SO I just recieved some wedding gifts – I know wha they are thanks to the registry but not who they’re from – is it ok to open them now or should I wait until the wedding???? FI says now…and I have to admit, I’m not one to keep unopened presents around…..what do you think?

I would say as long as the thank you note has been written and sent, feel free to use!

I wouldn’t use them, but go ahead and open them! Check them out that they aren’t broken and you can send a TY note now if you want to get a head start.

Ok that was my next question – I was planning on doing up thank you cards that have our wedding picture on them – so that obviously won’t happen until after the wedding….do I need ot send thank you cards now too? Should I just pretend that I haven’t received gifts? ahh! so confusing 🙂
Oh and to clarify – they’re not shower gifts or anything – they’re definitely wedding gifts!

Open and send the Thank you note, but wait to use them! If you get something you like better, you can return or exchange.

I would say open them, don’t use, and send a thank you for the gift within 2 weeks of getting the gift. Then send a thank you for attending the wedding and celebrating with you after the wedding.

I don’t think it’s necessary to send one now. Some bees will tell you to ASAP. It would be a nice gesture to let them now that you’ve received the gift though. A quick thank you via phone call or email is enough for now IMHO.
I did 50/50 of TY notes for early gifts. My mom didn’t think I should even be opening them, so for the relatives who were at my sister’s wedding and got the TY card after the wedding, I didn’t bother with the early TY note. Those were also in-store pickup and not shipped. I think pickup is a little more reliable so they wouldn’t be as concerned about whether I actually received the gifts.

I would use them, I would open them though…
but then again maybe I would just leave them until after the honeymoon to unwrap.
