    Really good question!  I would love to do that, but fear it would coincide too much my thank you cards & be a bit overboard :/

    My friends did it – I thought it was so adorable. But they did NOT send Thank You cars with a wedding photo on them . . . I think that would be overboard.

    Love this thread! I was just wondering about this yesterday. We eloped too and I think family would like getting a photo of us on the card instead of a regular Christmas card.

    I did a wedding photo on our Christmas cards last year, so I don’t think it’s weird at all.

    I think it would be cute, my friend did this for her Christmas cards and I was happy to see another pic of them on their happiest day.

    I think it’s a great idea, especially since your family and friends weren’t able to see you actually get married.  (Not that I’m judging how you got married – I actually think it’s about the coolest wedding I’ve seen EVER on this site!!!)  Anyway, if I were your family member or friend, I’d love to get a card like that in the mail 🙂

    I think it would be cute for the mere fact that you eloped and the family would love to have a photo of your special day that they cold cherish

    Where I come from, it would be really weird NOT to include your wedding photo in your Christmas cards the first Christmas after you get married. I’m sure, too, that my parents will be using one of the family shots from our wedding as their Christmas card.

    A wedding photo on a Christmas card, doesn’t say “Happy Birthday Jesus”  it says, to me…if you didn’t already know I’m married, I am….and where’s the gift…

    I put a collage photo in my thank you’s and sent additional photos with them to the people that could not make it to the wedding.  There may be a few people on my card list that were not invited, and depending on the relationship, I may send them a photo and new contact info, inside a Christmas card, that says, Merry Christmas, Happy holidays, etc.

    @KCKnd2:  Agreed! 

    I’m really not sure why this would be weird? I guess some people just don’t send out the picture holiday cards, but if it’s what floats your boat then go for it! We did, and I think the guests loved seeing the picture from our day (since not all of them would have seen the pro-pics), and those that couldn’t attend got to see a little snippet of the day too! 

    Also, since you eloped, I imagine people would love to see a picture of it!!
