Thank You Note Question

So I think I know the answer to this but..... we just received our first wedding present!  Our wedding isn't until the end of July... do I send the thank you card now or wait until after the wedding? I assume wait but wanted to be 100% sure !

Re: Thank You Note Question

  • You assume incorrectly.  Send it now.  Don't use the gift until after the wedding, unless you're prepared to replace it if need be.

  • You definitely have to send the thank you note now, no two ways about it.

  • You should send the thank you now. The sooner the better, or else you'll forget it about it. I sent my thank you notes the day after my bridal shower.

    Always send the thank you note right after you receive something. Open the present and make sure it is intact and then do not use it. If you get a check before the wedding cash it but do not spend it, people need to have their check book balanced.

  • Its up to you, the sooner the better, but etiquette says 6-8 weeks after your ceremony.  I have been to two weddings this past year and got my thankyou 7-9 months after... and that to me is just rude no need to wait!
  • My mother is keeping our wedding gifts until the wedding, she's oldschool. She thinks wedding presents should be enjoyed after a wedding. Anyways our thank yous will go out right after our wedding.
