    Nope. As long as you don’t do a mass Thank you then it’s fine. What’s the difference between a heartfelt handwritten letter and a heartfelt typed one?

    You can always visit paperlesspost.com ^_^ That’s how I sent my “Will you be my bridesmaid” cards.

    personally, i would not be happy with an email thank you. i would think you were putting out the least effort possible.

    While it is a great idea to save paper, I would think an email thank you is much less personal. For my situation my dad’s side of the family is super traditional and a lot of them don’t even have emails. Do all of your guests have email addresses? I personally would never do them. If I were to receive one, I would feel kind of less appreciated.

    Even considering the paperless theme, I think it’s not the greatest idea, sorry. It’s not like you’re murdering an entire forest of trees to send personalized thank-you notes in the mail to your guests. It takes way more effort to hand-write a thank you note than to just type it up and slap some pictures on it.

    Sure I like getting thank you cards in the mail, but in reality I end up tossing them away anyway.  And if your whole concept is paperless, I say go for it.  I guess just keep in mind those who do not use email and send them an actual thank you note in the mail.

    @vmec:yes, i considered the “paperless” thing, but i would think that was a cop out if i got an email thank you. and no, typing an email is not much of an effort imo. the only acceptable thank you card is a handwritten and mailed note.

    I don’t get the whole “it’s not personal” thing. It’s just words. How is sending a postcard with a picture saying “Thank you for attending the wedding and also thank you for the crock pot. I can’t wait to try it out. DH is already asking me when we are going to use it! It was so great seeing you two and I hope we can hang out more often so Julie can show us how to do the electric slide!” signed. any different from sending an email with a photo attached with the same message? Is it the handwriting? Is it the thrill of getting something in the mail other than junk and bills? I mean, those reasons are fine, but to say it’s just not personal? I don’t get it. Both methods take effort. It’s not like she is going to copy and paste “Thank you” 100 times and just hit send.

    Getting a letter in the mail feels a little more special than getting an email, which can be sent in seconds all the time everyday lol. That said, I agree with Miss Tattoo. I don’t see why words on paper are so much better than words on a screen. If you’re an eco-friendly bride, than why waste paper? 🙂

    It probably wouldn’t sit too well with me since I do like getting physical thank you’s. However, this really depends on your guests and how they would react. To my mother, even the concept of online RSVP’s is appauling.

    If I were to receive an email thank you, I would assume that the couple wrote one email template and just filled in the blanks. What about getting recycled note-cards? They don’t need to be fancy.

    We’re having a photo-booth as well and we’ll be uploading all of the pictures taken in it to our wedding website so that our guests can pull them off of there. You already mentioned that you have a wedding website, so why not do something like that?
