I think it would be perfectly fine to say something like, “Thank you so much for the reminder! Darling Husband and I have been so wrapped up in our newlywed bliss!” and then work on getting them out in the next couple weeks. It’s VERY rude that she keeps reminding you, but it’s been a couple months so I can kind of see where she would feel a little irked that she hadn’t gotten a thank you yet.

Honestly she should lighten up. 1 month really isn’t long at all. I’d definitely try to get them wrapped up in the next couple weeks though.

Wow, the FB comment is over the line.

Send her like 5 thank you cards.  😛

I think most wedding etiquette sites and books say a few months is the max to send out the thank yous.  Did your friend send you the gift prior to the wedding?  Has it been more than a month since you actually received their gift and just a month since the wedding?  Or did they give you the gift at the wedding?

I have received cards back later than that.  One friend got married in April and I received the thank you card for Christmas. 

I can understand their annoyance in the thank you taking a while.  I am one of the people that sends thank yous out pretty quick (like within days) but, even if you were over the “time limit” they really shouldn’t have said something about the note.  Just ignore it.  Don’t say something back as a come back.  Just write the other notes, say something nice to them about the gift and forget about it.  You don’t have to be rude just because someone else is rude.

This woman has issues. It’s only been a month since you got married. Yes, you should get on them soon, but give me a break. I think as long as you get them out within 3 months it’s OK but the sooner the better.

What she did is very bad manners. I wouldn’t even respond, because I can’t think of anything nice to say to a comment like that 🙂 I might even just delete her comment. 

I hate FB more and more every day.
