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.
