I’ve received at postcard Thank You from a wedding. I actually plan on using postcards. There should be plently of room to write on…as long as you aren’t planning on writing some in depth/book like response. It helps save on postage too!

I personally would not do this. Postage where I am is no different for a letter/card or post card.  To me, a great thank you note is personal and specific. There is something about a postcard that strikes me as very casual.  I don’t mind being casual about a lot of things when it comes to my wedding, but not when it comes to my gratitude.

@PrincessPerry:  As long as there is enough room to write a message on there…sure, why not? At least you will be sending out thank you notes 🙂

@PrincessPerry:  this is what I’m doing too, and in my book the shorter space to write is a good thing!  How much is there to say, really?

I’ve received these from other weddings and loved them.  They’re really cute with a personalized wedding photo.  Unless your wedding is very formal, it’s a great idea.

I would LOVE a post card if it were mailed out from the destination of your honeymoon. Or maybe even if it were just graphically from the destination of your honeymoon. Otherwise, meeeeh. Just looks like the couple is being frugal with postage. Which is fine.

Honestly – no one cares how “cute” the thank you is. The message is more important!

Most of our thank you notes have been postcards, actually. My mom recently asked if we were going to do that too, because she thinks they’re cute. I had originally thought about printing folding note cards with our picture, but we might go with postcards. I personally always thought they were a little unusual, but I think they’re pretty standard now.

I actually framed the thank you postcards from two of FI’s cousins’ weddings because they ended up being the only pro pictures we have from the weddings.
