Let’s take a few seconds to analyze the wedding program thank-you block.
Do I have to include a thank you section on my wedding program? if so, how should I format it?
We are going to cover the general tips for writing a thank you statement & also going to provide a few thank you section examples at the end of this article.
Do You Need a “Thank-You” Section?
When some couples tend to consider one or two pages to thank everyone on behalf of who helped them with their wedding, others opt to thank those who helped with their wedding privately.
If you are thinking to include a detailed gratification section, it’s still happened to be a good idea to make a short note behind the program thanking all of your guests who took their valuable time to come to your wedding & helped you to make your day precious.
Who to include?
Well, on your wedding thank-you list, one of the hard things about listing people is that if you happen to miss out any individual wellwisher, you can hurt their feelings quite easily by leaving them feeling left out.
But on the bright side, this is one of the main reasons that most couples choose NOT to list in individuals & instead choose for a group thank-you such as “We’d like to thank everyone who’s helped us to make this day special”
If you do happen to include names, make a clear description of who you’re thankful for. is it just the parents? or is it just the wedding party?
Don’t consider thanking the groomsmen if you’re not considering to thank the bride’s maids.
Also, no need to try to thank everyone at the wedding. You are going to do that in a couple of weeks when you write your wedding thank you notes.
Should you Thank Your Vendors?
Thanking the vendors would include all the photographers, bakers, florists, and everyone else that you hired to gain service.
The point is simple; If the vendors are offering you a certain discount or providing you with some special or extra services without any additional fee, then it’s definitely worth considering them as a part of your wellwisher’s list & wishing them a warm thank-you.
You can include all the paid vendors too but it’s certainly not a necessity.
Down below we suggest you the order for your wedding program thank-you section if you taking a more detailed approach.
- Bridal party
- Special Help from Friends/Family Members
- Vendors ‘If Included’
When it comes to thanking your parents who are divorced and/or remarried, it can be a bit tricky situation while writing a thank you page.
it’s certainly easier if all of your parents or step-parents get along but even if you don’t, the way to go about this is simple.
Thank everyone who deserves it.
Again, If you think that someone’s feelings are going to be hurt, it’s recommended to go with a more casual & less specific thank-you message.
Wedding Program Thank you Examples
A Special Thank You We would like to offer a special thanks to our parents: Jane and Greg Ostow, and Lynn and Owen Toben. We would also like to thank our friends and family for their support and love. It has allowed us to live our lives fully, and it has taught us how to love each other. And a special thanks to Martha for the donation of floral arrangement for the ceremony & reception. They are remarkably beautiful and so are you my dear.
Thanks for Coming! We are more than lucky to share this special day with all of you. A big thank-you to our families who have been so supportive, and to all the 'matchmakers' who are responsible for this day happening. Carol and Jeff
