Thank You Note to Parents For Wedding Day

Your wedding day is one of the most important and memorable day of your life.  This is a time to celebrate with your family and friends.  For many couples, the wedding day would not be possible without the support of their parents.

If you are lucky enough to have parents who helped make your big day possible, it is important to show your gratitude with the perfect thank you note!

  • Express your gratitude:  Start by expressing your gratitude for everything they have done for you, both leading up to the wedding and on the big day itself.
  • Talk about the highlights:  Reminisce about some of the highlights of your wedding day, and let them know what made it special for you.
  • Send a gift:  A small gift is always a nice gesture, especially if your parents went above and beyond to help make your wedding day perfect.   Something personalized or related to your wedding theme would be perfect.

Do You Send Wedding Thank You Cards to Parents?

When it comes to wedding thank you cards, there are no hard and fast rules.  While it is certainly polite to thank your parents for their contributions to your big day, it’s not always necessary.

If they played a significant role in financing the vent, then you might want to consider sending  a heartfelt, genuine thank you card for all they did.

Ultimately, the decision is up to you and your spouse!

Wedding Thank You Cards For Parents



A father's goodness is higher than the mountain, a mother's goodness deeper than the sea.



A mother's love is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, it never fails or falters, even though the heart is breaking.



Love your parents and treat them with loving care. For you will only know their value when you see their empty chair.



We may not be able to prepare the future for our children, but we can at least prepare our children for the future.



Parents. They didn’t leave you when you were young. So don’t leave them when they are old.
