    I think it’s cute! Do it!

    We would’ve done that but I know that some of my cards will be too lengthy for the postcard space so we went with a folded card =)

    I didn’t vote because ‘No way! not polite at all’ seemed a little to harsh.  I’m sure they can be done very cute, but I personally wouldn’t do them.  They give off a less formal impression of the thank you.  I feel like people are doing so much to come to our wedding and give us gifts, that the least I can do is sit down and write them out a more formal thank you.  But that’s just my opinion…..

    It’s pretty trendy. 14 weddings this year (planned or attended) and more than half sent a thank you postcard.

    I think that as long as you’re actually hand writing the thank you note, it’s fine. And it will save on postage!

    I’d love to receive one, but I think I’m a little too traditional to send them out myself.

    I’m thinking about going this route (with a photo of us from the wedding holding a sign that says thank-you from etsy) however, my family and guests are very informal!  My RSVPs were online, and I had tri-fold wedding invitations that listed all the events of our wedding weekend (all the guests were invited to a day of wine tasting, evening rehersal dinner, and a day after brunch) so I’m not the best bee to provide etiquette advice! 🙂

    Though, if you are only worried about your FILs why not just put theirs in an envelope?

    I would feel uncomfortable not using an envelope and letting other people see what someone got me.  My mom worries about mail and what other people can see (like if you can see a cheque through an envelope someone might steal it, don’t send postcards until you’re back home because if someone sees you’re away they might break in), and some of that has rubbed off on me.

    I just sent mine out last week! I loved the post card thank you cards and I have heard back from several people that they loved them. We took certain pics just for the post card and had to wait to get our pro pics to be able to to them but I loved the way they turned out. I think it is way more personal to put the time and thought into the pic and everything and then write a personal note on the back vs a blank thank you folded card IMO. Plus they get a pic from the wedding even if they couldn’t make it 🙂 Here is ours….

    I received a cute post card like that and didn’t think anything of it.  I actually prefer getting a picture than a generic thank you note (as long as there’s a note inside).  That said:  I just sent a generic note instead of including a picture.  🙂

    I would be afraid to do it, because I wouldn’t want to risk having my thank-you seem insincere or informal. I’d want to make sure that all my guests, including my traditional family, felt properly thanked. Of course, someone could be very sincere in a postcard and completely flippant in a traditional card with an envelope, but I’m talking about people’s perceptions…
