Sooo it’s been over 2 months since my destination wedding and I still haven’t sent out my thank you notes. I know… I’m terrible! In my defense, I have been waiting on these cute post cards from Mexico that were supposed to be here a while ago. I’ve come to the conclusion that they are most likely NOT coming.
Now I’m embarrassed that my thank yous are so late! Should I include an apology for the delay in my card or just get them out ASAP and not say anything?

Over two months, meaning less than three months? I would just get them out ASAP. In fact, I wouldn’t consider these late at all!

I don’t think you’re that late. I would do it soon though.

I’d get them out soon, but not worry about apologizing. Just get them written and sent and people will be happy to get them within 6 months.

Lily_of_the_valley: I don’t think you’re that late but people may be STARTING to wonder. I’d just get them out, I don’t think you’re so late you need to apologize.
I got a thank you really late once (over 5 months) and it had a long drawn out list of BS excuses – “Ugh sorry these are late, we were moving blah blah blah” no one really wants to hear it lol

Lily_of_the_valley: They aren’t late yet, but if I were you I’d make it a priority to get them all done and mailed this week. I wouldn’t include an apology.

I would just do them asap. If you get them done in the next couple of weeks, no apology necessary.
If you feel the need to apologize, just apologize for the delay. Don’t make excuses -everyone’s busy.

Girl, they aren’t late yet – you’ve got three months! So I’d get them in the mail ASAP. No apology needed, but I think a truly genuine thank you note goes a long way even when it is late (vs. a generic letter or something similar).

I usually don’t even start thinking they are “late” until three months after. Even if they were late I probably would not apologize.

yeah, as long as you get them sent out around the 3 month mark, you’re ok. i sent my thank you’s out about 2.5 months after my wedding. i would have liked to have sent them out sooner, but was waiting to get my pictures from my photographer. one of my bridesmaids made a comment about them being sent out late, but she’s completely clueless about wedding etiquette, so i was just like, “screw you…” lol.

Lily_of_the_valley: I don’t think you’re late. I would get some thank you cards and get started now, but I’ve certainly waited longer for thank yous:) Plus … I always give the newlyweds a little bit of slack … you’re newlyweds, you should be allowed a little time to just enjoy each other after throwing a huge party!
