    As you finish them

    All at once, even if it's three months after the wedding

    I’d send them out as they’re done.  No reason to keep them all together.

    I would send them out as they’re done and I would purposely write them in a way that if you know a family member is a stickler for etiquette, and then any acquaintances that you know should really receive thank you’s ASAP, do those first, and then proceed on to people like your close friends who probably wouldn’t care whether they received the thank you 3 weeks or 2 months after the wedding. I know etiquette dictates a certain time frame, but just put in your best effort to get them all out in a timely manner and you’ll be fine.

    You should send in out in groups based on people that are likely to talk to each other. You wouldnt want one aunt mention to the other how lovely the thank you card was and then the other would get offended that they hadnt received theirs.

    I like to send mine out as I finish them, UNLESS they’re in a specific group.

    For instance, I don’t want to send cards to 3 of my mom’s friends and leave one on my to do list, or to a few relatives that live in the same town. It seems like a lot of people will say, “Oh, I got so-and-so’s thank you card in the mail today, did you?” I always want the answer to be yes, so I try to group those together.
