My husband and I were married this past September. We sent out thank you cards within 3 weeks of the wedding to those that we received gifts/cards from. I had planned to send out Thank You’d using photos from the wedding as well, but we still haven’t received our photos back (sneak peek in November…. nothing I wanted to use). I am now debating on whether it is too late to send anything out? Assuming that we have the pictures back within the next month it would probably be April before I could get them out….
So, my question is do you think it would be weird to receive a second thank you with a photo? That much later (7months)? I don’t want to waste money on something that people will just throw out. But I would still like to thank those who came but didn’t send a gift etc plus send something out with some pictures.

I think if you’ve already thanked people for their gifts you’re off the hook. I know if I received a 2nd thank you card from someone I would mostly be confused, and it seems like an unnecessary expense. I think maybe if there are specific family members (parents, grandparents, etc) who would want a wedding picture then absolutely go ahead and send them one, but not every guest. I’d rather spend my money (and would rather that the couple spend their money) on a printed picture and frame for a handful of close family members than on a second round of cards (that are likely to end up in the trash) for every guest.

I agree with the PP. I’d be confused if I got a second thank you card. As far as the guests who came but didn’t gift anything, the reception was their “thank you”. Also, most people don’t care about getting a picture of you and your husband so I don’t think it will be missed. If they wanted a picture, they would ask for one.

@Lauren_447: Honestly, it’s probably a waste of money. I save thank you cards for a month or so and then toss them… I would just get pictures to immediate family when they become available and send thank you’s out as soon as possible. As a guest, I do not care about a photo thank you card. I care about getting a thank you card.

@Lauren_447: Would the photo(s) be of just the 2 of you, or of the people you’re sending them to? I’m sorry to say this, but whenever I receive a thank you with a picture of the couple I just end up throwing both away.
