Hi everyone. We got married 3/9. We have yet to send out thank you cards. We have them addressed though, just need to write them. We planned our wedding for about 16 months so we are enjoying not doing anything wedding related. We will send them out,just have to take the time to do it.
One of our wedding guests asked me this past week where her thank you card was. I also posted something on Facebook today about this is the perfect weather. She wrote that this is the perfect weather to writesomething-as in our thank you cArds. I’m so annoyed about it that I don’t even k ow what to write in her thank you card. Should I confront her about it and tell her to stop? How long do I have to write thank you notes?

I think it would be perfectly fine to say something like, “Thank you so much for the reminder! DH and I have been so wrapped up in our newlywed bliss!” and then work on getting them out in the next couple weeks. It’s VERY rude that she keeps reminding you, but it’s been a couple months so I can kind of see where she would feel a little irked that she hadn’t gotten a thank you yet.

Honestly she should lighten up. 1 month really isn’t long at all. I’d definitely try to get them wrapped up in the next couple weeks though.

Wow, the FB comment is over the line.
Send her like 5 thank you cards. 😛

I think most wedding etiquette sites and books say a few months is the max to send out the thank yous. Did your friend send you the gift prior to the wedding? Has it been more than a month since you actually received their gift and just a month since the wedding? Or did they give you the gift at the wedding?
I have received cards back later than that. One friend got married in April and I received the thank you card for Christmas.
I can understand their annoyance in the thank you taking a while. I am one of the people that sends thank yous out pretty quick (like within days) but, even if you were over the “time limit” they really shouldn’t have said something about the note. Just ignore it. Don’t say something back as a come back. Just write the other notes, say something nice to them about the gift and forget about it. You don’t have to be rude just because someone else is rude.

This woman has issues. It’s only been a month since you got married. Yes, you should get on them soon, but give me a break. I think as long as you get them out within 3 months it’s OK but the sooner the better.
What she did is very bad manners. I wouldn’t even respond, because I can’t think of anything nice to say to a comment like that 🙂 I might even just delete her comment.
I hate FB more and more every day.
