The wedding is over and it’s time to write the thank you notes.. or not. When we made our contract with our photographer, it included 80 Thank You Photo cards. It was optional and we didn’t pay extra for it, and at the time I thought it would be cool. In retrospect, I really wish we could have asked to swap it with something else. Our photo proofs are expected to arrive 6 weeks after the wedding which means I have another 4 weeks or so before we get them. Then we have to choose the proofs we like. Who knows how much longer that will take? I’m the kind of person that wants to immediately send a thank you note as soon as I get a gift, and this waiting stinks.
For some reason, I forgot that I make cards (DIY overload perhaps?)! I could have made the cards, printed our own non-pro photo to include and have it sent already. I guess it’s because I didn’t expect to get really great non-pro shots, but fortunately, we did get a few nice shots. My favorite so far was posted in “The Key to Love“.
Luckily, most people gave us cash gifts. For those that mailed us a gift from our registry, I immediately sent an email to tell them that I received it and that a formal Thank you note was on the way. This way, they at least know that we received it. Sigh, anyone else opted to have Photo Thank You cards made?
While we wait, thought I’d show you the cards I made to thank our friends and family for engagement/housewarming gifts and other miscellaneous things.
