I don’t see two months as too long. I wouldn’t push it much past that but still it is a reasonable amount of time. Ours went out nearly three months later due to an issue with the printer.

Just let it go and try to work on them when you have a moment over the holidays. 🙂

I think you technically have a year, but I don’t think anyone should wait that long nowadays!  How many do you have? 

 

@Rubbs:  You too, how many do you have?

Mine were done in April.  I wasn’t working, so I watched tv and drank a glass of wine for every ten i finished.  We had 80 people so I took  two days 😀 😀 

Oh and I did write a little something in there about the time I spent with them either at the reception or the rehersal as well as how much they meant to me in my life.  Once you start them it’s not to bad, it’s the DREAD of doing it.

  • Wedding: November 2013

@figgnewton:  I actually never received a thank you card from several of the weddings I attended (and I did give a gift at each of these).  I honestly didn’t care.  They are all good friends of mine and I chalked it up to the old “life happens” excuse.  

I hope to send our cards out soon after we get married next November, but I also know that my fiance and I both work quite a bit and have other obligations as well (for instance, I volunteer on the weekends).  We’ll see what happens.

In response to your original question, though, I don’t think waiting two months is a big deal.  Unless you have nothing going on in your life (and I’m sure you, like most people, do!), your family should give you some slack.  I wouldn’t worry about it too much … You’ll send them out when you have time.

@peachacid:  I had exactly 100 guests, but it will probably be about 60 thank you’s.

@figgnewton:  Yes, because you thank them for attending, not for the gift. About 20% of our guests did not bring any gift but we sent thank you cards to all of them.

@Rubbs:  Yikes.  20 isn’t that bad, but 60…yikes.  I plan to send cards, with a nice little note: “Thanks, Sarah, for coming to our wedding.  It was awesome to see you — we need to get together more often.  LastName Cousins!”  

 

People shouldn’t expect an entire page…what the hell…

@peachacid:  You know what my problem has been, honestly, I have yet to look at my professional pictures. I did not care for my photographers. In just a few pictures I’ve seen that my husband got off their website, I wasn’t very happy.  I’m afraid I’m going to look at them and cry my eyes out. But I have to stop being like that and get on it. I am off from work for Xmas break, and will work on them then.

@Rubbs:  What does that have to do with thank you notes?  

 

And I am soooo worried I will feel the same way.  I cry almost every time I see a formal picture of myself.  =(

@peachacid:  Well we plan on putting one of the professional pictures as the thank you card.
