    Did you do an engagement session?

    You know they run specials for xmas card photos at Lifetouch stores (EG Target and JcPenny portrait studios.).

    As a recipent I’d want something besides a wedding photo if I got one already.

    I personally would find it odd and out of place. I don’t think wedding photos should ne used for Xmas cards. Sure, people send photos of themselves on cards during the holiday, but the photos are usually in a holiday setting. Just my take.

    A blogger from Southern Weddings posted about this and I think its very cute.  As long as its strictly Christmas, not a thank-you lumped together with Christmas, I don’t see the problem.

    We did that for ourt Christmas cards last year but we had two pictures, one of us from the wedding, and another that was not wedding related with our dog. Everyone we talked to said they loved it but maybe they were just being polite 🙂

    I considered doing this, but ultimately decided not too. I have my wedding photos on facebook, so I’m pretty sure everyone who would get a Christmas card has seen them already. I feel like they want to see something new, so I’m using a different photo.

    I used a picture from our E-Pics for our Christmas cards last year, and those were taken in the summer, so I don’t see a problem with it.  That said, I live in Texas and it never looks “wintery” around here, so unless I took a picture of us infront of our Christmas tree, it would never look like a genuine christmas photo.

    I say go for it! 🙂

    I put a wedding photo on our Xmas cards this year.  The photo was from inside the church, so it wasn’t summer-y in nature.  Although, I didn’t send photo thank yous and haven’t posted my pictures on Facebook yet.  So for many, this will be the first time seeing our wedding photo.

    The way I think about it is that I spent a crap-load of money on my wedding photographery and I’m going to make as much use out of my photos as possible 🙂

    Since I know how much wedding photography costs- I wouldn’t have a problem with it at all.  You look your best and at least in my case I have about 900 usable pictutes that I want to share.

    How could you not like seeing two people in love…I say go for it!

    A good picture is a good picture and I see no issue sending aChristmas card with a wedding pic. To me this is one of those things that if someone gets their panties in a wad because of it, that is their issue not mine.

    I voted not to use a wedding photo. Christmas is not a celebration of your wedding. I’m going to use the word we all love to hate, I think the idea is super tacky!

    @nickels:  Most people send family photos etc when Christmas isn’t in fact about their kids or dog either.  Do you see that as tacky?  Throwing down the tacky gauntlet seems lke a way to take this conversation from 0 to 60 for no good reason. 

    We are not religious at all. Our Christmas is a time to gather with family and reach out to our loved ones and let them know we are thinking of them. It is also a time to catch up.  What bigger thing is there to catch up on this year than our wedding?

    I think it’s a great idea!  You have a bunch of beautiful photos, and it’s probably the biggest event of your last year… so why not?!  I think the etiquette people are going a little overboard on this one.
