Early wedding gifts and thank you cards?

Recommended Posts

We have received a few cards with $ for our wedding. About half are from our guests coming to the wedding that didn't want to bring it to Mexico and the others are from those that aren't coming. I didn't anticipate getting wedding gifts from those coming, let alone people that aren't. I knew FI's parents were giving us money because they told us. I figured if we got anything I wanted to order thank you cards with some wedding photos on it. Now that we have gotten gifts I don't know if it is tacky to wait to send the thank yous, or just send something now acknowledging the gift? Mind you I'm the girl that writes thank yous the day I receive a gift so people know I am prompt with this.

You are only 2 weeks out, I say wait and get the thank you cards printed with the wedding photos like you wanted. If you can get them in the mail 4-6 weeks after the wedding you are doing good. wink.gif

yes I would say whatever you are most comfortable with - you are very close to the wedding now so it definitely would not be bad to wait until after.

Michelle,

 

this happened with us as well - i usually like to send thank you's immediately but we held off and waited until we had our custom thank you's and then wrote them all at once.

 

just start a spreadsheet with the gifts so you don't lose track :)

michelle, if you'll see any of the people at the wedding, i would give them a verbal thank you so that they know it was received.

 

then you can send your custom thank you notes when you get back!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
