yes, you send them out after the shower.  The cards don’t have to match anything else.  People usually use that ones that come 25/50 to a box.

I’d send them out right away.

It’s so much easier if you do them right away. Not only are so still so thrilled wth the gifts that you are able to gush effortlessly, but it will also lessen your workload later.

Use any thank you notes you like. Some brides use notes in their color scheme, but others deliberately use something else as they want their colors to be a surprise.

I sent my thank you cards for each shower within a week of the actual event. I just used pretty thank you cards I found at local stores and tried to match the theme of the shower (just because). I wouldn’t wait until after the wedding you will have enough to do, might as well get these out of the way now.

I just found DIY Alice in Wonderland printables online to go with my Mad Hatter shower theme. So easy to just print on cardstock and I think the guests will get a kick out of the continuation of the theme! I definitely recommend going that route if you are so inclined!! 🙂

I would say send them within 2 weeks (the 3 month thing is for the wedding when you have 100 to write). I just chose really pretty thank yous, they didn’t match my wedding invites or anything.

My thank yous were “shower themed” but only in the sense that they had umbrellas on them.

I ordered photo thank you notes using a pic from our engagement session for my shower.  (For the wedding, we’re using notes that coordinate with our invitation suite.)  I was super excited to have another use for our e-pics!
