So, I have a few questions regarding Thank You notes.
I may or may not have a shower (I live in Colorado and am not sure if I’ll get to go back home). If I do have a shower I want to send thank you notes right after. BUT I also wanted to send Thank you cards after the wedding using wedding pictures. Most of the people at our shower won’t be able to make it to the wedding so I wanted to send them a card with pictures. Can I wait until after the wedding to send thank you’s to everyone using the same card? Or should I send blank thank you’s for the shower gifts (that would go out before the wedding) and wedding thank you cards to anyone who brings a gift to the actual wedding?

How far away is your shower from your wedding? I think thank you notes for showers should go out no later than two weeks following. So I would probably just send a thank you for the shower, and then a separate thank you to your wedding guests.

I agree with PP the shower thank you’s should go out soon so don’t hold them off to use pictures send right after the event, you can always send them the picture later if you would like.

Send the shower thank yous right away without pictures. Enough to do with the wedding thank yous. Get the BS ones out of the way!

Great! thanks everyone. The shower will most likely be the first weekend of December (wedding on the 30th) so not too far apart. I may send anyone who gave a shower gift a thank you after the wedding with the pictures just saying again how we missed them but appreciate their gift and seeing them before the wedding. Ask me this again in December and I may be SO done with it that I change my mind! haha But I love thank you cards. I send them for EVERYTHING!!!
Thanks again ladies.

just to clarify–i would send them a thank you after the shower and then another card with the wedding pics.
