@shaydenise: I kinda cringe every time there is a thank you card timeline post because now I am the culprit. It’s been 2.5 months since my wedding and I gave myself a 3 month deadline, but I feel like it’s getting to be a little later.

I did get my shower thank yous out BEFORE my wedding though. I thought that was standard as well.

In my family if you dont get thank yous you dont get gifts anymore so I ALWAYS do mine ASAP!

@shaydenise: Oh no, not at all! Before I even read them I just feel a pang of guilt…but that’s totally my own fault. I think you should have gotten a shower thank you by now definitely.

BARF. guilty! my wedding was 3 months ago and there were shower cards that have not been sent. Every time I think about it I feel like throwing up because of how late I am. I did end up having an abnormal amount of showers though.  like 8. Some got out and some didn’t. and I feel so bad!!!  Wedding thank-yous are coming along though. I want to have them out by the end of this month. is it too late to send shower thank-you’s?

I just a thank you card for my SIL’s wedding. (about 2.5 months after). But this post just reminded me that I never got a thank you for the shower! If the wedding thank yous have gone out, should I assume i’ll never get a thank you for my shower gift??

In my family not a lot of people do thank you notes for gifts, however for events like weddings and stuff thank you notes are expected asap. Most of my thank you’s were done the two days after my shower and had the rest done like a week and half after my shower! So for me I think you have valid point! Cause I come from a family that hardly ever does thank yous and even I knew to get those does stat!

I had my Saturday afternoon shower thankyou’s in the mail Monday morning, but haven’t even started our wedding thank you’s.  I was really hoping to order thank you cards with our wedding photo on them, but the teasers I’ve been sent aren’t what I want to use, and we also had a photobooth with our pro-photographer, so I wanted to put people’s pictures in there, so it’s a bit of a waiting game.  I do feel guilty though, since it’s been 1.5 months since our wedding.

I feel like it’s in everyone’s best interest if the shower thank-you’s are sent out immediately and more importantly before the wedding but stuff happens and people do get busy.

I sent my shower thank-you’s right after the shower and then my wedding thank-you’s within 3 weeks of the wedding. I broke them up into little batches for a few nights so my hand didn’t fall off. 🙂

I definately find it rude if a thank-you is not sent.

@Redeemed Rebekah:  I know how you feel, i am hitting the three month mark next week for our wedding and am planning to send them out.  We too waited for our photos to come in to make thank you cards with pictures.

Personally for me, i sent out our shower thank you cards the day after our wedding.  We only had a three weekends between our shower and wedding and i was just swamped with stuff to do.

i did get comments from close family about receving the shower thank you right after the wedding, but i figured better late than never!

So you ladies are a great kick in the butt! I finished all of my shower thank yous and did a bunch more of wedding thank- yous last night. From 5-9. Bla! Now I am just terrified to hand them out. I feel like everyone will be like. . . wow I forgot about this. Then it just makes me look bad. :
