So I totally screwed up and forgot about writing my shower thank you notes. I’ve been forgetting everything lately, I went out and bought thank you notes and had everything together for us to get those taken care of and planned on doing them one weekend. Well we ended up going out of town and my fiance put all the thank you note stuff away in his desk drawer. Fast forward to 3am this morning when I woke up in a panic suddenly remembering the thank you notes that we never sent!!! I feel so bad now, it’s been over a month since the shower, we sent out the wedding invitations last week! So here’s my dilemma…ettiquette is within 2 weeks… Should I send the thank you notes out now? Or someone mentioned I could thank them for the shower gift with the wedding thank you note, I don’t know about that though? Advice??

Send them out right away. All will be well :). most people are reasonable and understanding.

nellebelle6: Write them and send them now. It would be lazy and rude to wait and send them along with the wedding gift thank-you notes.

If it makes you feel better, I didn’t receive a thank you note from the couple whose bridal shower and wedding that I attended, where I provided them both with a generous gift. It’s almost a year later and still nothing, so I’ve written it off. If you’re thinking about this and are feeling concerned, then you’re already miles ahead in fixing the situation and making your guests feel appreciated! People will still be happy to receive the cards, even a month or two later 🙂

Send them immediately. You’ll be fine. Just don’t wait.

Send them now. Thank yous are due as you receive gifts. Waiting to do all at once is bad advice, and rude. People went out of their way to buy you a gift and it only takes a few moments to write a note.

Send them now. Like, today.

I’m not sure why it would be any better to wait another month to send them and then be lazy by sending one note for two gifts.
Write them today and get them out ASAP.
