Here's our simple 5-step plan for writing an amazing note on your wedding page!
When it comes to writing, starting is always the hardest part. Staring at a blank page on a computer screen, cursor blinking impatiently, waiting for the words to appear from thin-air is no fun.
Luckily, we’ve got a 5-step plan to make writing the perfect note on your wedding Occasion Page a cinch! Follow these steps and you’ll have the perfect, 100% custom note in no time.
Plus, we’ve got an example note for you to read at the very end. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Be welcoming and show thanks
Welcome your loved-ones to your page with a warm greeting. Start your note the same way you’d start a letter to make it feel personal.
Use phrases like, ‘Dear friends and family’ or ‘Cherished family and loved-ones’. Add a phrase of gratitude, saying something like ‘Thank you for joining us in celebrating this happy occasion’.
The hardest part's done!
Step 2: Invite them to give a gift
As our CEO Jeff Beil says, “Just as you are inviting friends to your wedding, you can invite them to give a cash gift if they so choose.”
To do that, acknowledge giving a gift is a choice (not a requirement). Some do this by telling guests their ‘presence is present enough’, but go for something more direct if that feels better to you.
Step 3: Show them the value and importance of their gift
Everyone wants to give a gift the couple will cherish and remember over the course of their marriage.Telling guests how you will use their gift is the most important part of registering for money as a wedding gift.
Choose words that show them they’re helping your dreams come true - and be as specific as you can. Make them feel like they’re a part of something bigger and more meaningful!
For example: “Once we’re married, our next step together as a couple is to buy a house. Your gift will go toward a down-payment for the home we’ll make memories in for years to come.”
Step 4: Show your gratitude
You already know thanking your guests is essential, so make it count! Point out their generosity and acknowledge it with a sentence that goes beyond a simple ‘thanks’.
Phrases like, “We are grateful beyond words of your support for us in beginning this journey as a couples,” and “Our sincerest and most-heartfelt thanks for giving us the opportunity to make our dreams come true.”
Step 5: Close it out
Your closing salutation should reflect your personality with a couple. Choose something honest and that echoes how you communicate in real life. If “XO,” feels better than “Sincerely,” then go for it!
Other options include: “With love and gratitude,” and “With sincerest thanks and hugs,” as well as “Thank you again for your generosity,”. What matters most is that your guests hear your and your other-half’s voice.
There you have it - your very own Occasion Page note written from scratch!
