I had wanted to make custom thank you notes too but we got nearly all of our gifts before the wedding so it felt wrong to wait so long to send a thank you. We ended up just sending thank yous as the gifts came in. The advantage of this is that your guests are thanked immediately and they know their gift arrived and you aren’t so overwhelmed with doing all the thank yous at once.

I think you should send a thank you when you receive a gift.  You could always send out the fancy thank yous to everyone after the wedding thanking them for coming and thanking them again for the gift.

You need to send one as soon as you receive the gift. Could you make up thank you cards using engagment pictures instead?

I just got our first gift (crazy early but its a wonderful hand-me-down and they wanted to pass it on ASAP) and we will be sending a not-so-fancy thank you note card from the store. Later, we will send a second one thanking her for her prescence at the wedding. Im pretty our thank you notes will cooridinate with our invitations as well, but we haven’t designed them yet (we’re still working on our save the dates).

We bought cards that coordinate with our invites, and we’re sending them out as we receive gifts.  At 3 months out, we’ve already received gifts from about 25% of our guest list!  You can always send another card after the wedding thanking them for attending and enclosing a pic.
