Photo Thank you Cards for Weddings

Ah, the big day has come and gone and it is time to share your thanks to everyone who has contributed to making your day - special.

A nice way to do this is to include a photo of you as a married couple. It can be from the wedding, or even after, now that you are Mr. and Mrs. It will be a nice memento for your guests.

A simple way to do this is with photo cards. The photo is printed on the card, along with your note of thanks. These are easily customized online, with a photo that you have stored in your computer.

This first design features a pretty blend of green and gold.


This next design features an abstract blend of purple and lavender.


The above designs features the photo placeholder on top of the design. If your photo doesn't line up quite right, just click on Customize It, and adjust the size and drag it to where it will work for you.

If you would like, you can also design your own, and add your own background, or not.


You can orient the card as vertical or horizontal once you've added a photo or text.

The photo cards measure eight by four inches, and make a nice keepsake.

White Wedding Flats


Are you looking for a pair of white dress shoes to compliment your wedding dress? I've done some browsing for you and have picked out my favorites. You'll find some variety here; sandals for summer time, and open toes for spring like weather, and closed toe for the colder months.

If you like flowers, these daisy sandals can fit the bill. They have an elastic strap around the back of the heel. The daisies wrap around the front of the ankle, and across from the outer ankles to the big toe.



If you like sandals and want a bit more coverage, then this pair might be a good choice. Crocheted uppers cover the top part of the foot. The crocheted inset has a lacy look to it. The strap around the back of the heel has a hook and loop closure for easy adjustment. The sole is made of rubber and this sandal comes in half sizes too.



Moving on to more coverage, are the peep toe shoes that have satin uppers. A rhinestone embellishment adds sparkle over the toes. They come in whole sizes and in a choice of ivory and white.



These closed toe shoes are decorated with both pearls and rhinestones that spread out over the toes. The uppers are covered in satin. This style comes in whole sizes, and in a choice of white and ivory.



For brides that are looking for extra comfort, then sparkle sneakers can be the ultimate choice. These lace up shoes offer flexibility in adjustment. They also come in whole and half sizes.
