    i think they are really cute and i would totally hang it on my fridge for a while – if you and i were close i would even put it in a frame – i like having pictures in my house of the people who mean most to me.

    I love pictures so I would love it. I think it’s better to include it and I have people not want it than the other way around.

    I’m always disappointed when I get a thank you without a picture.

    @LGenz: Oh really?  That is interesting. I was planning on getting my TYs done ASAP, but it will be a few weeks before the pro pics come back.  I wouldn’t want people to feel cheated out of a picture, but I also don’t want them to think I’m ungrateful/lazy about sending the notes. Hmm…

    But I agree with everyone else; I like getting a picture in the card.

    Personally I hate getting pictures in the thank yous. If it was close personal friends I already took pictures at the couple’s wedding. Why would I need another picture of them from their wedding?

    I think it depends on my relationship with the newlyweds.  

    However, if you have pics of your guests at your wedding, you might want to include those in your thank you notes instead (we did and they loved those!).

    To put a spin on this, I made prints of all the pictures of GUESTS taken at our wedding, and included their picture with their thank you. Our photog got a lot of couples slow dancing, and a bunch of posed extended family, etc. so I included the ones that corresponded with people.

    I think it’s much better for them to have one of themselves from the day, than necessarily you two.

    If you’re a close friend and there is a picture with the card, I’ll keep it on the fridge.  If no picture, I’ll throw it away.

    If you’re not that close, I’ll probably throw it away either way.

    I think I would send pictures to close family who I know want it- but not to my FI’s Mom’s neighbor.  Maybe it’s wrong to pick and choose, and in any case a 4×6 is 19 cents at costco so maybe it’s worth it just to carpet bomb pictures on all your guests =)

    I think you’re guests will really appreciate those photos even moreso than a pic of the two of you (even though we brides just love sharing pics of ourselves on our wedding day)!  Wink

    I think it’s a good idea to put pics on. In a sense, it makes it more personal and at the same time they get a pic of the wedding for keep-sake. Don’t think it’s vain at all.

    I like the idea of melisslp above – if you have pics with the guests on, it will be lovely to put that on.

    We made a thank you card with one of our professional pictures just so people had a nice picture of us. In the thank you card we also included a pic of the couple and a pic of us with the couple (we took pictures of every couple and with every couple)
