    I was very keen to get it over and done with, especially before I forgot what people gave us. Less than 1 month for most, 1 month for those whose address I had to get.

    2 month mark here! I made them on Shutterfly, added a couple pictures, wrote a nice Thank You and mailed those babies out!

    I sent them out around two months after the wedding. I would have sent them earlier but I wanted to send a photo thank you & I had to wait for our teaser pictures.

    I was ready to start writing them before we left for the honeymoon LOL.. but I decided to wait until we got back. So I sent them 2 weeks after the wedding.

    I did mine in about 1.5 months and we did photo Thank You cards. They were very well-received and while the holdup wasn’t bc of the photo (my photographer got back to me rather quickly), people assumed it was. Most were surprised that they even got a Thank You card and the rest commended us on how quickly we got them out. To be fair, for all the weddings we’ve attended/sent gifts to in the past five years, I’ve only gotten one Thank You card.

    Ugh, I waited WAY too long, and it actually really stressed me out.  I’d recommend doing them as soon as you can – just sit down with a good pen, a good movie, and just DO IT. 

    As for Christmas Cards, I really don’t think there’s anything wrong with sending them out at about the same time. I just wouldn’t send them together (ie in the same envelope) 😉 haha

    Well with me who didn’t go on a honeymoon.  We have been married for almost 1.5 years and I have yet to go on one.  But I had them sent out in less than 2 weeks

    They were out less than a month after the wedding. Wanted them done before the holidays.  Did all 65 in one afternoon.  My Shower thank you went out within a week.

    I also had a collage photo done (in CVS with non-pro pictures) which went with them; didn’t want to wait until pro-photos were ready.

    Send out the ones you have finished. And then skip the holiday cards. The thank you notes are far more important.

    Etiquette says 2 weeks…so you’re really overdue.
