Late is better than never! People understand. And if they don’t? Oh well. Move on! 🙂

Im sure people know atleast about your mom. (Sorry for your loss btw). At least youre getting them out- better late then never. People will understand. Sometimes life gets in the way of being Miss Manners. Send them and forget about it.

My $0.02?

Thank you notes than come many months later, and include a personal note about how my gift to them has been used/has helped, are very much appreciated. I like those much better than the quick but general thank yous. ijs

Before this site, I would have never thought twice if I didn’t get a thank you card.  Seriously, not even a single thought about it.  I think the general public is probably in the same boat.  Dont worry.  No one is going to hound you about it (other than on this site).

Better late than never. You had a lot going on. If I were one of your guests, I would still be pleased as punch to receive your thank you note now.

I am incredibly sorry for your loss. I lost my mother and my uncle/godfather both less than 2 years ago. I feel your pain and am here if you need to talk.

Your guests will absolutely understand why they were late. Don’t stress over it and just get them out when you can.

If I knew a bride had lost her mom in that time I would just assume something much more important took precedence and wouldn’t think twice about it.

Thank you cards are something people do not really notice until you do not send them or send them late. Unfortunately you have had more than your fair share of shit to deal with. I am sorry for your losses. Keep in mind that while some of us are good about sending thank yous in a timely manner, many people are not. It is not uncommon to receive a card much later.

I think you are fine. If I was your guest and knew the last 6 months that you had- I would be touched that you went to the effort (even late) to thank me.
