It’s a lot but some people are a lot. It makes them happy. And you won’t forget what they look like. Silver linings all around..

Ugh! I just electronically received a “Happy First Valentine’s Day as a married couple” card from someone married in the Fall. The picture is a loved up wedding photo. This adds to the list of engagement pics, save the dates, wedding blog pics, Facebook cover and profile pics, etc. I often feel it’s a look at me because I look so good situation…it makes me feel empty.

I’m also guilty of tagging people in our wedding album on fb, but I think more excessive cat/dog photos upset people more lol.

catlover13 :  has just given me a FANTASTIC IDEA! Start sending her back cards, but with cute cat (or dog) photos on it instead. There would be SO many available to you on the internet and you could even do it anonymously 😀 DO IT!

jmasp :  oh wow, talk about excessive! 

We sent out zero photos of ourselves; post-wedding we sent guests pictures of THEM, but not of us lol. 

And yeah, agree with PPs that this will not end here… I’m pretty sure you can look forward to ultrasound pics, maybe even maternity ones, and then when the bay comes along, good luck! Lol

Lol excessive much? This would annoy me to no end and I’m only 27. I feel like my generation needs to share more than others. 

My sister got married four or five years ago and she still regularly posts all her wedding pics on Facebook to the point that I unfollowed her because I feel like I’ve seen them a million times over. Like we get it, he finally married you lmao. 

Unfortunately you can’t escape your mail.

As long as it’s not a bill, I don’t care WHAT I get in the mail! Bring on the postcards, worst I can do is trash them or use them to write my grocery list on.

This is one of the reasons I HATE when people wait for wedding photos to send thank you cards. Literally 4 people care about getting another photo of you, just send the damn thank you card already!

Okay yes, the dedicated photo shoots for each thing – totally over the top. Unless their like sibling is a photographer or something and it just sorta happens. 

But honestly, the rest of it doesn’t seem so crazy really. Christmas cards, a thank you note (I applaud this – they actually sent one!), and invitations? Okay? what’s the big deal? The announcements might be a tad over the top, but from my time on this board, I’ve learned they might have TTC or waiting friends and have understood that it may best to be informed by mail rather than Facebook or in person.

1. I hate photo postcards that are mass produced with no personal note or even a signature for holidays like Christmas. It seems to defeat the purpose to me (wishing those you care about a happy holiday). However, the first few of those seems pretty normal to include wedding photos in.

2. Am I the only person who didn’t use wedding photos for any cards? STDs, invitations, thank you’s – none of these were photos. (Granted, I did send specific photos to individuals if I thought they would want them/like them – photos of them dancing at the wedding or with a group of friends…)
