We recommend sending out thank you cards within a 3-month time span, from the day of your wedding. However, if you have been given a gift before the wedding day, a thank you card should be sent within 2 - 3 weeks of receiving it. Think about including the task of sending out thank you cards as a part of your wedding planning process; this will help you stay organized and on top of it!

When ordering your wedding invitations a good idea would be to also include thank you cards as well so that you will be prepared. Once you have the cards, help organize yourselves, by addressing the thank you cards with the name of the guests who will be attending the wedding as soon as you begin receiving their response cards. If you have a large amount of ‰"thank you‰" cards to send, try to break up the list of writing them by doing one batch at a time each day. Also, be sure to include your partner in on the fun by dividing up the task and having the bride write to her friends and family and the groom to his.
