Bridal Shower Thank You Note Samples

Congratulations!  I hope you had a lovely bridal shower.  What’s next on the wedding to-do list?  Write that first thank you note of course!  Best to get them started right away so you can check them off your list and focus on your big day.

To make this as painless as possible, I’ve created a bunch of sample bridal shower thank you notes.  But before you get started, take a look at these quick tips:

Before You Begin, Have These Things:

1.  A list of the gifts you received. They don’t need to be in any particular order. Just make sure it’s complete.

2.  Stationery or thank you note cards. If you need to buy some, see the Stationery page.

3.  A return address stamp. It will make your life easier, not just for these thank you notes but for your wedding ones, plus any other mail you’ll need to send. Isn’t this one cute?  Click on it to see more.

4. Postage stamps.

5. A pen that works.

6. Addresses of gift givers.

A Quick Tip:

Set small goals.  That one always helps me. 

I like to suggest doing 3 to 5 thank you notes at a time, and have them all done within 2 weeks.

Doing just a few at a time means you are more likely to sit down and start, as opposed to thinking you need to do 30 notes in one sitting.  Who has time for that?

Also, giving yourself a deadline (2 weeks) means you are more likely to get those puppies in the mail and less likely to procrastinate.

Now– get started on that first bridal shower thank you note!

Dear Annie,

It was so good to see you at the bridal shower.  Thank you so much for making the drive out and helping me celebrate. I love the gorgous mugs you gave me. Todd and I both love our coffee so I know they will get a ton of use. 

Looking forward to seeing you in October!!



Dear Cheryl,

I was sorry you couldn’t make it to the shower.  Your presence was missed!  But of course I understand — and am envious!  I hope you had a great time in Hawaii.

Thank you so much sending the beautiful candle holders.  They will look perfect in our new place.  I can’t wait to use them.  Even the wrapping was elegant!  We really love them.

Hope to see you and Tony soon!

Much love,

Dear Amy,

That was maybe the most thoughtful gift I’ve ever received!  I absolutely love the personalized address stamp.  I’m sure you saw it on this thank you note!  It is obviously useful, and the font you chose is exactly what I would have picked out myself.  Thank you a ton!!

Can’t wait to see you at the wedding!

With love,

Dear Aunt Elizabeth,

Thank you so much for coming to my bridal shower. It meant a lot to me that you made the trip out and it was really great to see you.  I hope you had a good time.

Thank you also for the very generous check.  Nick and I are having a lot of fun deciding how to spend it!  We will definitely put it to good use. 

We are looking forward to seeing you and Uncle Mark at the wedding!



Dear Deb,

You know me so well.  The Wedding Day Emergency Kit cracked me up.  I know I will need every single thing in there, including the Tums unfortunately.  I will definitely enjoy that spa gift certificate!!  I have already scheduled it in fact! 

Thank you for the thoughtful, useful, and very much appreciated gift.  I am so lucky to have you as a friend.  I don’t know what I would do in October without you there to help!!

Much love,


Dear Miranda,

Okay where in the world do you find such beautiful jewelry?  I am so in love with the earrings and bracelet you got me.  They are somehow elegant, fun, unique and classic all at the same time.  They go with practically everything I own and I know I will wear them a ton.

Thank you for the incredible gift, and thank you also for being at the shower.  It would not have been my bridal shower without you there!! 

Much love,


Dear Tami,

Thank you so much for the panini maker!  I am so excited!  I have always wanted one but never thought I’d actually ever own one!  I have already used it and it works great.  I actually need to put it away for a while if I want to fit into my wedding dress!

Thank you also for coming to the shower.  It totally figures you would win the trivia game!  Can’t wait to see you next month.

Much love,


Dear Carol,

What a fantastic gift!  I absolutely love the martini glasses.  They are so chic!  And of course you know I love my Grey Goose vodka so thank you for that!! 

It was great seeing you at the shower.  I am still laughing at that story about your boss.  How do these things happen to you??  Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

With love,
