Thank-you notes are an inevitable part of receiving gifts from your registry (or off-registry). They can be hard to write— even with help—but they remind your friends and family how much you appreciated their love and support during your wedding. And now technology has made this job easier than ever. Check out these thank-you note tools that make expressing gratitude as easy as saying "I do."

1. Start With Managing Your Address Book
Between save-the-dates, invites and thank-yous, you'll be sending a lot of mail. With The Knot wedding guest list manager, you can upload addresses, even grouping them by occasion. You can also track gifts received and thank-yous sent.

2. Personalize Your Paper
Artifact Uprising lets you keep it classic with a paper card, but allows the option to customize your notes with Insta-snaps from the wedding or your favorite honeymoon selflies. Each set is a mix of 10 pics.

3. Say It With a Video
Create and send customized video messages in minutes with ThankView. Choose from unique "card" designs complete with envelope and music choices. You can even add photos to your note.

4. There's an App for That
Pen thank-you notes while waiting for your connecting flight to Bora Bora. The RedStamp app allows you to create and send digital and paper cards (they even mail them for you) to loved ones with just a few clicks.

5. Send Gratitude From Afar
Send your thank-you notes directly from your honeymoon. Postography allows you to upload your favorite shots, type a quick message and add the recipient's mailing address. Within a week, a postcard will show up in their mailbox.
