I found an awesome idea for wedding thank you notes from the bride and groom at a bridal fair I went to back in February and being the crafty-good-idea pirate that I am, I've decided to steal it. But out of the good of my heart I thought I would share it with my fellow craft luvas.
My fiance were flipping through some vendor's album of former weddings when we got to the back where thank you notes of former couples were displayed. A couple had a picture taken of them on the wedding day kissing and each holding a part of a thank you sign. (The bride was holding "Thank" and the groom was holding the "You" card.) What a personal way to say thank you, and its a card that guests will be sure to keep because it will remind them of your big day! I'm sure they just formatted it and had them printed on cardstock. Hope this helps!
Happy planning!

That is a great idea... I will have to use it for my next marriage (just kidding), maybe could be for a baby gift thank you too... mom and dad with the signs?

Actually my friends who just had a baby have been sending periodic pictures but so you know how old the little munchkin is the've been setting up baby blocks spelling out 3 WEEKS OLD and so on. You could probably do this, take a picture of the little cuties with some baby blocks set up spelling out thank-you and the baby's name or something.

I actually did this as invitations when my daughter was 2.  I made up a sign saying "Please come to my birthday party" and had the where and when on the sign as well.  I took about 8 pictures and then had doubles made to send out (before the days of digital).  My whole family still has theirs (she's now 12).  It was a HUGE hit!

This is such a cute idea that I am going to use it for my own wedding Thank Yous.  That's not infringement of copyright is it???

Ahhh, if only we had a decent printer at home instead of having to wander down the block and take my chances with the public access one Smiley

I've gained lots of great ideas from Craftster for my planning, so much creativity in one forum!

I've been thinking about doing something like this for our engagement announcements and our thank you cards.  There are also a lot of places where you can get pictures made as post cards online. 

These are for buying stickers to put on the backs of the photos to make them post cards (you have to make all the photo prints). http://www.photostix.com/

Here's somebone's instructions on how to make the picture into the best format for printing and using ohotos as post cards: http://www.boyink.com/portfolio_comments/495_0_4_0_C9/

My friend actually did this for her wedding a few years ago. After the ceremony, but before the reception, they got the photographer to take a picture of them standing on steps.  They were kissing, and each one held a sign (I think she had 'Thank' and he had 'You'). My friend got the picture from the photographer (he was a friend of the groom) and printed it on cardstock.  It was really cute (and it saved them money).

I made these for my wedding. All you have to do is get copies of the picture you want to use made or print them out yourself and then buy "Picture Frame Cards" at the craft store. They come with the envelopes and everything, then you just slide the picture in the card. We had a private wedding so this was a way to share our wedding with people we care about, we got so many calls about how everyone loved the cards and alot of people framed them or still have them displayed in their house.

We didn't tell alot of people we were getting married until we actually did so I was thinking instead of doing the thank you we could hold a sign that  said something like "guess what we got married!" and send them out as announcements but we didn't end up doing that for some reason....
