    1 – 2 weeks. Just send the ones you have finished now and continue working your way through them.

    @LGenz: I agree, don’t sweat it! Just give yourself a few more days to finish it. Sometimes you just have to make yourself sit down and do it.

    In the thank you cards for the shower, do I sign just my name? Or my name and FI’s name?

    I did 1/2 after I got home that night, and the other 1/2 the following day.

    @Evie19:  I just signed my name, unless they gave me a card that was to both of us.  When addressing the card, I took my cue to how the guest signed their names. 

    I figure that the shower was held in my honour, so the cards should have my name.

    @ArwenBride: Thanks. Thats what I thought too, but I read (on the knot I think?) that it should be signed by both because the gifts are essentially for both of us as a couple?

    It took me forever for some reason. I finished in like 5 weeks, i think. I received thank you notes from showers I attended in the meantime before I got mine out…whoops!

     

    PS Hi date twin! 🙂

    It took me several weeks, for personal reasons that seemed to make sense at the time. But eventually I did feel awful about taking so long.

    Under normal circumstances, I would have wanted to get them out within two or three weeks. I wrote and sent the majority of our wedding thank-you notes within three weeks of the wedding.

    I always make myself do thank you notes the day after events.  So therefore, I did them the day after my shower so I could get them over with.  People REALLY appreciate it when you send them one right away, I had several people say how nice it was that I did it immediatly.

    @KateByDesign: I just ordered my thank you cards, and you just inspired me to fill in my calender 2 days after the shower: “Write and Send Thank You Cards!” 🙂

    I’m going to have 90 to write…yikes!

    I think I sent them 1 week later.  My shower was sort of early and I wanted to get the thank you’s out before I sent the wedding invitations. I knew once the invites went out, I’d be dealing with RSVPs and actual wedding gifts, so I just wanted to get all the shower-related stuff over and done with first.
