My wedding was May 22. About a week after we got married we moved about two hours away and during the move I lost all of my addresses. I just got done writing out all of my Thanks yous and I have the addresses for some but I still cant find others. I feel really bad about this so I called my mom and asked her what she thought and she told me its just wayyy to late to send out the Thank yous and everyone probably thinks I’m really rude for not thanking them yet.
I. feel. awful. Is it too late???? Will my guests just think I’m lazy if they get their thank you 2 1/2 months after the wedding???? Whats your thoughts??

No way! It’s never too late to be polite 😉
And I just got a Thank You note last week from a wedding I went to last AUGUST. I just though, well, better late than never.

i would send them out; it’s never too late. if you are having a hard time tracking down addresses, at the very least start calling people to thank them and explain the situation; people will be very understanding of your prediciment and appreciate the fact you reached out. don’t let your gifts go unacknowledged.

I would much rather receive a Thank You a few months after the wedding than not at all! I doubt people will even think it’s late.

I got married May 22, and haven’t even started my thank you’s. You have time still!

ABSOLUTELY send them out. A lot more folks will remember that you did NOT send them a thank you note than the fact that is was late. Most people understand that between the honeymoon and settling into life together, a new couple is busy those first few months. Being 2.5 months late isn’t too bad.

You are only two months out from your wedding! And considering a honeymoon and a move, you are well within the reasonable amount of time to send them out. I agree with the others that you should always send a thank you note, no matter how late it is, but I don’t even consider you to be late. And I’m a stickler for things like this!

Yikes…what’s your mom’s rule for sending out thank yous? I had my wedding September 1st and my goal was to get my thank you cards out before Christmas. I say send away! Not to mention, what better way for people to get YOUR new address??

Yes! Your guests want to know you got their gifts.

I agree not too late. I recently went to a wedding and I was talking to that bride a few weeks ago, she said you have a year to send wedding Thank You notes and 6 months from your shower thank yous. I thought six months from the shower sounded too long, but I guess that would explain why I did not get a Thank You yet for her shower or wedding. I assume they will be coming together at this point. I don’t give gifts for thank you’s, but I do think people like to know that you received their gift.

It’s never too late! We only finished all of our thank yous a month before our baby was born. We were bummed that the last few took so long, but we were determined to get them out!
