I would send out the ones you have done and scrap the rest. Etiquette be damned. If anyone says anything about it, hopefully someone will put them in their place.

I’m so sorry for your loss. People who would wonder where their thank you card is after grieving the loss of your father with you aren’t worth your energy. 

Please try to be kinder to yourself ❤️

You’re good.  I lost my father a few years ago before our wedding. It’s very hard. I’m so sorry for your loss. No one should wonder why they weren’t sent they know.

If it’s important to you to finish, can’t your husband write them?

saratiara2 :  This!  In fact, the husband probably could have taken this over months ago.

Bee,  I’m sorry for your loss.  I think you guys should still complete your thank you cards and send them out.  People still gifted you something.  They will understand the delay and it will be out your mind forever then.

I second (third?) your husband finishing them off. If you don’t send them I’m sure everyone would understand, but if you already have a chunk completed you may as well use them, surely your husband could do the rest.

I think thank you cards are outdated anyways. Scrap em. If it’s important to you that they go out, get your husband to do them, it’s not as if they’re solely your responsibility.

I am so sorry for your loss. Whilst I am sure your guests will understand I agree that your husband should finish them off.
