We got married a bit over a month ago and are planning to do photo thank you cards. We have seen our pro pics, but do not have access to the files yet (sigh…)
I feel like we’re not going to have out thank you notes in hand for at least another week, and we won’t be finished writing them until into December.
Can I count these as Holiday cards too? By just tacking a sentence on the end saying “We hope you have a wonderful holiday season!”?
I just don’t see us getting Chrsitmas cards out any other way. (Shame… because I bought a ton after Chrsitmas last year!!)

I have a friend who did this for her wedding s couple of years ago. I didn’t connect that it was a thank you card, I just thought it was an Xmas card with their wedding pictures.

I think that’s fine as long as the thank you is still clear!

The thank you cards need to be separate from christmas wishes cards.

We’re just going to send out TY’s now… and when we get th pics we’re going to include them with Christmas cards (along with an additional pic we’re going to take with our pooches in santa gear )

@September29: You can do what you want. I personally don’t see a problem with it. I doubt that anyone would really make a big deal over it. I just think it’s silly, its a card personally from you either way. Its the thought that counts. I don’t know why people get so worked up over these kinds of things. lol. 🙂 I say just combine the two.

You could try, but I feel like one would get lost in the other. I think most people are going to either think it’s a thank you note or a Christmas card – but not both.

I wouldn’t do it for the reason that the meaning of one would be lost in the other. And you say you already have Christmas cards, so do them separately 🙂

In my mind, a thank-you card is expected, and a Christmas card is just nice because not everyone sends Christmas cards. So if you’re going to combine, I’d make sure the “thank you” part of it was very clear. 🙂

@Gemstone: +1 Exactly.
A Christmas card is just well wishes in the holiday season. As long as you make the focus on the thank you part and it’s clear that’s what it is, I think it’s fine to add holiday greetings at the end. After all, there is no requirement to send Christmas cards, and it’s a nice thing to say.
Just remember that in good etiquette, Christmas cards aren’t send until after Thanksgiving. So you might want to consider that.

I do not think it’s okay to combine the two. THey serve two very different purposes, as Gemstone pointed out.

You don’t need to do Christmas cards. This would be a thank you with a note about hoping they have a good holiday season. Which is totally fine. But the main point needs to be the thank you (which it sounds like it would be).

If you do, I’d just keep it to “Warm wishes for a joyous holiday season” at the end of the thank you – no holiday-related things on the front of the card.

I think you get a pass on the holiday cards this year. 🙂 Save them til 2013!

Make sure that the card is mainly focused on the thank you with only a brief mention of the holidays. Holiday cards aren’t mandatory anyway, so that part of it is less important than the thank you.
