So we got married Oct 19 2012. Annnnnnnnnnnnnddddd we forgot to send out thank you cards. I was going through my office and found the box of cards and now I don’t know what to do! Is it even worth it to send them out this late? Would that just draw attention to what crappy forgetful people we are or is late better than never? Should we put at the top “We know this is ridiculously late but…” I really want everyone to know how much i appreciate them being at our wedding and their gifts but I don’t know if it’s too late. HELP! Advice and opinions really appreciated
BUT PLEASE DO NOT SAY “I CANT BELIEVE YOU FORGOT, THATS SO RUDE, YOU’RE AWFUL, HORRIBLE” Constructive comments only!

Yes … Better late than never. The people that took the time to get you gifts deserve a thank you.

When it comes to sending thank you notes, late is ALWAYS better than never!

Yes, mail them. Mention by word of mouth your mistake.
Also I think postage went up since last year. If you didn’t use Forever stamps, make sure your postage is still correct!

Definitely still send them out, better late than never, and some guests may be wondering where they are!

Someone else posted almost exactly the same thing, but her wedding was in June. So you’re not alone. 🙂 Don’t worry about being late; just send the cards & be done with it.

Take a few hours and write em out and send them. It’s a token of appreciation that is better late then never. Also you are only 2 months out as of today, so I would just try to get them out as soon as you can.
EDIT: my bad! I read it quick and didn’t realize you said 2012. Nonetheless, I still to the REST of my advice. Get em out now! 🙂

@stillme: yes but this OP’s wedding was more than a year ago.
OP, yes, you must still send thank you cards. I think that at this point, it’s been long enough that it wouldn’t hurt to include a short apology about their lateness. However, a late thank you card is ALWAYS better than none at all.

@jlc3: OP’s wedding was in October of last year.

@jlc3: She’s 14 months out (October 2012), but I agree, better late than never!

Send them out now. Don’t use being late as an excuse to delay them forever.

@Alip22: Don’t beat yourself up hon, people will smile to be reminded of your wedding when they get the thank you card.

This is something I would do! Send them out. People will be happy to get them.

OP, I’d definitly still send them out. I think I personally would add this little apology part you suggested or something like “can you believe it’s been 14 months already. time flew by so quickly….”
