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.

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).
