We're about 1.5 months out from the wedding and are starting to get quite the pile of wedding gifts. Is the etiquette to not use them until after the wedding? It seems so silly and I'm dying to get rid of all our terrible pots and pans and reorganize the kitchen. But I shouldn't, right? Until afterwards? And until then I just have this messy pile of giant boxes sitting in the corner of my dining room?
(True confessions: I put out the fancy glass cake stand my bestie sent me. I haven't put anything in it. It's just sitting on the table, calling for donuts. It makes me happy everytime I walk into the dining room.)
