i know i promised a recap soon and i will definitely get to it this weekend for sure!!
but i wanted to get your opinion on thank yous ‘cuz i dont want to wait for our professional photos to get back before sending them, otherwise i’ll forget!! lol
so….what do you think…
photo postcard…..just the photo on one side, handwritten thank you on the other with their address and stamp….my thought is that with just the photo on the one side, they could frame the photo if they wanted too….but i run the risk of it getting damaged in the mail….
small framed photo …..my thinking is that i would have a photo of us on the left and a handwritten thank you on the right and frame it in something small like a 5X7….then hand deliver it since most of the guests who came live close buy….then what i would’ve paid for postage on all the cards, i’d spend on the postage for sending out the frames to ppl who live far…..
traditional thank you card with handwritten note and separate photo insert…..simple, traditional, stuff in envelope, stamp and mail off….
what do yous think??

we sort of did a combo… we used a paper photo frame w/ a photo slipped inside, and put it in an envelope with a small folded thank you note. The photo frames were 5×7 and fit a 4×6 photo, and I had to order a 5.5×7.5 envelope to put them in. The paper frame, photo, and folded card only required standard postage. They really turned out great.
ETA: we actually used a large group picture of all of our guests gathered in front of the ranch where we wed, it was a great shot.

I think either idea 1 or idea 3. To be honest, if someone whose wedding I went to sent me a framed photo of themselves I would remove the photo of the bride and groom and use the frame for myself. I dont even know if I would display the photo afterwards. If I got a postcard thank you, I would pop it on the fridge.

@PitBulLover: it wouldn’t just be a photo of us though….it would be a photo and the handwritten note…. sorta like this but on a much smaller scale…
@simplifiedbride: thats a really cute idea!!! i might put that on my list of options…lol

I also like Simlpifiedbride’s idea. I think you’re going down the right path though, good thoughts!

I could see doing the framed photo for family but definitely not for general guests. Even with your example (letter and framed photo) – that just isn’t something I would expect too many people to display in their home. I think the postcard with a photo on one side is sufficient – but even after awhile, those will more than likley get thrown away (with the exception of family…but you will probably provide them with the option to buy photos or give them as gifts).
