Thank You Notes

Hi!
I am getting married in a little over a month and gifts are starting to arrive at my house.  I have heard too many opposite opinions about writing thank you notes as gifts come in, so I thought I would throw it out to you guys.  Do we write the thank you note right away--so the guest knows that the gift arrived--but just not use the gift until after the wedding?  Or, do I wait to write the thank you until after the wedding and not open the gift at all until after the wedding? 
Thanks so much!

    Thanks to both of you. That was my thought, but I wanted to double check.  I'll get writing!

    It's good to let the gift giver know it arrived in good condition.  Plus, the less you have to do later, the better!
