So I am particularly diligent when it comes to giving thanks where thanks is due, in particular if we go to someone’s house for a lovely dinner—thank you card; when we attend a wedding that is amazing—thank you card; and when we received the insanely generous gifts both before and at our engagement party—thank you card.
Originally we were quite partial to the non-photograph thank you cards: just a simple pattern or image on the front and straight to the point inside. However, we then received a thank you card with a wedding photo in the mail from a wedding we were unable to attend, and it was beautiful! We popped that wedding photo straight on our fridge. Luckily that was before we negotiated our photography package!
Now, included with our photography package (thanks to some hard bargaining on our part) are thank you cards to send to our guests after the wedding.
So, with that part decided, now what to do with the photo? There are so many creative brides out there who inspire me to do something amazing! I absolutely LOVE this…but it somewhat defeats the purpose of having a wedding photo on there, as you can’t actually see the bride and groom’s faces.
Next stop, plain “thank you” signs with a cute pose:

Then what happens if we don’t look quite as awesome in our “thank you” picture as we do in another photo? I think picking our favourite photo of the day will have to do for us! Despite how tempting it is to find a cute “thank you” sign!
