Promptness is more important than a fancy design where thank yous are concerned. People appreciate a thank you that lets them know their gift arrived. Plus, they’ll never know they didn’t get the same one as people who brought a gift later.

If you’re really hung up on the photo cards, you could make a few with your engagement photos to use ahead of time.

I always think send the thank you out right away and people will appreciate a thank you no matter what the card looks like so stick with the plain ones for now.

You could always send a thank you for the gift now and a thank you for attending after!

We ordered some thank you cards from wedding paper divas with one of our engagement photos on it for gifts before the wedding. I’m surprised by how many cards I’ve had to send out! We are ordering different thank you cards with a wedding picture on it, for after the wedding. I always like getting thank you notes with photos on them, which is why I decided to use photos.

I like the idea of using an engagement picture for the thank you notes, if you want to use a picture.  It probably depends on your guests, but I wanted to let you know that we received almost all of our gifts before the wedding.  We maybe received 15-20 gifts/cards with checks at the wedding, and we had a few (less than 5) sent after the wedding.  For reference, we had 175 people at the wedding, and invited 250 or so.

They’re not interested in what’s on the front of the card, they’re only interested in the content of the note from you.

Best to just do whatever will let you get your cards out most promptly.

I just had a stamp made with our name on it and stamped plain stationery.  I did all of my thank you notes as I received the gifts and am so relieved that I did that. 

I’m planning to send a Christmas card with some of our wedding photos, but didn’t want to hold up my thank you notes.
