    Hello Everyone!

    So we are starting to receive some gifts (YAY) mostly from guests who are unable to attend. Our wedding isnt until May so I wasnt sure what the proper etiquette was in terms of official "Thank yous"

    I was thinking to send informal (maybe via email) thank you immediately so they know we got it, and I talk to these people pretty regularly so it would be weierd not to mention anything. Then after the wedding send the real more formal thank yous.

    What do you ladies think?

      I would go ahead and send a Thank-You note now. It will be one less you have to do when you get back. Then, You might have some photo cards or something printed after the wedding and send those out people who were unable to attend.

        Like my overly formal mother always says: " Send a thank you immediatly upon recieving the gift"

        :)

              I'm so glad I found this thread! I am having the same issue! We were planning on getting photo thank you card printed after the wedding, but clearly we'll need them sooner than that! I'm thinking we might get some printed with our engagement pictures on them instead.

                I've always heard the rule that for gifts you receive before the wedding you have 2 weeks to mail a thank you. Gifts received at or after the wedding you get up to 4 weeks to get them out. HTH!

                    Whew! I was wondering the same thing as we've received a gift already! (way too early in my opinion) but anyway, glad to find this thread!
