A well written and personal thank you note is always so appreciated. Even more so with a photo. There are many software programs that can help you do this, and your guests will love seeing a different view of the day. While common etiquette says you have a year to do this, try to do it within three months of your wedding. And while we all love email, this is one instance where an email does not cut it.

Don’t forget to send notes to the professionals who made your wedding memorable; your florist who found white orchids in December; photographer who caught every moment; New Jersey wedding officiant who wrote the most amazing ceremony (;-); the banquet hall manager who made the day seamless, the musicians who got everyone dancing. Your kind words mean more than you know.
