Is it okay to send a simultaneous wedding thank you and Christmas card? It's been over nine months, but we finally said thank you to all our loved ones who celebrated our Joyous Day with us, just in time for Christmas. I had debated designing telegram cards for our wedding invitations, but ended up not doing so, which made them perfect as thank you cards. The color scheme derived from our wedding invitations, which also conveniently evoked Christmas cheer. I designed the card (inspired from here), mail merged personalized content for all our dear guests, inserted a photo of the Mister and me before tying the suite up with baker's twine and a stamped "thank you" tag, and stuffing it into a kraft envelope with a baker's twine reminiscent address label. These little cards are not enough to thank our loved ones for their ongoing support and love, but please know, if any of you are reading, that we love and are so thankful for you. You mean so much to us, and God is too kind to us through you all.
