We wrote a few to early gifters, but didn’t have time starting about 2 weeks before the wedding (when gifts really started coming in). I also had a shower 1 week before the wedding, so the number of cards is a lot!
I had heard it’s a good idea to write some on the flight to/from your honeymoon…but we could not motivate.
I just wrote about 10 today…Darling Husband says he’ll do the same when he gets home from work. I figure at that pace we should have ’em done within another month. Registry gifts are still coming in, though.

As far as I understand, you have a year to give a gift, but you should thank the gift gifter as soon as possible. I would not wait 6 months or a year.
Case in point, we received placesettings from DH’s grandfather and his wife. I sent a thank you 1 week later. One week after that I received an email asking if we had received the gift. They were worried it was lost/stolen/broken/hadn’t arrived. I assured her that we received it and that the thank you note was in the mail. It literally was in the mail and she received the note later that day. I would have felt extremely embarrassed/guilty had it not been in the mail when she inquired.

It took us almost exactly 2 months to complete our thank you’s. Tomorrow will be two months and we sent the last of them out 2 days ago!

Our wedding was in September, and our goal was to get them out before Thanksgiving. We had over 200+ to write, so we took it one step at a time and did 10-15/night. It got us through the hard ones and we mailed them all out right before the holiday.

We havent even started our thank yous! But I was planning on waiting until we got our pro pics so I could get photo thank you cards made, and also include a 4×6 group shot for everyone. I dont think anyone will mind if they get their thank yous 2 months later… will they??

I just finished 20 more today so including brother/sisters we have about 15 left. Granted about 40 of them are sitting around waiting to get a stamp on them but they are written!!!

It took us one month since we came back from the honeymoon. I just wanted to get them done right away!

I took longer than I wanted- it can be so hard right after the wedding! I got them out about 2 and 1/2 months after. I had waited for pictures from the photog too- so that held me a bit. If you only 17 days out, you’re fine! Enjoy being a newlywed and the TYs will get done soon – try to do a few each night. Congrats on your marriage!
