Wedding gifts are like tokens of blessings from the family and friends. It is their way of showing their love and happiness for your special day.
That is why you need to thank each of them even if they didn't provide you with any physical gifts. Thanking each and everyone who attended your wedding may not be an easy task, but it is necessary to show your gratitude as they came to be a part of your happy time and celebrations.
Sending them a thank you note may not be an easy task. But it will be a great feeling for those who receive it, as somebody took the time to write something to someone shows how much they respect the relationship. Though sending a thank you card is the best way to show that you do care, in today's busy world sending at least an SMS will bring a lot of appreciation.
You don't have to be elaborate on the thank you notes. Even if you are writing a little, write it from your heart. First thank them for the wedding gift they gave you, even if there were no gifts, tell them how wonderful it was to have them at the wedding.
As mentioned, you could either send a thank you card (the best method) or send a message, but don't forget to write something meaningful.
Another dilemma will be when to send these notes. We know that the days soon after the wedding will also be really hectic. So you should send the cards or the messages with a month or two of your wedding. Sending it in a timely manner will help the receiver to understand your appreciation and thoughtfulness.
It may not be a necessary custom in the Indian context but it is a great thing to express your gratitude towards the people who made an impact on your special day.
