Q: We have started to receive wedding gifts and would like to wait until after we have a wedding photo to customize the thank you notes that we will be sending out. Is it alright to wait until we have our custom cards or should we send thank you notes as gifts are received?
A: The general rule is that all thank you notes should be written within three months of receiving the gift. Ideally, a response should be written upon receipt of the gift; however, I understand wanting to have custom cards made. In that case, as long as you are within a reasonable time frame, I think your guests will understand.
