    We did a lot before the wedding for shower gifts, and got the wedding gift thank yous out within 2 weeks after the wedding.

    We got married mid-February, and I sent my half out by the first week of July.  My hubby, on the other hand, sent them out right around the one-year mark.  He wanted to do his half of the fam, which was great for me, but also not so great since he took FOREVER to send them!

    We had them out in 2 weeks. But we had a small wedding and told people no gifts were necessary, so we didn’t have as many to do.

    Writing thank you cards is teadious so my H and I tried to make it a little fun. We put on a movie and pulled out a bottle of wine and we each wrote half. Once we got started it was easy, getting the motivation to start working on them was the hard part lol

    I got ours out in about 2-3 weeks, but I also had two weeks off after the wedding due to a job change. So, I definitely had a lot more time on my hands than I normally would!

    Hello Date Twin!!! I still haven’t sent mine out from my March 10, 2012 wedding. I wrote some when we got back from the honeymoon, but I’m in my last semester of law school, so kind of got swamped with that. I plan to do them on some down time before bar prep, and right after my last final early part of May. So, it’ll be 2 months when they go out. We went to a wedding last July and got a thank you this past March. I was annoyed, so I won’t wait that long even if yes she was within her year to get them out.

    We got ours out the first week after the wedding. Darling Husband wrote the ones for my family and I wrote the ones for his (we split friends 50/50), so it went quick! We had a shorter honeymoon (only 4 days), so we had plenty of time. I think it’s great that you’re including a picture with the recipient in yours OP!

    I got most of ours done between 1 and 2 months after…I wanted to do them sooner, but for our thank-you’s we ended up putting one of our professional pics onto the card.  So we had to wait until we got our pictures from our photographer first.
