We were so inspired by this beautiful photo from Pinterest that we had to put together a post for you! The couple looks stunning and we’re loving their clever use of Scrabble letters to spell out “thank you” in this dreamy picture.
We LOVE the idea of planning a special photo on your wedding day that you can use later for your thank you notes. What a fun way to add your own personal style to your cards. With this idea, the bride and groom can be sure that they’ll be able to get their personalities across so that when their family and friends open their card they’ll smile and say “that’s so them!”
Your wedding guests will get a kick out of seeing you both truly happy and that you were thinking of them on your Big Day … it’s that extra personal touch that makes them feel special and lets them know just how appreciative you really are.
If you’re a fan of this idea, head over to our “Everything Wedding” Pinterest Board – you’ll find some other great “Thank You” photo ideas that we loved and hopefully they’ll work as inspiration for your own photo ideas. Work with your photographer to come up with a cute photo concept that you both love and make sure to remember to bring any props you may need (signs, Scrabble letters, etc.) on the day of the wedding.
Wedding Photo Thank You Notes
Once you’ve recovered from the wedding and honeymoon and are ready to return to your normal, everyday life, it’s time to get to those thank you notes. According to Emily Post, proper etiquette suggests that you send the cards within 3 months of the wedding (Click the above link for the dos and don’ts of thank you note etiquette).
