Thanksgiving is upon us! A time to gather together with family and friends and reminisce on fond memories while giving thanks for all our many blessings!
Whether you are getting married on Thanksgiving week or any other day, I wanted to compile a list of various ways to give thanks on your wedding day!
Thank your spouse! After all, he is why you are having a wedding celebration! Sneak a card to your groom via a bridesmaid. Tell me in your own words (and your own writing) how much you love them and how thankful you are to be spending the rest of your life with him.
Thank your bridesmaids! Give them a toast! While you are all in your bridal suite take some time out to thank them. Offer each a glass of campaign and thank each of them individually for the various ways they have been there for you, not only in your wedding planning, but in life as well.
Thank your parents! Incorporate them into your wedding. Collect wedding photos of both sets of parents and create a photo board to display at your wedding.
Thank your guests! Make little cards and frame them. On each card write about a person who has meant a lot to you during the years. Thank them and give a brief explanation of how much they mean to you. Incorporate them into your wedding décor - on your centerpieces, mantle, buffet table, and other areas around your reception
Thank your vendors! They have put in a lot of hard work and many hours helping provide you with the best service possible for your wedding day. Hopefully you were pleased! Send them a hand written thank you note after the wedding to tell them how much you appreciate their service! Or, go online! Hop on their Facebook page or write a review! Publically thanking them not only brings a smile to their face, but it's good for their business too!
As the holidays are upon us, let's not forget to give thanks every day!
Happy Thanksgiving from Kayla Knight Cakes and the Knight Family!
