No way!  It’s never too late to be polite 😉

And I just got a TY note last week from a wedding I went to last AUGUST.  I just though, well, better late than never.

i would send them out; it’s never too late.  if you are having a hard time tracking down addresses, at the very least start calling people to thank them and explain the situation; people will be very understanding of your prediciment and appreciate the fact you reached out. don’t let your gifts go unacknowledged.

I would much rather receive a Thank You a few months after the wedding than not at all! I doubt people will even think it’s late.

I got married May 22, and haven’t even started my thank you’s. You have time still!

ABSOLUTELY send them out. A lot more folks will remember that you did NOT send them a thank you note than the fact that is was late. Most people understand that between the honeymoon and settling into life together, a new couple is busy those first few months. Being 2.5 months late isn’t too bad.

You are only two months out from your wedding!  And considering a honeymoon and a move, you are well within the reasonable amount of time to send them out.  I agree with the others that you should always send a thank you note, no matter how late it is, but I don’t even consider you to be late.  And I’m a stickler for things like this!

Yikes…what’s your mom’s rule for sending out thank yous? I had my wedding September 1st and my goal was to get my thank you cards out before Christmas. I say send away! Not to mention, what better way for people to get YOUR new address??

Yes! Your guests want to know you got their gifts.

I agree not too late. I recently went to a wedding and I was talking to that bride a few weeks ago, she said you have a year to send wedding Thank You notes and 6 months from your shower thank yous. I thought six months from the shower sounded too long, but I guess that would explain why I did not get a Thank You yet for her shower or wedding. I assume they will be coming together at this point.  I don’t give gifts for thank you’s, but I do think people like to know that you received their gift.

It’s never too late!  We only finished all of our thank yous a month before our baby was born.  We were bummed that the last few took so long, but we were determined to get them out!
