For the past two weeks we've been working on sending out our thank you cards. We've been writing and mailing a few at a time so that it's not such an annoying, tedious task. Kristian has actually been a big help and written most of the ones for his family and friends. His thank you cards are not only very personal but quite humorous. For example he wrote in his aunt's card that I'm afraid the Indian artifact she gave us (don't ask) is really some sort of fertility thing and I refuse to keep it in the bedroom. HAHA. I hope his aunt has a sense of humor!
Something like this:
When I first mentioned the idea to Kristian he thought it was kind of cheesy and lame. But to be honest at first he thought most of my wedding ideas were cheesy and lame only to turn around after the fact and tell me what a great idea it ended up being. Moral of the story--Shannon is always right!
I tasked him with making our Thank You sign before the wedding since he's the one with all the artistic ability in our little family. He made the sign to look similar to our invitation design and my Type A Control freak thought it turned out great. I told him if the photo didn't turn out well or if he still thought it was cheesy once it was done we wouldn't send it.
Well of course he gave in and we've sent out more than half of our thank you cards and gotten great feedback on them. People seem to actually want to keep these more so than they would a generic thank you card. I've already seen the card displayed on the counter at my In-laws house and my brother and SIL's house. So I guess my "cheesy" and "lame" idea turned out pretty good.
Here's a pic of the card which we printed via VistaPrint. The inside is completely blank and I've whited out our last name.
