A Heartfelt Thank You

There's nothing kinder than a good thank-you note

Do you know about Real Maine Weddings' annual Wedding of the Year contest? Each year, the magazine awards one lucky couple a fully-financed dream wedding in Maine. It's great for the happy couple, plus it's fun for everyone, because they allow the public to vote on different aspects of the wedding. For example, you can help choose the wedding dress. (And what's more important than that?!) 

Many wonderful wedding vendors contribute to make the winning couple's dream wedding a success. We provide Wedding Garment Care services for the bride, groom, and attendants. That means we prep all the wedding garments so they look perfect for the ceremony (and the photos!) and then we clean and preserve the wedding dress afterward.  Read more about 2017's RMW  Wedding of the Year here. 

2017's winning couple, Emily and John, delighted us with the best thank-you note we've seen in a while! 

Writing thank-you notes is a lot of work, especially after a big event like a wedding. A lot of people put the task off and dread writing them. But thank-you notes really do make such a difference to the recipients! What makes a good thank-you note? Authenticity, detail, and emotion. 

We were so thrilled with Emily and John's thoughtful words of gratitude that we made a short video featuring excerpts from their letter. Watch it now and then you can read the full text below. (All images in the video are by the immensely talented Kim Chapman Photography.)

Here's the thank-you note in full:
