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.

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.
