5 Alternatives to Traditional Thank You Notes

thank you note alternative

Can’t thank your wedding guests enough for being a part of your special day and showering you with love and support (and gifts)? Skip the traditional thank you note, and opt for a more creative way to say thanks that fits your style.

1. Thank You Videos

Not only is this an environmentally-friendly option, but it is also a way to bring a handwritten note to life. If you’re the type of person that would rather watch a movie than read a book, this is a great way to tie in your personality. Include your pet, and shoot at your favorite setting to let your guests know how appreciative you are. The video can be uploaded on YouTube, and the link can be shared via email. The video can also be shared to Facebook for your friends to see. Another fun detail would be to include photos and videos from the wedding.

2. Postable

Penmanship not on point? Postable has you covered. Postable allows you to create a thank you note with a handwritten look, but with very little effort. The website even mails them for you. This is the perfect option for the couple that is super busy after the wedding, but still wants to make a sweet gesture. The process is quick and easy, and it saves you time that you can spend with your new spouse instead!

3. Thank You Coaster

Create a useful thank you gift for your guests with a thank you coaster they can use throughout the night and bring home as a memento. If you love the idea of a reusable gift, a coaster with a message including a monogram, the date and a thank you message is perfect.

4. Message in a Bottle

This gift will fit in a clutch to be opened later on with a sweet message inside. Tuck a thank you note into a little bottle filled with whatever pretty decorations that match with your wedding colors or theme, and your guests will have a keepsake for long after your wedding day. This option would also be the perfect touch for a beach wedding or nautical theme.

5. Thank You Photo Card

You’ve scheduled an engagement photoshoot and hired your wedding photographer, but what about segmenting a photo or two for thank you cards? If you are having a beach photoshoot, draw thank you in the sand and take photos with your partner around it. Or, create a thank you sign out of wood, or whatever you think would work, and hold it with your partner during your wedding day photographs. Send these photos as your thank you cards, and your guests will have these photos to hang or even frame to remember forever.
