I had a lot of fun with our thank you cards. I was inspired by a friend who had sent thank you photo cards after her wedding that displayed a photo collage of her wedding photos. I loved the idea so much that I knew I wanted to do the same thing for our wedding thank yous.
As soon as I received the photo files from our photographer, I immediately hopped on Zazzle (I’m not associated with the site at all, just love their stuff) and got to work selecting a template and filling in the photos.
I ended up going with the “Sweet Memories Wedding Thank You Photo Cards” template. The photo cards came with free envelopes and I got free shipping thanks to my Zazzle Black membership (totally worth it if you order multiple things on Zazzle like I do, it paid for itself after two wedding-related orders). The cards arrived two weeks later and we both loved them. It was actually the first time we’d seen our wedding photos printed and not just on a computer screen.
The photo cards were printed on a heavy card stock, so we were able to leave personal notes on the back for our friends and family with a regular ink pen.
Also, if the guest took a photo at the photo booth during the reception, we included the a copy of the photo with the card.
It took us longer than I care to admit to finish the thank you cards. We wrote personalized messages on all of them and gave ourselves a goal of doing 5-10 per night so we weren’t overloaded. So far we’ve received positive feedback on the cards, which makes me happy.
What did you do for you thank you cards?
I almost wrote that this was my last wedding related project, but that’s far from the truth. I still need to work on wedding photo books, having some photos framed, making a mini book out of our wedding cards, etc. I’m pretty sure I’ll be working on wedding related projects right up until our one year anniversary. Sigh. At least it’s still fun.
