Wedding Details: Include Wedding Thank Yous With Wedding Favors?

Q: I am giving silver picture frames as wedding favors, and I would like to include a personalized wedding thank you card inside each to save on postage. Is this okay, or should I wait and send them after the honeymoon?

A: The problem is that some of the guests at the wedding may not have given a gift by the wedding date (they have a year after your wedding day to send one), and it might make them feel awkward or uncomfortable if you give guests thank-you notes when they haven't given you a gift. It's a nice thought, but you should really send thank-you notes to all your guests through the mail. It's the most courteous way, and it will also help you avoid confusion later.

Wedding Thank-You Notes: Late Wedding Thank You Notes?

We had a small wedding and didn't invite many people. I didn't send wedding invitations to people I knew wouldn't make the trip because I didn't want them to feel obligated to send a wedding gift. My friend's mother made a comment to her about not receiving an invitation. She sent us a gift, and I was embarrassed, so I kept procrastinating on sending a wedding thank you note. Now it's two years later and I still haven't sent one! How do I go about sending a late wedding thank you?
