Just send them – no need to mention that they are 3 months after the wedding 🙂  People will understand that there was a honeymoon and a few holidays over the last 3 months, and it’s always better late than never.

Ours didn’t get sent until just before 3 months too. And for the other weddings we went to this year, that was actually one of the earliest! I wouldn’t worry about it, go ahead, write, and send!

Even if they are a little later than you planned, at least you sent them.  I think even at 3 months, they will be appreciated and worth the effort.  I don’t think you have to acknowledge how late they are; you should just write heartfelt thanks and move on.

Dear Aunt Sue and Uncle Joe,
Thank you so much for the __.  We were honored that you were able to celebrate our wedding with us, and hope you enjoyed yourself!  Looking forward to seeing you both soon!
Love.
___

I say send them. The holidays complicate things a bit. We have friends that got married in the middle of November and they haven’t sent any out yet. They thanked us in person as well. I don’t think anyone is insulted by this…it was soon Thanksgiving, and then Christmas/NY, etc. and now they are headed off on their Honeymoon.They’ve had alot going on. I imagine it might take a bit longer as I am going to get photo-printed Thank You cards so I would imagine I need to wait for the photographer to give us our photos, then get them printed, etc and that takes time too. Now, we have also attended at wedding where we NEVER got a Thank You card and that pissed me off…Fiance didn’t even get a groomsman gift…no simple card expressing appreciation or anything and I thought that was rude, too.

It’s definitely not too late. I think the three-month mark is actually becoming pretty normal. And I don’t think you need to acknowledge the timing. Just write them as you’d have written them one week after the wedding. 🙂

It’s never too late to be polite. People understand that the first few weeks after a wedding are a busy time for a new couple.

In my family, people never talk about the thank you cards that arrive late but they ALWAYS mention the ones that never came ,…

Write, write, write.

Please DO NOT not write them because you feel they are too late, much better to write them!!

Definitely get started on those! There’s no need to mention the lateness. I’d have Darling Husband do the thank yous from his side to speed the process along.

.agreed with PPs!  Send them, and don’t worry if you think they are ‘late’.  People will only talk crap if they don’t get one at all…

I’m in the “better late than never” camp as well.  No need to mention the lateness, many people wait even longer!
