I would send generic cards now & send your “special” thank yous for attending the wedding later. I know you don’t want to write cards twice, but I think that’s the most appropriate (or JUST sending the generic one if you’re really opposed to writing 2).

@RoundSolitaire:  If it’s just a handful guests, is writing/sending an extra card really that big of an issue?  Your wedding isn’t all THAT far away, so you could likely get away with just one after, but I’d make sure you at least aknowledge the gift somehow now, email, text, phone call or message through a family member or something!

If you are willing to send out a few, just use a generic thank-you, write a little something like “just a quick note to thank you for your gift!  Really looking forward to seeing/celebrating with you at our wedding”

Then when you get the official thank-yous, send one of them out too, with the pic.  I am sure they would appreciate the effort you put in!

Etiquette doesn’t care for photo thank yous.  Only that you thank your guests promptly.  I wouldn’t hold off on thanking your guests so that you can send them a photo of you.  If you want to send a photo of yourself after the wedding go to town.  But still thank your guests promptly.

@RoundSolitaire:  Sounds like the best thing!  Especially if the gift/gitfs come from an older generation.  They can sometimes worry if they don’t hear right away, or form the wrong idea if you are not prompt.  My nana used to be a real hard nose about that kind of thing lol.
