We have received several personalized thank-you postcards, and I’ve always loved getting them. I think they’re perfectly fine!

I don’t think they are tacky, as long as there is a personalized note (like you said you were planning on.) I think it can be a bit awkward to have the note on the outside for anyone to read, but honestly, I don’t think postal workers care or even read the postcards. 

You could always do a flat card in an envelope like many save the dates.

Perfectly fine! I’d be happy with a note on pretty note paper too! It’s the thank you that matters IMO

We did this and it came out fabulous and our guests loved it!!!! We put a formal wedding picture on the front, wrote a personal note on the back of each one and mailed them in envelopes. Our guests loved them because they can be framed and several of our guests did just that. I say go for it!!!

 We used Vistaprint…cheap and easy! Good luck

As long as you write a personalized note, then I love the idea!  I’ve gotten some generic ones… Don’t love that – but, I think postcards are super cute as long as it’s heartfelt 🙂

Not tacky at all. Perfectly acceptable!

Maybe if you have family that is old-fashioned send them a “normal” card (such as the elderly) but the rest could get the postcatd, it’s also “green” because of less paper!
