Hi, I have this really great shot of us on our wedding day that I want to use on our thankyou cards…but I’m not sure if this is a good idea or not. I know most people, family and several female friends would like getting that. But there are some single male friends, and some of my husbands male work friends that probably won’t really care about it at all. So what I was thinking of doing was making 2. One with the photo and one without it and sending the photo card to the people I know would appreciate it. And on the other just use the ‘wedding logo’ or whatever you would call it that I used on invites and stuff.
Also I am going to write individual thankyou messages on each card. I have read post about this before, people not liking that they got a photo and just the word thankyou printed. I will write out a message for everyone but I am in two minds about using the photo. I think it will look nice. But I don’t want it to seem too narcissistic or anything.

I received a thank you note that had a smaller picture on the back side of the card with a caption that read “the happy couple.” I thought this was really sweet and also a nice balance of being there for people to see, but not being too in your face.

We sent photo cards to everyone, I think it’s just easier to only send one card. I personally like getting cards with photos. (Though, of course, I’m a woman, so your single male friends might feel differently. On the other hand single male friends might be less likely to have strong opinions about weddings or thank yous anyway.) I think that you won’t comitt any serious faux pas either way, as long as you send cards with personal notes like you plan on.

easier with 1 card and I’m sure you paid A LOT of money for those pics….might as well use them!

I LOVE the wedding thank you cards with the wedding photo on it! We bought our thank you cards already (we started getting gifts!) and we bought like this big 50 pack because that’s what they had at Target…. Otherwise I’d be sending everyone picture cards!

Ok, yay! It looks like most of you like the idea of picture cards. Which is good because I really did want to do them 🙂

We did Thank You cards with pics and they were very nice. I liked them especially for those who sent gifts but didn’t attend our wedding.
