From many of the elders in my family, I have heard 6 months. On some internet blogs and posts, I have heard up to one year!? I thought you were supposed to be eating the top of your wedding cake on your one year anniversary!? Who to believe? According to the Huffington Post in their article, "Wedding Etiquette Mistakes You Didn't Know You Were Making,":
"You don’t have a year to send out thank-you cards. You have three months, tops. And for gifts sent before the wedding, try to get your thank-yous out within two weeks of receiving the gift."
OH CRAP! I am already over the three month deadline! How will people know that I am actually grateful and thankful? (Note: I am actually in the process of hand-writing the notes as well, since the pre-printed message is apparently "passé" as well)
How long did it take you and your beloved to send out Thank-You notes? Did you write personalized letters or did you have something pre-printed?
