Mmm I’m more in the camp of personalized thank you cards, but maybe because I love cards in general. 🙂 We took some time to get ours out as well (around the 2, 2.5 month mark). Our excuse mostly was we went on our honeymoon immediately after the wedding and then moved to Hawaii (a military move), so by the time we got moved and settled, several months had slipped away from me…

We talked about just buying generic cards, but I really wanted to do something personal. We went to the beach, wrote thank you in the sand, also put our left handprints and rings in the prints, and went to Zappos and ordered them into post cards. I know some of our guests were sort of like ‘where are our thank you cards…’ but once they got our personalized ones, they LOVED them and said it was well worth the wait! 

But really, as long as they are hand written, I think that’s the most important. But if you want to order personalized ones, make sure you do it ASAP! 🙂

Generic is totally fine.

Huh, I’ve never even heard of personalized stationary for thank you cards. I am so not in the etiquette loop. A regular card is fine as long as you have a handwritten, personalized note. Ours are plain cards with “Thank You” on the front, and we are writing notes to each person/family inside. They are a little fancy though (pearlized ivory).

We had a thank you banner that we held and had pictures with so I can’t have my cards made until we get our pictures back. I have asked a few friends of mine that were at the wedding (that I felt comfortable asking and knew they would tell me the truth) and they told me they would rather wait for the customozed photo card then get a generic one.
