    I think three months max, but I really believe that thank you notes should be written as people receive the gift.  Many brides wait until after their wedding and after they get photos to send out thank yous for shower gifts and other gifts they received long before the wedding.

    MsGinkgo:  I will be trying to get my thank you notes a month after the wedding. If we receive anything before the wedding I will do the majority of the note right away so it is less to deal with. I personally don’t usually care whether there is a photo or not with the card. If you are waiting, for whatever reason, I would try to get the ones from the older guests out earlier because they are the biggest sticklers for getting thankyou’s quickly.

    Had to wait for my pics. My wedding was June 8 and we received the pics last week. Thank yous will be ordered this weekend.

    I voted for the month option. There are other circumstances where that isn’t feasible. I got a thank you post card from a wedding a year and a half later. Why even bother at that point. Geesh.
