    @squeak35:  I love getting thank you’s that have a professional wedding pic on them!!  I think it’s such a fun idea.

    I got the last ones mailed out exactly one month after our wedding. We did all the check ones first (I have a thing about cashing a check before sending the thank you, and I also have a thing about making people wait for me to cash their check, so that did me over double and I had to get them out). Then I moved to all the cash thank yous (since they were phrased pretty similarly). By  2.5 weeks out, I’d finished my side of the thank yous, and then Mr.ND paid me (yes, actually, he hates writing cards that much) to do his, and they went out about a week ago.

    Now I’ve got to write a few more for late cards/gifts that we’re getting, and tracking down chagne of address notifications we got with returend cards. I’m so glad I got them done before finals and bar prep, though, because I hated having them hanging over my head. Grab a bottle of wine, a big table, and crank them out. I liked doing ALL of our addressing/return addressing first, then filling the cards in at a later time. It made it feel like less work and I didn’t have to worry about ink smudging.

    My goal is to have them all sent out by the end of this month, so it will be within 1 month of our wedding.  Addressing a batch of 13 right now….

    Our thank you cards were sent out 9 days after the wedding.  It was such a feeling of relief getting them done quickly and not having to worry about it!
