My husband and I got married in March of this year. We want to send out our first holiday card as a married couple this coming holiday season. I was just wondering if it’s too late to include a wedding photo on our card? Since our wedding was closer to the beginning of the year, I don’t want people to think “Enough already…We know you got married!” Would it be better to just take a new photo and use that instead?

Yeah, I’d think it was overkill to use a wedding photo as an xmas card. But also I’ve never understood using a picture of yourself as a holiday card in general. So you take a cute picture of yourselves and send it to your family and friends so they have to hang you guys on their wall or put you up on their mantel to stare at and admire for two months? Eh, nah, not for me but I do have family members who do that shit every year.
Fair play but its not something I’d ever actually bring myself to do. I’m not really a picture person anyway so thats likely why.

Mmmmm…that’s a toughie!
I personally wouldn’t, but if I recieved a holiday card with a wedding photo from the spring, I wouldn’t think it were out of place.

We got married in August and will be taking new photos.
The only time I got a wedding photo Christmas card and didn’t think “enough already,” it came from a couple married in November.
March is too long in my opinion.

I don’t see anything wrong with it. Especially if (like us) you didn’t share your wedding photos on Facebook. Most of our family and friends haven’t seen any of our wedding photos, so they would actually quite like a Christmas card with a wedding photo on it. We got married in June.

Thanks guys. Y’all just confirmed what I was thinking. We just have so many awesome engagement photos/wedding photos that we paid a lot of money for. So I was kind of grasping at straws and hoping I could find a way to use them. But looks like we will just have to take a new picture to use. I love receiving Christmas/Holiday cards and I’m excited to actually send out our first one this year!

I’ll be honest – if I was the recipient, my first thought would be “enough already, I know you got married”

If you’re doing a collage of pictures from the year, I’d definitely use a wedding picture as one of them. If you’re just using one picture I feel like it kind of depends. Did you do a photo thank you card? If so- yeah, I’d skip the wedding picture on the holiday card. That would make me feel like “We get it already”. Same goes for it you’ve already posted wedding pictures on Facebook. If everyone hasn’t already seen wedding pictures from you in one way or another, you could probably get away with it.

I think it depends on how big your wedding was, how much you shared photos previously (social media or otherwise) and how many people you’re sending the holiday cards too. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with sharing your wedding photo. People use Christmas cards as a way to wrap-up the year and provide an update to friends and family…. getting married is a big thing to recap so I personally think it makes sense. But I think it makes slightly more sense if everyone on your mailing list hasn’t already seen the pictures a ton of times. Older relatives especially would enjoy a wedding picture, I think!
