Should you send wedding thank you cards with photo inside, or can you skip it?
This is the latest question from bride-to-be, Sarah, who wants to know the answer. She recently tied the knot and she’s working on her thank you cards but she’s stuck on the design. She writes,
“Dear Emmaline Bride, should wedding thank you cards have a photo on the front? I want to include a picture but I’m not sure what a wedding thank you card should look like. Please help!”
Great question, Sarah! In regards to what a wedding thank you card should look like, there’s no right or wrong way to do it. Sending thank you cards, in general, is all you need to do! But if you want to send wedding thank you cards with photo or photos from your celebration, we think it’s a lovely idea.
Think about it: a thank you card by itself is nice. But a thank you card with a wedding photo? That’s 100x better! Guests are excited to see your wedding day photos, so having one delivered to their door in the form of a thank you card is a pretty brilliant idea, if you ask me.
The best thing about a wedding thank you card with photo is the ability to finally use one of your favorite snapshots from your wedding day. You know you secretly want to keep posting images from your wedding on social media, and now you have another excuse to pick out yet another favorite photo to send your guests. :)

… etc. Choose a photo you love and go with it! You can’t go wrong. :)
