I am going to buy mine from Michaels. There are a bunch to choose from (casual to elegant) and they are pretty cheap.

We received our first gift on the weekend. Contrary to etiquette, we're already enjoying it.... its Windows 7! We couldn't wait! cheesy.gif

 

As for when we're sending out thank yous? We're going to do them after we get back from our honeymoon we decided.

Target has some really cute modern looking thank you cards. I bought some for a friend's baby shower and they had a lot of nice of choices.

 

If you want to wait until after the wedding to do photo cards, you could address the envelopes now as you receive the gifts and still send them out after the wedding - still less work!

I would write your thank you notes as you receive your gifts. Doing a ton of thank you notes at once sucks. I would just get some cute simple thank you cards or some plain cards to do them on.

as long as you don't forget to send them out within a reasonable amount of time (i personally think they should be sent within one month), then wait until the wedding.

 

don't be that couple who waits 5 months or longer to send them out that it's just embarrassing.

 

if you are afraid you are going to forget. make up an excel spread sheet and keep track of who the the gift is from, what it is, when you received it, and when you mailed them a card. it may seem tedious, but it's a great way to remember...as i'm sure you know by now...there are a million things to remember.

Thanks! I went ahead and ordered some cute cards with just our first names on them. I like the idea of the photo card AFTER the wedding announcing our marriage. I may do that. Or maybe I will just send out a photo card as a THANK YOU to those who attended the wedding. I do like the idea of getting them out of the way now. I'm getting behind on my list though and it is stressing me out a little bit (since I have so many other things to work on). So I think I will try and knock these out this weekend!

I was in the same boat but only have received checks so far, so since it was a check I cashed it now and sent out a thank you card. But for gifts I would wait till after the wedding. You could pre-write them now and include the picture once you get back and then mail them out.

I'm sending my thank yous out as I receive gifts. I don't want to be overwhelmed by having to do them all after the wedding. Becks designed some adorable cards for me, with the same design elements as the rest of my paper goods.

Hi Stephanie,

 

I just noticed you are from Houston and are getting married in SD. I was born in Houston and now live in SD! Ha! Funny. You are also getting married 1 week after me and 1 day before my bday. Just thought I had to point that out. Where in SD are you getting married?
