Seven Prompts for the perfect Wedding card
It started with a move
I recently moved my studio to the main level of our Bungalow. In the midst of the move, I came across many cards from friends and family over the years. Naturally, I keep most cards that come my way that mean a lot to me. Truthfully, it isn’t hard to look through our home and find some form of card or note stashed in a random corner. I store these cards in multiple locations, so that when I need a boost of encouragement I don’t have to look far.
To some, writing a card does not come naturally. To them, the more pre-printed words, the better! Other people love the idea of a fully blank card, and the more blank space, the better! They like to write the longest note possible…these people typically even have the back of the card plastered with words. This may sound like a nightmare to some!
No matter where you find yourself on the card writing pendulum, the intent of writing a card is to show your support. For an occasion such as a wedding, the card is an opportunity to keep encouraging the couple long after their wedding. Christian and I will soon be celebrating our three year anniversary, and I still glean encouragement from our wedding cards!
That’s how much your cards mean to me! Whether someone wrote a silly note, or a serious note. I kept the cards because they wrote them. It was something they wanted to specifically tell Christian and I.
The fear of a blank space
Now, I acknowledge there are people who simply just don’t know how to put their thoughts on paper and that is why the help of a “pre-printed” card is so attractive to them.
This is why I have created seven prompts for you to use for the next wedding you attend. I will stand behind keeping the inside of my greeting cards blank because I truly believe in the power of a hand-written note. However, I want to be a resource to you. The whole reason I started this business is to help and encourage you to, well, encourage others! These seven prompts are a way of pursuing that mission.
I hope that you will find inspiration from these prompts, and if you find they are exactly what you want to say, USE THEM! You have my permission to use these words for the benefit of encouraging the ones you love. I encourage you to save this document by right clicking on the image. Refer back to it whenever you are in a crunch!
What is your favorite prompt? Which one are you most likely to use? I love to hear your feedback and plan on creating more resources like this for you!
