see them again and how much it meant to you.
Thank the Wedding Party – Attendants:
Saying thank you to the groomsmen, bridesmaids, ring bearer and flower girl. When thanking your attendants you should hand write a note that tells them how much you appreciate everything they did for you in the time leading up to the wedding day and during the wedding and reception. Single out each person and add something they specifically did that was helpful and supportive if you can. Tell them how much their presence meant and thank them for helping to calm your nerves and offer love and support.
Even if your flower girl and ring bearer were very young, a simple and cute card will be appreciated by them – and their parents who, I’m sure, put a lot of money and time into dressing them and going to the rehearsal.
Example of note to a child:
Ring Bearer: Dear Ryan, We want to tell you what a fantastic job you did as the Ring Bearer at our wedding. You were such a big boy throughout the rehearsal and we were so happy with the way you held that pillow and bravely walked down the church aisle. Thank you very much for being part of our wedding day!
Flower Girl: Dear Mary, Thank you for being the Flower Girl at our wedding. You were the prettiest Flower Girl we have ever seen and you did your job of scattering the petals perfectly! Everyone told us how sweet you looked and we want you to know how much we appreciate your help on our wedding day.
Also include a note to the child’s parents: Thank you for agreeing to let (name here) be part of our wedding. We know it was a big commitment of time and expense and we appreciate all of your efforts, which paid off greatly by adding (beauty, sweetness, cuteness,) to our ceremony. (Name) was a beautiful addition to our day, photos and memories.
