Don’t you have a year after to even send a gift?

Hmmmm, I was always under the impression that this was standard.

Although knowing myself I will be writing them out on the honeymoon 🙂

I have read 6 months to a year is acceptable. I think most people just want to get them out of the way and tend to do it sooner

Love me some Emily Post.

I’m still “waiting” on a thank you from a July 2010 wedding. Flew across country, and as it was a backyard wedding, my gift covered the plate of about ten people. The groom (my friend) requested my address again last month, since they lost their guest book. Maybe he’ll bring the thank you to my wedding. :)-

I do not think 6 months is acceptable at all! How rude to make the other person wait 6 months before they are sure you actually received their gifts.

@pineapplelove:  Oh, agreed! I’m just quite a bit more understanding now that I’ve been a bride myself!

Dear Emily Post: My husband’s father passed away within three months of our wedding. We are grateful for our wedding gifts, but sorry; everyone will just have to wait more than three months for their thank you card. We hope our guests can forgive us, and that even those that probably haven’t heard the news might be mindful enough of others to consider the possibility of something like this happening as not to feel they’ve been completely forgotten. We’ll get to it, and everyone will receive it, smile, recycle it, and hopefully, promptly go on with their lives.

@SoupyCat:  I agree with you 100%. I feel like thank you cards are so simple. If somoene hates doing them so much or they have a very busy life write 5 a day. That will take all of 20 minutes a day. Even if you have to write 200 thank you notes, they will be finished in less than a month and a half.

3 months was my goal… But I unfortunately was closer to David’s timetable… Oh well!
