We don’t see thank you cards like this one every day! This Featured Favorite, a wedding thank you card, was created by Brett and Gabriella for their May wedding. When we saw the photo with Pope Francis, we just had to hear their story.
Sending wedding thank you cards is a must as you and your new spouse enter wedded (eh-hem, responsible) life. Your family, friends, colleagues and neighbors took time out of their lives to join in your special day, so taking the time to thank them is necessary. But don’t think that every thank you card has to be the same. There can be ways to spruce it up a bit to share memories and moments with your guests. Here are 3 wedding thank you ideas to make your card stand out when guests are opening them.
1. Include printed photos of the guests. This idea has been a hit with friends and family! All you have to do is simply print off photos (that your photographer will give you) of your guests enjoying their time at your wedding. Include one or two pictures in your thank you card envelope and you’re done. It’s an added surprise, plus it brings back fun memories from the day. (Use idea #1 from this post to be sure you get a photo of every guest!)
From your save the date cards to your thank you notes, all your wedding stationery can have the same awesome look–if you know where to shop! Some stationery companies are known for their formal ensembles, but what if that’s not the look you want? For a more contemporary look, try Pear Tree Greetings, a company that’s known for its modern photo cards and amazing designs.
Your save the date cards are the first things your guests will see regarding your wedding (and may even serve as an engagement announcement for those who haven’t heard the news)! It’s an important piece of information, but that doesn’t mean it has to be formal. If it reflects your personality as a couple, then everyone who receives it will be delighted. It’s not necessary to match your save the dates to the rest of your wedding stationery, but if you can, why not?

You want your wedding day to be a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, memorable event, but you don’t have an unlimited budget. Here are some wedding ideas that will help you keep costs under control. Even one or two of them could save you hundreds of dollars!
Flowers: A growing trend at larger flower stores and farmers markets is to offer DIY workshops where you can bring friends and create your own bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres or floral decorations a few days before the wedding. We’ve also heard of people offering to do it as a gift to the wedding couple. Another way to save money on flowers is to go green and skip the flowers altogether. Create your bouquets and arrangements out of greens only, which are less expensive than flowers.
Invitations: Wedding invitations can run from ultra high-end to DIY. If you’re considering a rustic or more casual theme, this might be a good place to save money. Pear Tree offers beautiful two-sided wedding invitations for less than $1 each!

We all know the importance of sending wedding thank you cards to guests who helped celebrate your special day, and what you say in the thank you card is important, too. Here are some answers to 5 common wedding thank you card wording questions, from what to say, to when to mail them out!
1. When addressing my wedding thank you cards, how formal do I have to be?
You can be as formal or informal as you’d like to be. Do what feels natural to you, so it sounds genuine. Also, when addressing the card be sure to acknowledge everyone who attended the wedding. For example, if a family with kids came to celebrate your day, you can address it to “The Miller Family” or list out the name of each family member so that nobody feels left out, and the parents know you appreciated the kids coming as well.
