Ok – so I am fullheartedly 100% here to say, “Hello. My name is Keri and and I am a procrastinator”.
Ok, so our wedding was in June. That was 5 months and 2 weeks ago. I JUST put our thank you cards in the mail. Literally 5 minutes ago. I’ve had the photo/thank you cards printed for about 3 months now, just haven’t sent them. I hand-wrote all the envelopes and dangit, stamps are expensive when you’re mailing out a lot of cards!
Anyways…I’m just curious – when did you send yours?

We’re almost done with ours and i t’s not quite 3 months…my goal is to get them sent out by the end of the month.

We only took a mini moon and so I had a bit of time before heading back to work, so I did them then. I sent them out 2 weeks after the wedding—but I’m kinda of an OCD/prompt/typeA freak 🙂

we had to wait until our professional photos came back to have our photos printed on the thankyou cards – we did moo.com greeting cards for them. and sent them out about 2.5-3 months after the wedding. and i have one more left – we just got another gift!
heres what ours looked like (we had 4 different poses with the parasol) – i think its worth the wait:

Mine were out about 3 weeks after the wedding. I just wanted to get them written and get it over-with (like pulling off a band-aid).
Plus I didn’t want to let it go on for months and have people think I was rude when I’d see them (and having them think “Where’s my Thank You??”).

I got married the same weekend you did…and I think I got mine out in August. We had to wait for our pro pics to get back, then wait for the cards to be printed. I felt like our 2 month timeline was decent. But we STILL had my Mother-In-Law say something to me about not having them out yet. STFU, I’m working on it!

besides 1 gift that we JUST got, they were all sent less than a month after the wedding, but actually most got sent even before the wedding (all of them for the gifts we got beforehand). i was starting grad school about a month after the wedding, and so i wanted to get them done before!

@JuneBride_26June2010: Date twin! I got about 95% of mine done in August/September, but there are still a handful I have yet to send. And I’ve been feeling like an a$$hole. So it makes me feel better knowing at least one other June bride hasn’t finished hers yet either.

spaganya Love the parasol! We were going to do that, but we already bought photo-insert Christmas cards last year on clearance at Hallmark, and decided we’d be sending out wedding photos in our Christmas cards, and thank you notes would be going out around the same time, so we stuck to plain thank you notes. But great job!

Mine were out within 6 weeks of the wedding and most of that time was waiting for the pro pics to come in… and then the cards to be printed and shipped to me. Once I actually had the cards we banged them out within a week. To be honest I was feeling pretty terrible that it took as long as it did.

@spaganya: So pretty!
All but two of mine are written, just have to address some others and get them out the door, 60% of them have gone out, our three month mark is our absolute deadline! I was bummed that I couldn’t do photo thank you cards, after reading on the bee about how it’s more common to have them out within 2 months I freaked and got started. I still don’t have my photos yet, hopefully early next week is what my photog said.

i LOVE the pic!!! I made ours in photoshop from our pro-pics as well. I’ve had them sitting around for 3 months, I just haven’t actually sent them out – again, didn’t want to write out the envelopes and buy the stamps. i suck. lol.
at least they ARE out though! I have a friend here at work, she got married last YEAR as in 2009 (May, I believe?) and NEVER sent hers out! My bro and SIL never sent any out either, and they got married in 2005!

I did ours just after the 3 month mark. I actually ended up doing them in two batches because we ran out of stamps
