My thank you cards were delivered today. I sat down for about an hour and started writing. But it looks like I've got at least another 4-6 hours to go.
Should I wait til I finish all of them to send them out? Or just go ahead and send them out as I finish them?

    I would send them out as you go but make sure you mark that you’ve sent them out.

    Send them as you finish them but get it done asap. The sentiments don't have to be elaborate.

    I agree - keep a list as your memory will play tricks on you!

    Send them as you finish them. If anything comes up, like you get the flu, only a few will not be out. Meanwhile, as you send out bunches, you will feel like a weight has been lifted, and complete the others faster. Is hubby doing a lot of them? We sat together and worked about 1.5 hours at a time. We got them done faster than I thought. But we did thank yous after showers, and as gifts arrived before the wedding. If all your gifts came at the wedding, just set a time, do it, and come back to them in a couple days.

    Whichever that gives you convenience. But if you're really good at multitasking, I guess the answer is obvious. Smiley smile

    I think it's ok you don't send them all out at once. i actually handed people mine and others i mailed out so that was definitely staggered

    Staggering them for your sanity and to have time to do everything else in life especially as newlyweds is just fine and people will understand and if they don’t then who cares because you should be enjoying your life.

    It depends on the people in your life. For example, people "tattled" on me when an invitation for a parent showed up in one state but the invitation for their adult children didn't show up for a couple days. I can't help how long the mail takes to get places! People got VERY upset over this for some asinine reason. If you know the people you're sending them to aren't like this, you're safe

    Yes!!! Thankfully the people who were crabby didn’t end up making our less than 10 count of guests 😂
