    We were married 2 weeks ago and Darling Husband is driving me insane to get them out asap so I will be working on it soon.

    Our wedding was a month ago. We just received our photos a week and a half ago, and I finalized the order for our thank you cards today. I should receive the cards in another week and will try to send all of them within two months of the wedding. My husband wants to thank everyone ASAP. He wants me to write all 70+ cards, but he’d better help because it’s going to take forever! It was hard enough writing 30 thank yous after my shower.

    We sent all 70 thankyous within two months of our wedding. Aside from etiquette, I wanted to get them out before my good friend started celebrating her wedding events. I also just really wanted our wedding to be “finished” so we could relax!

    We waited three weeks for our wedding pictures to be done before starting because I wanted to use them for our thank yous. I think I got them out about 1-1.5 months after the wedding. I enjoyed doing the thank yous and getting them done! I did it by myself– I don’t think it needed to be a team effort, seeing as how my husband doesn’t enjoy doing it and it would have taken him a long time. He did write the thank yous for his groomsmen.

    Ours were sent out by the end of the next week. It helped our honeymoon didn’t follow our wedding.

    We had them all sent out by 1 month. I wanted them done. I wrote most of them, Darling Husband wrote most to his family. We mailed them all together.

    I started them as soon as we got back from our honeymoon and had I think, 100-120 thank yous done within a week. I feel guilty until I send a thank you note, so I hauled ass writing them out.

    We had them all done 3 days after we got back from our honeymoon (we took a 1-week honeymoon right after the wedding).  We had sent thank yous for all gifts received before the wedding (well, received at least 2 weeks before), so that helped. 

    We gave ourselves one night off after we returned from the honeymoon, and then decided to work on them each evening after work until they were done.  It only took 2 nights!  We received over 80 gifts in total, about half of which we sent thank yous for in advance of the wedding.  With the two of us working together and being organized about it, it was just not that hard, and we feel very good about getting it done with.

    We only had like 20 guests, so I was able to get them done within about 2 weeks. I wouldn’t have let it go longer than a month.

    craigslistgirl:  I sent mine within 2 weeks. Im a teacher and have the summer off so I immediately did it upon return from our honeymoon. I’m also a weirdo and I totally love writing thank you cards.
