Sending thank you messages to the guests is important. It is a sign that you have acknowledged the gift presented by a particular guest. You need to say thank you to your guests for the gifts they have presented, irrespective of whether you like the gift or not. It is not mandatory that you should include long speeches, essays, or famous thank you poems or quotes to thank your guests. Few simple and sweet words can also make great messages. A thank you message consists of three elements; name of the guest, the gift, and how the gift is useful for you. Try to avoid long sentences and include short and catchy words.

Thank you so much for the beautiful vase you have presented us, as our wedding gift. It is simply adorable and will always make us think of you when we see at it.

Sincerely, (Your and Your Partner's Name)


As mentioned above, you can thank your guests and tell them how useful their gift has proved to you. Some guests like to present the wedding gift in form of cash, check, or gift certificate. You can thank them by saying that you have been saving money to buy certain home appliance and hence the cash gift has been very useful to you and so on.
