I don’t really know what’s proper, but I did the same exact thing with Honeyfund and I also decided to send people thank you cards with photos from our honeymoon. Even if I wanted to start thanking people prior to the wedding, it was impossible due to the sheer amount of things I had to do! So maybe I’m breaking etiquette by waiting a month after the wedding to start sending cards, but I think they’ll be more personal this way. 🙂

I think you should send a thank you soon after getting the notices (since many people may not be familiar with how honeymoon registries work and may be concerned that you don’t know where the money came from – or if it even got to you!).

Maybe instead of a postcard after the honeymoon, create a slideshow to share with everyone who contributed with a special “Thank You” at the end of the slideshow. So they get double Thanked!

I would say since you have this great idea planned just to wait. Your wedding isn’t that far off and people will understand once they receive it as to why you waited until afterwards to send them out.

When I bought someone something from honeyfund, I didn’t get the thank-you card until afterwards. The couple thanked me for the jeep rental and how much fun they had. 

I love your idea of personalizing the thank-you’s, appropriate to their gift. However, I remember that when I submited my honeyfund payment, I wasn’t sure if the couple got it (and kept wondering until I got the card). So keep that in mind – if you are going to send a thank-you later, perhaps you will want to let them know that you got their gift earlier.
