I think your best bet would be to prepare your thank you notes before the wedding. Presumably most people will give you money since you don’t have a registry and are moving out of the country, so you won’t have to specify the gift. If you receive any physical gifts I would unwrap them and then rewrite or just add a specific thank you for that gift to the note for that person. Then you can just drop them in the mail before you leave.

Fill them out beforehand.. mostly… then the morning after the wedding … just add a few sentences to make a reference to each specific gift… and drop them in the mail… it shouldnt take more than an hour.. have them already addressed and stamped… you can do it while you eat room service 🙂

maybe not a thank you for the gift , but more of a “thank you for celebrating our marriage with us! although your presence was gift enough, we would also like to extend a warm thank you to any contribution to our marriage you may have made”

Mrs_Purple:  I would probably mail them the day you’re leaving.  You can have them pretty much ready to go, add a note about the specific gift you were given and then pop them in the mail.  I think I would find it odd to be given a thank you note as I was leaving a wedding.  I also really dislike thank yous that have generic pre-printed messages (don’t know if that’s what you were planning or not)

I’m not sure if this was mentioned but why not thank you calls? It may be expensive but much more personalised.
