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 am so happy with the quality, design, and colors of this announcement. I selected the upgraded paper option and it was just beautiful!"
"The baby brunch invite is very beautiful. The paper in thick card stock and the envenlopes are a very good quality. It was fairly easy to customize my order. I thought I had put in some wrong info. I e-mailed them, and they were able to fix it for me."
"This mug proved to be a perfect Father's Day gift for a proud new father. Designing the mug proved simple enough. Tiny Prints corrected an error I made, which I really appreciated. The pictures that I picked for the mug were perfectly placed, the color was very good, and the exposure was right on."
"I ordered these and used the suggestion of printing the name in white ink and their suggested font. However when I got them they are really hard to read the name. I wished I had used a darker or brighter color!"
"The design was modern/contemporary, which was chosen to compliment the shower card. This thank you card reminds the guests again of the distinct personality and the nod to details that the mother-to-be possesses. The mother-to-be chose not to have her name printed on the card since she wanted to personalize it with her own hand. The paper had a high quality weight that you find in high-end printing supplies."
