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.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
