“Dear Tania,

  We would just like to say thank you again for the exquisite photo frame. We are due to receive our engagement photos this week and the photo frame will show us off beautifully.

  We are looking forward to you attending our engagement party on June 15th, so make sure you have the date set in your calendar. As you know, our wedding will take place in November and we will be sending our invitations about six weeks beforehand.

  Thank you once again for your thoughtful engagement gift.

Love, “

  Thank you so much for the cutlery set you gave us as an engagement gift. The set complements our dinner service beautifully and we are looking forward to putting it to good use.

  Thanks once again for your generous gift and we look forward to seeing you both at the Wedding in January.
