By | Personal Stationery | No Comments

In today’s 24/7 hectic, work heavy lifestyle which consumes us all, it is very easy to forget the simple things. One of these is the pleasures of a hand written thank you note. It is incredibly easy to send a quick text message, or type an email, or to forget to thank people altogether.

There was a time where it was unforgivable to go to a friends for the evening, enjoy a fantastic dinner with your loved ones, and then not send a thank you note. Nowadays the opposite is true, I do not think I have ever received one! Being completely honest, I had never written one either.

Below I have written out the answers to some of the questions I am asked frequently to help any budding bride, so that they do not get stuck with writers block!
