The Art of the Thank You

I read a twitter post recently that a handwritten thank you note is the ultimate social media and I have to agree.  In an age of nonstop texts, emails and everything electronic, a handwritten thank you is such a lovely departure.  I got a thank you note from one of my recent couples with photos from the wedding and loved it!

When someone takes the time to send you a gift, a handwritten thank you note is a must.  I know it can be a pain (and when you have close to a hundred to write, it seems daunting and is the last thing you want to do after the craziness of your wedding and honeymoon), but consider it a non-negotiable. So knock off four or five each night with a glass of wine and an episode of Modern Family (okay, maybe that's just me--I love that show) and you'll be done in no time!  Here are some of our favorite ways to make your notes a little more fun and creative!

Turn some favorite wedding photos into vintage-style postcards!

Take a photo at your wedding just for your thank you notes:

Or if you forget to take a shot on your wedding day, you can always get creative after the fact with these fun T-shirts:

Anyone doing something really fun for thank you notes?  We'd love to hear your ideas!
