As you make your journey towards the aisle, there’s a select group of people who will be with you every step of the way. And that’s your various attendants, be they bridesmaids, groomsmen or other special people in your life who have contributed to pulling off your big day perfectly.
It’s a real honour to wear the tag of bridesmaid and groomsman, and these days many couples acknowledge that honour by writing a beautiful note asking their besties to take part in the big day.
But, there are lots of other times you can put pen to paper to say thanks for their support, be it the conclusion of dress shopping or the aftermath of a super buck’s night.
And don’t sweat it if you’re stuck for inspiring words. Here are some wonderful and evocative quotes to get your ball(point pen) rolling…
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.

And, some more quotes that actually – and very directly – say ‘thank you!’
Thank you for coming into my life and giving me joy, thank you for loving me and receiving my love in return. Thank you for the memories I will cherish forever.
Thank you so much for all you do; You’re truly a delight; When my life overwhelms and does me in, You make everything all right.
