1. How long after the wedding did you send them out? Assuming you went on your honeymoon pretty much right after the wedding.
2. This one is pretty specific my cousin couldn’t make it to the wedding so only his wife came and she handmade the wedding gift, so technically the gift just came from her not both of them and since he wasn’t able to make it at all the thank you card goes to just her and not Mr & Mrs..right?

1. Since we had a Destination Wedding, most gifts were mailed to FI’s apartment prior to the wedding. We sent thank-you cards out as gifts came in.
2. Personally, I’d write the card to both of them. I would see it a kind gesture towards your cousin, since he wasn’t able to make it. It’s possible that the wife made the gift, but that they decided together what to give you as a couple… unless the “to/from” tag only had her name.

1. I went on my honeymoon right after the wedding (and had the shower the day before the wedding so all those thank yous had to be written after returning from the honeymoon too) and mine will be sent by 2 months post-wedding. I think 3 months is the max that is reasonable.
2. I’d still send the thank you to both of them. Yes – she made it but they are a couple and the gift is still technically from both of them.

I would still send the thank you card to both of them. I usually make gifts as well and if they are for people that are dircetly connected to Fiance and not really me Fiance pays for all the supplies. Like usually for baby shower I make them a baby quilt and fi pays for all the fabric ect. And we always say the gift is from both of us even though I was the one who made it and usually for things like baby showers the only one who attends.

1. I personally think that within two months, the thank-you cards should be sent… to a maximum of 3 months, if needed.
2. I would send the thank-you to both of them in this case because your cousin would have been there with his wife if he could have.

1. I’d aim for 2 weeks after returning from the honeymoon.
2. My instinct would be to send it to just her, but I guess adding his name to the card can’t hurt, right? If there was a card, was it signed from both of them? That’d be the most obvious way to solve it.

Thanks guys! No there was no card but yeah I guess it should be both because they are married and because he is my cousin. I just wasn’t sure how to word it on the card lol.

1. For gifts received before wedding, thank you cards were sent as they arrived. FOr gifts recveived at wedding, thank you cards were sent within a month.
2. I would address card to them both.

I am 2 weeks out from my wedding and I have only done a few thank you cards – I am planning to have them finished between 1-2 months after the wedding. Hopefully this will allow for any straggling gifts too!
