I don’t think that’s too late at all! You’re definitely okay!

I think it would be fine to wait since you don’t want to give these people your old address!  Plus since the wedding hasn’t passed yet, you aren’t in the bad manners territory of Emily Post.

You have up to a year but they should be sent out asap. 1 month is fine.

A month is fine! I gave someone a gift and they sent out their thank yous about a month later and i still really appreciated it!!!

It’s NEVER too late to say ‘thank you’.  Within a month or two is completely reasonable.

Not too late at all!  People will be happy to receive them whenever you send them! 🙂

a month is fine!  Plus I’m under the belief that even if it was late, I’d rather receive it, than no thanks at all!

Thank you notes are better late than never…always! The etiquette on a thank you card involves 2 things – promptness and sincerity. People will understand that you guys are going through a lot right now (engagement, moving) so they will be happy to receive a thank you note whenever you are able to get them out! Just dont forget!

I’m a big stickler about these things, and I wouldn’t even bat an eyelash at one month. It’s totally fine (although if you are worried and there are only ten of them, why not handwrite your current return address rather than print new ones?)
