Timeline on Gratitude

Do you know what the time limit is on a wedding gift thank you note?  Yes, there's a best before date on these things.

The famous Emily Post, now 'The Emily Post Institute' says the following:

When should notes be written?
Contrary to popular myth, the happy couple does not have a year’s grace period in which to write their notes.  All thank-you notes should be written within three months of the receipt of the gift. Ideally, a response should be written on the day you receive a wedding gift. If that’s not possible, set a daily goal. It’s a lot easier to write three or four notes a day than to have to write a hundred notes in a month after the wedding!

Did you ever think of all these questions about the Wedding Thank You Notes?

The Hallmark Site has many ideas for thank you cards and messages.  I particularly enjoyed their "Warm Closings".  Here they are:
A warm closing is like the bow on top of your thank-you message. Choose one of ours or create your own.
