Huh, I’ve never heard the “one year to send a Thank You note” thing. That seems like an awfully long time.

But I have heard that a guest can send a wedding gift to the couple up to one year after the wedding. Maybe that’s where the myth stemmed from?

I’d heard a year as well, but perhaps for the same reason as @Mrs.D-To-Be.

I honestly think its best to start on TYs as SOON as you return from the honeymoon.  No time like the present, right?

I always heard that because guests have up to a year after the wedding to send gifts, brides have up to a year after the wedding to send TYs… I didn’t follow that rule, and I wished I had gotten mine out much more quickly than I did, but I let life get busy and didn’t make them a #1 priority…

Anyways, I have heard that rule, but I don’t agree with it 🙂

After 6 weeks have passed, I’d feel like I was really pushing it..

@Over the Moon:  Agreed! I’m addressing my shower thank yous before hand. I’m always impressed with a speedy thank you.
