Be sure to send an invite if you've sent a save the date: The save the date is a courteous heads_up about your wedding date, but it is not an invitation. Keep careful track of who you send save the dates to and make sure they all receive an invitation. I have heard a lot couples tell me that their invitation quantity is going down after they receive responses to the save the date, because some people can't attend. Nothing is more confusing or heartbreaking than receiving a save the date and then never receiving an official invitation. Also, make sure to send an invitation to guests that cannot attend. Not sending an invitation implies the guest is no longer invited.
If it slips your mind and you forget to send some thank_you notes, you should still send them no matter how many months have passed. Better late than never! Traditionally, wedding thank_you notes are written in blue or black ink on folded ivory or white notepaper.
