    If there isn’t a picture you love, then don’t bother waiting.

    We sent out thank you cards without a picture, and then we’re sending out a wedding photo with Christmas Cards.

    I vote wait. Two months is totally reasonable. Get them all written up now so all you have to do is pop in a picture when they arrive.

    I like photo thank-you’s, it’s nice to have a picture of the couple if I didn’t get the opportunity to snap one myself.  However, I didn’t do them for my own wedding because I just wanted to get mine done with!

    You should never delay thanking someone so that you can send them a photo of yourself.

    It is a little self centred to think that people would rather not be promptly thanked, so they can get a picture of me.

    Send them now.  If you want to send out pictures later then do so in a seperate mailing, or christmas card.

    I got married in July and just sent out my thank-you cards this week, I wanted to include a picture, especially because we had several guests who sent a gift, but couldn’t attend. 

    I’d wait and send the photo.

    I say without a picture. I would bet that at least 80% would throw out the photo anyway (not because they don’t like you, just because they’d have no use for it).

    @andielovesj:  I agree with this. 

    I would send the thank-yous now, no picture.

    Send with the Picture. Your guests are going to want a little sneak peek into the wedding photos they may or may not get to see. Waiting to send a thank you card does not mean you don’t care about thanking them. It’s proper wedding etiquette to send them out at least 2 to 3 months afterwards. Everyone knows you are busy being a newlywed!

    I really don’t understand sending a photo of yourself to someone unless they are extremely close and would put it on display.
