Our wedding was June 26, and a couple weeks ago people had already started asking my husband’s mother “whether or not we got their card” (read: “are those a-holes sending thank you notes or what?).
I thought this was excessive and kind of rude, but it is an indication that people might be wondering…

No one cares what kind of card the thank you notes are on. Just send them, send pics later.

I agree with the posters who say to just send them. As much as I’d like to say that I save every thank you note I get, I don’t. I toss them in the garbage after about a week. I just don’t see the need to keep them…and I have a feeling there are a lot of people out there like me. So just send them.

A week isn’t a big deal. And having them be pictures will help ‘excuse’ the delay.
But yeah, thank you notes are not about you, thank you notes are about them. (The generic “you” and “them”). And its not “them” that cares what the cards look like. Doesn’t matter if it has pictures on it or not.

Can you go ahead and write thank you notes on the cards you already purchased and when you get the photos back just include a photo reprint inside? That way you get a start on writing the thank you’s and they’re ready to be mailed as soon as you get prints made.

I am in the same boat kinda, i got married at the end of may and have even written out our thank you cards. Prob is I don’t have any of my original addresses i used to send out the invites. I have given thank you cards to fam. members I have seen since the wedding but still have to send them to everyone else.
