Congratulations on your first Christmas married to this special person! Newlywed Christmas cards are a great way to let people know that you are married and to introduce them to your new spouse (and if applicable, stepchildren). Here are some tips for these cards.
You should do you as a couple or as a family. For example, that means if you really love your wedding portraits but there is nothing Christmassy about them, do not sweat the matter. You can make the message read something like, “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” to get the holiday spirit across. You could also use red borders or other Christmassy touches to clarify the intent of the card. Another popular phrase for such cards is, “A Very Married Christmas!” Just do what suits the two of you as a couple; if you do not like wordplay, a simple “Merry Christmas!” is great.
If children are involved, including them in the photo(s) displayed on the card can be an excellent way to start the holidays off on the right foot. Such a photo also signifies to your loved ones that your new spouse’s family is yours, and vice versa. Personalized Christmas stockings in the background are one approach for getting a family-friendly home decor look into the card.
Some marriages come as a surprise to many people. For example, you may have eloped to save money or to avoid wedding-planning problems you thought were inevitable. On the other hand, you may have held a small and intimate wedding and were not able to invite as many people as you would have liked. A note included with the Christmas card is not the time to apologize for not inviting someone to a wedding. Simply let your joy radiate from the card.

"I was looking for a simple yet elegant card to send basically everyone on my Christmas card list! We have lived in the suburbs for 22 years, so this is a BIG DEAL!! When I found Tiny Prints, I was impressed with everything about the product and ordering experience. Then when the cards came with matching labels, I was so excited!! I had never used Tiny Prints, but when people asked who I got the great cards from, they HAD heard of them! So obviously a great reputation was already there! Thank you, Tiny Prints, for the PERFECT, great quality cards and labels!! I have sent them all out!! I will be back!!!"
"I was thoroughly pleased with these cards. It is certainly a fun little splurge and I look forward to showing them off to my fellow moms. We so often meet moms out and about and talk about play dates. The paper quality is sturdy enough to hold up in my wallet or purse so they are always at the ready!"
"The cards were as cute and perfect as the picture I saw. It was easy to complete my order an fast. The quality of the paper and the color was really amazing!!"
"The card turned out beautiful! I'm using them as General thank you cards and notes to my son teachers. The card is very elegant with a nicer green pattern."
