You may want to order the thank you cards once you have returned from Honeymoon but, at the very least, you should have your design and chosen supplier sorted out before the Big Day and need only to confirm details on your return. It is not imperative that the style of the cards matches with all the other Wedding stationery and sometimes it is nice to send something in a completely different style. A photo card with an image of the happy couple for example can do the job and act as a lovely keepsake. That said, a multi-pack from the local supermarket may not look as pretty, but it would do the job just as well and save you some cash to boot. Whatever your thoughts, just make sure that you remember to send them!
If you still think you’re likely to have some money to spare to spend on stationery (having purchased both invites, place cards and thank-you cards) then take a look at The Nice to Haves article for more info on 'save the date' cards and Orders Of Service.
