wedding gift thank you question

Recommended Posts

my wedding is two weeks away (from today!) and we've started receiving wedding gifts. my shower was three weeks ago and i just sent the thank yous for those last week. so my question is, should i be sending thank yous as i get wedding gifts? or should i wait until after the wedding?

 

i don't really want to send back-to-back thank you cards because i feel like they're going to say the same thing.. but is it rude if i wait until after the wedding? i don't want anyone to think i'm ignoring their gift...

Send them ASAP. It will be easier for you to remember things, and it's nicer.

 

After all, the people who gave you the gifts GAVE them to you back to back.

I also wrote mine right away. You will be overwhelmed with thank you cards after the wedding- so it's nice to get a few done and mailed out now.

Definitely write the thanks you's as you get the gifts. This way people know that you've received it and they aren't left wondering.

I would say if you are concerned about sending them back to back, go ahead and write them now, and send them later, right after the wedding.

 

You will be overwhelmed with notes to write, so you need to try and stay ahead of the game!

Katrina,

 

I just had my shower this weekend and am still getting gifts in the mail, with the wedding next weekend.

I'm going to wait to send Thank yous until after we get back from the wedding, that way I can t hank everyone for the gifts, as well as the ones who came to the wedding & gave gifts.

I figure if I do it all at once, my head will be screwed on straight and I will forget less.

So right now I have a list with all the names written down of who gave me a gift and what it was and at the wedding, I will write down who came to send a Thank you to them for that.

:)

 

AH! You are getting close, girl! :)

I always send thank you's as soon as i get a gift - i think it shows the gift giver a bit of appreciation.

 

i know that ettitquite says you have up '1 year' but honestly IMHO i think it is rude not to send a thank you within 2 weeks of getting a gift.

 

my shower was sunday and i mailed all of my thank you cards wednesday.

 

it doesn't matter if it says the same thing no body saves them KWIM?

Alyssa, I've actually heard that proper etiquette is that you have 3 months to send it out. Honestly, even if I received a thank you 3 months later, I don't think I'd like that.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
