After all the hard work of planning a wedding and then the hustle and bustle of the big day itself has died down, there is still one big task to accomplish.
Thank you cards.
When faced with expressing your gratitude to the friends and family who joined you and supported you on your very special day you may be left with lack of words. A photo card gives you more options for making a card unique. Here are some ideas for photos to use in your thank you card.
Make a plan with your wedding photographer to get a shot on your wedding day of the two of you holding a Thank You sign. It can even be handmade in your own writing – it still gets the message across.
Take a moment during your honeymoon to take a picture for your Thank You cards. Something as simple as your handprints and wedding bands in the sand make a charming card photo.
Getting married is a big news but moving to a new address after the wedding is big too! Share your new address with everyone in your thank you card and feature a photo of you in front of your new abode.
Photo thank you cards help you express how you feel beyond words. These creative ideas will help you design a card that will make the recipients want to hold onto it. And photo cards aren’t hard to create. You can even use a photo you snapped with your phone when you were on your honeymoon. With the My Kodak Moments app, you can make prints, collages and these Thank You cards right on your phone.
The app can be downloaded for iOS or Android here.
