@steene222:  A surprise shower!  Such a sweet gesture.  If you have time, I would send the shower thank yous now so you don’t have to think about them anymore.  Or you can wait; either way!

I’m not sure why you would need to send thank you cards for your elopement?  With a traditional wedding, thank you cards are just sent for gifts; the thank you for attending is the wedding reception.  You don’t need to thank people for watching your ceremony webcast, IMO.  You could send a wedding announcement if you wanted, though.  🙂

My shower was 5 weeks before my wedding and I was stressed about getting out the thank you cards.  With only 2 weeks until your wedding you have to prioritize and IMO thank you cards are not a priority right now.

I think it would be fine to wait. 2 weeks will fly by.

I had a shower a couple months ago for our December elopement and I had those puppies out in under two weeks.  I just wanted it done, and if I somehow get another shower or two in between now and when we leave, I’ll do the same.
