    Honestly – I wouldn’t wait any longer to get the custom cards done – unless you are SURE you can get them out ASAP.  I think a generic thank you would be fine.  Target has some beautiful letter press type ones for super cheap ($12.99 for 50!)

    Writing them is going to take time and who knows what other life events will pop up.

    I wouldn’t waste any more time in getting them done.  You can always send photos/CD later!  Or with holiday cards, etc.

    I’d say send them ASAP, I definitely notice when I don’t get timely Thank Yous. I’m sure a few people would like pics or disks but most just want some acknowledgment.

    I say you have passed the point of guests appreciating pictures or CD’s.

    All the excuses in the world aside, I would encourage you to get the thank-you notes out asap.

    Your guests have waited long enough for a simple courtesy.

    I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure the etiquette rules say a year at most. However, I also notice when thank yous are not sent. I received a thank you card in January from a July wedding and I thought that was late. But I’m pretty sure anything after a year is frowned upon.

    As the OP said, you should work on it asap! You can get cheap thank you cards pretty much anywhere, hire your Darling Husband, grab a bottle of wine, share the pile of work and stay at your table until you are done.

    Send them ASAP. Since its been almost a year since your wedding people wont be as interested in receiving a thank you with a wedding picture (sad to say :-()
