Once all is said and done, you still aren't completely done. The 'Thank yous' need to be sent out to all who helped celebrate.
We wanted to keep our theme of personalized and created by us even through the thank you notes, although by this time I was getting slightly burned out. With the abundance of available options online, it took me not being able to find something I thought was "us" to decide on designing and printing one myself. We were happy with the result, even if it wasn't as polished as the online options.
We got our sneak peek pictures back pretty quickly so I knew that we had to include some of them for others to see. My thought was to use the pictures as much as possible, otherwise they will mostly just sit in a folder on my computer. And I also wanted to include our colors one more time.
I kept the design simple because I mainly wanted to make the pictures the highlight. And I wanted to include more than just one or two photos. I used Canva again to create the thank you cards, same online graphic design platform that I used for the Save the Dates. And I was able to print them off at a local printing shop.
The longest part of this project was writing the individual thank you notes. But there is no other way I would have done it. Each note deserves to be personalized and hand-written because each person that helped us celebrate our marriage deserved the time it took to write a personal note. We couldn't have asked for a better celebration to the start of our marriage!
