Are thank you postcards ok, rather than thank you cards? It would save a little on stamps, but I don’t want to be rude.
Today we received a wedding gift. Our wedding is one month away. The family who sent us the gift hasn’t RSVPed yet… Should I send the thank you card now, or wait until after the wedding? Wasn’t sure what would be best, especially since I don’t know if they are coming or not yet! I would think if they come that I’d want to thank them for the gift AND for coming to our wedding! But I’m also impatient and want to thank them now 😀 lol

I’m thinking of doing Thank You postcards as well. I’m going to wait until after my wedding. Our postcards will feature a wedding photo of us. I just purchased some chabby chic Thank You signs, we might do something like the photo below. I found the photo on bridalbuds.com.
We will write a personalized note on the back. This will double not only as a thank you card, but they will be able to keep a photo of us if they want.

i have always heard the rule is 3 months to send thank you cards. so in your case, since your wedding is a month away, i think you are safe to wait.
i had one person send us a gift (or rather purchase something from our online honeymoon registry) about 5 months before the wedding. she did this at the same time she RSVP’d on our website. so i replied to her RSVP (she is not coming) and thanked her for gift at the same time. i also told her we’d send her pics. so when we get pics, i will send her one with a formal thank you card – which will end up being about 6 months after the gift!
