How is everyone doing on thank you cards?

I finished writing up thank you cards today. There's one that still needs an address. And there's a few we are planning on handing out instead of mailing. But they are written up and in envelopes. It feels so good to have them done and out of the way! Definitely do them sooner, rather than later.

    Nicely done Heidi! I am not looking forward to all the thank you note writing and hand cramps Smiley winking

    Hand cramps are not fun. Definitely helps to do them in batches and give yourself breaks. I had originally planning doing them all in one day. And it ended up getting split up over multiple days. I'm just glad they are done. I didn't want that final to-do hanging over me.

    DH and I took a two week honeymoon right after the wedding and still got ours out before our "one month anniversary" Smiley smile

    We had a huge guest list too - we served 380. We wrote about 250 Thank Yous.

    It was quite the job but I feel so good to have them done - DH and I both wrote a note in each one and we've had a lot of compliments for that.

    There was a bit of an incentive - I told DH that we couldn't deposit the checks until the Thank Yous were out! LOL

    Nice incentive! We didn't have anywhere near that many thank yous ... only about 40.

    We are nearly done! We have about 12 left to write out of around 60 or so thank yous. We'll have them all done before our first month anniversary on Tuesday.

    Did you match your thank you cards to your invites? I haven't ordered my thank you cards, but I was playing with the idea of having them different to the invites... you know?

    Done! Got them out 20 days after the wedding. One day short of three weeks. I was hoping for one week upon returning from our HM, but I was five days late from that goal.

    I have to write one this week for a late gift from Indonesia.

    @Tru Lowes, we went cheap on the thank you cards. Went to the store and got a pack of 25 for less than $3. Way cheaper than doing special looking ones. We figured, it's what's on the inside that matters. Smiley smile

    I will be starting mine tonight and will do a few each evening. I'm hoping to have them all done by the end of the week.

    We have written thank you notes for the gifts we have already received (our wedding is Sunday). Hoping to get them out within a month after we get back from the honeymoon though, hopefully that will still happen with the holidays soon after we get back, finishing unpacking and job interviews/starting a new job around that time.

    I actually just ordered mine (yikes) because I wanted a photo on them. They should be here by the end of the week and should only take a few hours, so I'll be right at the one month mark.

    I thought of waiting for pictures, but there's no telling when the photographer will be done with them, and I just wanted to get them out.

    Just finished mine last night. Don't judge me.

    I had them all out a month after the wedding. But we didn't honeymoon (yet) and only had 60 guests. Plus our photographer had our pics back to us in two weeks!
