I have my thankyous printed and ready to go, but just need to write a message on each of them before posting but I just cannot get motivated, I feel all 'wedding-ed' out I've read that anywhere up to 3 months is considered acceptable to get them out, but was just wondering what the average time would be from the WC gals?
It took us exactly one month to post them from our wedding day, and we hand wrote them all. So it really took about two weeks to write them all. Our family and friends really appreciated how fast we were!
Ours were sent in batches as they were done between 2 and 3 months after our wedding. I did feel bad they took that long but we were waiting on the photo to be edited, then my brother did up the stationery for us and we hand wrote them all for the 125 guests plus about 20 extra people who werent invited but still sent cards/presents. People really appreciated them and a I agree with others, it's better to send them late than not at all. People understand that it's a busy and exhausting time and usually don't mind so long as they eventually get it.
ok well seeing how diligent everyone else was got me off my bum and I got them out within about 6 weeks. I had postcards printed through vistaprint with just "thankyou" and our monogram on the back. Same as you mandamoo I wrote a message on each one. By the end I wished I'd just gotten a simple message printed on all of them! Ah well, all done now!
Ours have started going out now, they are all home made with stickers and magnets along with the card so have been a bit full on. So by the time the last one leaves it will be 5 1/2 -6 1/2 weeks which i'm pretty happy with as I had to wait to get our new printer (so glad they are just about done lol) Each one has a message printed on it which i'm changed slightly for each person (I wasn't going to hand write them as due to 5 broken wrists I can't write for long plus it looks like a 2 yrs olds scribble lol).
Most of you seem to say you felt bad if it was more than a month for you to send the thankyous...our wedding is the the 28th of May and we fly out for our honeymoon on the 31st of May. We come back back a month later 1st of July.
Do you think we should be sending out our thankyous in the 2 days before we fly out? (I dont know if we'd have time though) cos otherwise it will prob be at least another month before we send them all after honeymoon, meaning everyone is waiting 2 months or more for them is that too long?
