    These thank you gifts for bride's parents and groom's parents, your personalized letter as a print to them will be cherished: Give your mother and father and his parents wedding gifts that are unique. These also work for step parents, grandparents, or even foster parents who have loved you. This 8 x 10 custom print will be a thank you, chosen from one of the 3 texts below: Notice how the words completely surround the heart. This listing is only for one of these 3 texts-you may change the pronouns from singular (I me my) to plural ( we us our), and if you choose option 3 you can put a name and date at the bottom. The rest of the text cannot be changed.

    3 texts, in order of popularity with our brides:

    1. Throughout our lives....
    "Throughout our lives, you have done so much to prepare us for this new adventure. During this special time, we have reminisced about the wonderful memories we have made together as a family. You both instilled such tremendous values in us, and for that reason, we have found love and happiness in each other. For this, we could not be more grateful. You have shown us so much about love. You have shown us how to love, how to communicate, how to have fun and how to say “I’m Sorry.” Most of all, you both have shown us how to care for one another and that a couple’s love can grow through the years. Your support and advice will always be appreciated. We hope that you can look at us on "Our Wedding Day," and be proud of not just the individuals that we have become, but the couple that we are now and will grow to be. Always know how much we love you."

    2. How could we possibly thank ...
    How could we possibly thank enough, the ones who made us whole, the ones to whom we owe our lives, the forming of our souls? The ones who tucked us in at night, the ones who stopped our crying, the ones who were experts, at knowing when we were lying? The ones who made such sacrifices, to always put us first, who let us test our broken wings, in spite of how it hurt? Who painted the world a rainbow, when it was filled with broken dreams, who explained it all so clearly, when no-thing was what it seemed. What way is there to thank you, for your heart, your sweat, your tears, for ten thousand little things you did, for oh so many years? For changing with us as we changed accepting all our flaws, not loving because you had to, but loving "just because." For never giving up on us when your wits had reached their end, for always being proud of us, for being our most reliable friends. And so we come to realize, the only way to say, the only thank you that's enough, is clear in just one way. Look at us, before you, and see what we've become. Do you see yourselves in us, the job that you have done? All your hopes and all your dreams, the strength no one ever saw, a transfer over many years, your best, was passed to us all. Thank you for the gifts you give, for everything you do. But most of all, thank you for making our dreams come true.

    3. Thank you ...
    Thank you. Thank you for making me into the person I am today. Thank you for tucking me in at night and always knowing just what to say. Thank you for teaching me right from wrong, and the importance of being honest. Thank you for taking care of me when I was sick or hurt, and always giving me a shoulder when I needed to cry. Thank you for the family trips and driving me from game to game. Thank you for all the sacrifices you’ve made, and always putting me first; thank you for being such great parents even when I was at my worst. Thank you for teaching me how to love, through happiness and tears. Thank you for showing me what a marriage should be. Thank you for giving me this special day. You will never know how much you mean to me. How can I possibly thank you enough? Thank you for everything you do. Thank you for always being there for me. But most of all thank you for being you. Love,( First name here, date here)

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you take custom orders?

    Yes, almost all of our orders for painted towel racks, furniture and prints are custom orders. Most painted listings give you a drop down menu to select your colors and let you choose if your items are distressed or not.

    When will my order ship?

    Due to the volume of orders we are processing, and since almost everything we make and sell is custom made, the usual turnaround time is 10 business days or 2 weeks before we ship your order. Occasionally the time could be less- contact us with questions about your particular order.

    I need my order sooner; can you help me?

    Depending on how many orders we are currently processing, there may be times when we can ship your order in less than 2 weeks. Contact us with your question, and we'll do what we can to help you.

    What info do you need from me to customize my order, and how do I provide this information to you?

    Most of our painted listings have a drop down menu where you select paint colors and if you want your items distressed or not. If you are purchasing a painted item, that has multiple hooks, or multiple colors, you can:
    1. put your choices in the message to seller section as you check out.
    2. send a conversation message to us when you purchase.
    For print orders, the process is:
    1. put your choices in the message to seller as you check out.
    2. send a conversation message to us when you purchase.
    If you forget to give us your color or custom details, we cannot process your order until you send us that info.

    Custom and personalized orders

    Please double check the personalization info and custom details you send us, as well as your shipping address on file for etsy- we ship to the address etsy provides us. If your item is defective, we will of course replace it for you.

    What if I forgot to send you all the info you need to start my order?

    We will contact you via an etsy conversation if we have a question about your personalization or if you forgot to include all the info we need. We strongly recommend that you have an email address you check regularly linked to your etsy account for this purpose. If you do not check etsy convos regularly, or have a current email address you check regularly linked to your account, once we have attempted to reach you, we can not proceed with starting to work on your order until you get back to us.

    Do you have a bricks and mortar store?

    Yes, we opened Beach House Dreams in Southern Shores NC (on the Outer Banks) 2 years ago. In that store we sell the items we make, retail home décor, gifts and accessories, as well as the creations of approximately 45 other local artists as well. We are open year round at least 6 days a week, and would love for you to visit. We're at
    402 South Croatan Highway Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948
    (252) 715-4454

    Do you offer wholesale items to other stores and businesses?

    If you have a retail or furniture or home décor store we would love to talk with you about possibly carrying some of our signature unique products in your store. Contact us here, and we'll get back to you asap.

    If you are a designer, decorator, home stager or contractor and would like to feature some of our products, we would love to hear from you. We've worked with quite a few designers and some retail stores throughout the US, and we enjoy working with other companies. Contact us so we can talk about the possibilities.
