our wedding thank you cards.

The general consensus on the internet seems to be that you should send thank you notes no later than three months after the wedding, so I'm gonna say that sharing them on your blog by seven months after is okay? (Don't worry; I met the three month deadline for mailing them!)

Wedding Thank You Cards

Unlike our Save the Dates and invitations—which weren't really necessary because we only had 10 guests including the wedding party—I knew we would need thank you cards. Tony and I are lucky to have a lot of caring, generous people in our lives, so not only did we need thank you cards, we needed more than 10.

Pro tip: Writing thank you notes is a lot more pleasant with a beer. (Until you spill the beer everywhere and end up arguing with your husband. Fortunately the thank you cards were unharmed ;)

Ordering these was probably easier than our other wedding stationery because we already knew what we wanted—simple cards with focus on the photo and/or words, and plain white envelopes. 

Luckily, our photographer was amazing and not only did she take breathtaking photos, but she got them to us in record speed. It was so much fun uploading the photos to my Wedding Paper Divas account and personalizing different options.

In the end, there were two options that both Tony and I lovedFavorite Photo and Loving Thanks.* It was a tough decision! The only reason we ended up going with the first option is because we decided we wanted a folded card.

I deleted the text on the inside of the card so that there would be more space for a handwritten note. (I love that you're able to personalize so many details!)

And just like our Save the Dates and invitations, I used Sharpie pens to address them and washi tape from A Beautiful Mess to give the envelopes a pop of colour.

I loved the result!

*Oh man, I still love these two options. The text! The colours! The photos!

Both of these are Loving Thanks.

P.S. I loved the photo on our thank you cards so much, I ordered it on a Christmas ornament from Tiny Prints.
