Posted: Updated:

Once the reception is over and you've settled into newly-married life, it's time to think back and reflect on your Big Day and all of the special people who traveled near and far to celebrate your nuptials. Express your gratitude with a heartfelt handwritten thank you note. With all of the options available (photo, no photo, hand made, etc.), couples can really make their moment of gratitude meaningful with the right set of thank you cards.

Say thanks with a photo collage from your big day.
