I have finally received all my wedding photos!! YAY!
So now to thank you’s. I am doing these on shutterfly. I lvoe the options on here!
Well im looking at the thank you collage, and they are nice but personally I wouldnt find a use for them. I have received so many of these and they end up in a drawer or a picture box. The couple that i have recieved that were a regular photo with a message on the back, i actually framed and kept in my house. But that is me…
What did you do for thank you’s?
And if you received a regular print with thank you message on back, would you think thats nice and suffice?

I plan on having a pic taken with some Thank You signs, and as long as the picture turns out – I think we’ll just do a photo postcard from it and then can write on the back. At least, that’s my thought for now and have seen a lot of people use.

Nikkimcq: We used regular stationery, as waiting for pictures often delays the sending and receipt of thank-you notes.
I think the key thing is that the thank you notes be timely and personal, so if I received a pic with note on the back (? a postcard) I would be just fine with that.

Nikkimcq: I think that as long as the thank-you note is personalized and handwritten that most people are fine with the note being accompanied by a photograph.

MarriedToMyWork: julies1949: Kacie209: Thanks all!! I really want to be practical, and think a photo would be practical! Maybe what i could do instead is send a couple photo’s, maybe one with the wedding party and one of us two, with a little note!

I sometimes send a gift as soon as I receive the wedding invitation. I would rather get a timely thank you, so that I know that the gift arrived safely.
You can get inexpensive holiday photocards printed at Walmart, Wahlgreen’s, etc., and send them to your guests later.

I would likely throw the picture into a box and forget about it so I don’t think a picture is even necessary. Timeliness and the personal hand written message means more to me than a thank you that arrives months later with a picture on it.
I made our thank you notes and aimed to have them to guests within a month of our wedding.
PS I saw your update about sending a picture of the wedding party as well, I definitely think that would be a waste of money. I really have no use for a photo that has a bunch of people that I don’t really know (outside of the couple obviously).
