If you’re going to send a picture to everyone you might as well wait for them. No point in wasting money on more stamps.

Technically you have a year. But I would say thank yous should go out within 5 months? 

I would say wait.

Etiquette states you have 90 days to get your thank yous out to your guests. I wanted to wait until we got our pictures too, and I did. I ordered photo thank you cards and just received them this past week, so I spent the weekend working on them. I have to put together two albums too, and those prints won’t be here until Wednesday, so I am going to wait until I have those put together before I send all of the thank yous out. I am really glad that I waited because the photo cards are amazing and I am sure the prints will be too. I have also included some guest pictures in with some of the thank you cards and I purchased some 5 X 7 frames for each of the wedding party (on clearance) and will be sending a picture in each frame of the entire wedding party to each of our wedding party members.

I agree with Noritake – no more than 90 days out (although 60 days seems more reasonable to me).  I get irritated when wedding thank you’s are received months and months after the big day.

As long as you get your pictures back in a decent amount of time, I’d wait since you want to include them.

I think 90 days is a good deadline, I have no idea where the whole ‘you have a year’ thing came from… but it just seems crazy! 

I’d write them out now while it’s still fresh and just slip the picture in and mail them when you can 🙂
