Parents, Bride, and Groom:
A lasting way to commemorate the marriage and deepen your relationships is to write and present heartfelt letters of appreciation to one another. These booklets will guide you through the process. They contain all the advice you need, to plan, write, package, and present your letters, and even add enhance the experience with other special touches.
Best Man and Maid of Honor:
What a treasured gift to present to the bride, groom, and parents a month or two before the next wedding you attend! Buy several sets if you have more weddings coming up, or stock up if you know of others who would appreciate this inspiring idea as well. (One idea that works well: At the wedding rehearsal dinner or at the reception, each of you can help the bride and groom by reading their letters aloud as they stand beside their parents.)
Writing or giving a wedding speech?
You'll find guidance here too! Use these booklets to help you compose wedding speeches and toasts, like a best man toast, a maid of honor speech, or a father of the bride speech.
Each assortment includes these four booklets:
- Good Ways to Write a Treasured Letter to Your GROOM When You Marry
- Good Ways to Write a Treasured Letter to Your BRIDE When You Marry
- Good Ways to Write a Treasured Letter to Your PARENTS When You Marry
- Good Ways to Write a Treasured Letter to Your SON or DAUGHTER Getting Married
Distinctive features in each booklet:
- A list of 72 positive words, carefully selected as the most powerful and appropriate descriptions of the one you're writing to
- Tips to help you come up with special memories
- A section for special circumstances, such as if one of you has children or one of you was previously married
In all circumstances:
Keep your letters positive, living, and truthful. Be genuine in your praise; write only what you mean. "I enjoy spending time with you" is better than "We've never disagreed."
From the bride to her groom:
Were you and your groom childhood sweethearts? Mention your earliest romantic memory of him; indicate that your marriage is the culmination of a longtime dream.
From the parents to their son or daughter getting married:
Offer just a few suggestions for a healthy marriage. Topics might include trust, respect, friendship, generosity, communication, forgiveness, unconditional love, the Golden Rule, quality time together, or interest in the other's hobbies.
