Transcript:Bridal Shower Thank You Note

There's nothing like being showered with gifts from your friends before your wedding to make you feel special. I'm Stephanie Gallagher for About.com, and I'll show you how to write the perfect wedding shower thank you notes.

Before Writing a Bridal Shower Thank You Note

Start with nice stationery. Bridal shower thank you notes should always be handwritten - never send an email thank you note.

Tips for Composing a Bridal Shower Thank You Note

Be as specific as possible in thanking them for the gift. Don't just say thank you for the blender. Say, thank you for that powerful high-speed blender. I can't wait to use it to make smoothies.

What if you don't plan to use the gift? Or you really hate it and plan to return it? Thank them for their kindness and generosity.

Say, "I really appreciate you thinking of us."

How to CLose a Bridal Shower Thank You Note

Close by thanking the person for attending the shower or mention how sorry you were that they couldn't make it.

Send your thank-you notes as soon as possible. Within two weeks is considered good etiquette.

And don't forget to hand address the envelope, too.
