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!
