Sending Post Wedding Thank You Cards - DONT FORGET

You've spent months planning your big day.....lots of time making things or having things made for the event and now the day has finally come and gone.  You opened all your gifts, spent or saved all your cash and giftcards and now its time to thank everyone.  Sadly, some people never end up sending out thank you cards which I think is pretty bad.  I mean all these people have taken time out of their lives, booked flights, paid for hotel rooms, and gave you a gift and you cant even send a thank you card?

Don't get me wrong, I totally understand how it is after the wedding is over.  You are happy and relieved that all the planning and getting things together is done and you may not "feel" like doing them right away which is fine. But please make sure you dont forget to send thank you cards. Some people actually write them out before the wedding.  Of course they don't write out the entire card but they address the envelopes and stuff. If you have time to do that, thats great!

Wedding etiquette states you should send them anywhere from 3 to 6 months after your wedding date.  Different people say different time frames.  How long you choose to wait to send them is up to you, just dont wait too long.  And trust me, people really appreciate getting them and they also remember when they don't get them!
