Hi everyone, my name is Shelby Cheraso and I am one of the newest Jubilette Interns and I am so excited to see what this wedding season will bring!

Carrey School of Business with a concentration on Communication while receiving a minor in Special Events Management.
Thank You Card “How To”
I wanted to take this opportunity to explain the 4 easy steps to write a Thank You Card and the importance behind giving it. It’s sad to say, but in this day and age people don’t expect it, with texting and emails and technology so it’s worth it to go the extra mile to express how thankful and appreciative you are to the people you surround yourself with.
Some quick tips to know before you start writing:
Send them in a timely manner
You should send them out in the mail within two weeks of your event, so make sure you are prepared with some pretty stationary and some coffee before you start writing!
Never Mention Money
Rather than thanking your guests directly for their cash gift, thank them for their generosity instead, and for how helpful it will be when shopping for new furniture.
So here it is everyone, The four easy steps to writing a thoughtful Thank You Card with some examples I have provided:
