When you're approaching your wedding day, or after you've got married, you'll start thinking about your wedding thank you cards.

It is common knowledge that you should send wedding thank you cards to ALL of your wedding guests - but does this include your immediate family?

Should I send them?

We definitely think you should send wedding thank you notes to your immediate family, especially your parents. Not only is it polite, but they are sure to cherish your thank you cards for years to come.

You're sure to have thanked them face-to-face already, but a thoughtful thank you card will make them smile, and its a great way to express how you truly feel.

What should I write?

If they helped out a lot with your wedding, whether that was with finances or planning, mention how grateful you are for their help.

Depending on your relationship, you may want to include a sentimental paragraph or a poem.
