We are Jewish and Chanukah is 3 weeks away, there def isn’t time to send Chanukah cards. We don’t feel comfortable sending “Happy Holidays” cards sooo we have chosen to send ‘Happy New Years” cards.
We got married 11 days ago on 10.31. and I don’t think we’ll have our pro photos back any time in the next 2-3 weeks. We have received a mini preview of whats in store (I shared here) for us. In that preview there is a series of 5 pix from our first look. I am thinking of asking our photog for 4 of those shots and I’ll use those to create the Happy New Years card.
My question is – When do I send them? Early or mid December? I am so clueless…Or do you think our idea of sending “Happy New Years” cards is a bust!?!?!?

I think New Year’s Cards are a great idea since you can’t get them done before Chanukah. I usually receive a few Happy New Year cards, and they always seem to come around the same time as holiday cards. I’d probably send them on/around/after December 15th. If you need postage, the holiday forever stamps are beautiful. They’re acorns, and pine sprigs, very classy and simple. Good luck!

@simplifiedbride: Thank you! Thats what I have in my head too, mid December

I totally agree – mid-December. That’s a good time in order for people to receive them and get them (in case they leave town for the holidays etc). I’m sure that people would love to see your recent pics!

We’ll be sending Christmas cards probably a week into December, I think New Year’s cards would be great to get in the mail between like December 15-22 ish. I would say send them later so they get there between Christmas and New Year’s, but USPS is so overloaded around the holidays that they could take a while. And I’m sure your photographers won’t mind getting you a few photos in advance for you to use on the cards, that will be great.
