I have some left over thank you cards from the wedding and they’re high quality paper and was thinking of putting a picture on top and sending them to our family. I’m not a photo person so all we have are pictures of our engagement and wedding. Only one of our engagement pics are usable, but I’m not a huge fan of it. I love a ton of our wedding photos, but would it be weird for me to put one on the card 6 months after our wedding? We haven’t given most of our family a wedding photo so I thought it would be great for them. Any advice?

I think that’s a great idea to use up your remaining cards and pass on a photo of you and your husband to your families. Go for it!

I have seen this done many times! A holiday card is a way to wrap up the year and begin a new one with well wishes, and your wedding happened in 2010! Many people include letters detailing what they have been up to over the year, so a picture of the biggest event of your year is definitely appropriate and no different. I say go for it! 🙂

It’s not uncommon at all to put a wedding photo on a holiday card months after the wedding. Typically, holiday cards are a miniature form of once-a-year communication, and provide a snapshot of the place you’re at in your life and what momentous things have happened to you over the last year. Some people write full-blown letters describing the major points of their family members’ lives over the past year, but you can convey the same sense of “here’s where we are now that we weren’t at this time last year” with a simple photo. Such as, your wedding photo! Or, the two of you in your new home, if you got a new house in that year. Or, you with your newly-acquired puppy, or newly-acquired baby, etc.
I just designed our Christmas card today, and you better believe it has one of our wedding photos on it. Most people haven’t seen our pro photos, and I’m betting most of your card recipients haven’t seen yours, so it’ll be nice for them to get to see a portrait of the two of you on your wedding day.
