We have started recieving RSVP’s and guets who are unable to attend have been sending very generous checks. My plan was to send a thank you card with a photograph from our wedding after the wedding to everyone who sent gifts or attended. Is it ok to wait unil after the wedding because my mother in law asked if I sent a thank you card and I never planned on sending anything until we were past the wedding. Is this ok???

I suggest you send the thank you notes as soon as you receivet he gift for two reasons. One, the giver will be reassured that you did in fact receive the gift. Two, you will have less work to do after the wedding.

Agree with PP. You could still send a note and a photo after the wedding if you wish.

I sent a thank you note as soon as I started receiving checks in the mail with declined RSVPs. I plan to send a nice wedding picture after the wedding as well for those who did not attend with a small note letting them know although they could not attend we were still thinking of them on our big day.

I would send those Thank Yous earlier rather than later — just so the senders know their gifts were received.

Send thank you notes as you receive gifts. A thank you note is meant to be an acknowledgement that you have received a gift, not to share a photo. While it’s always a nice gesture to include photo, it shouldn’t be done at the expense of expressing your gratitude in a timely fashion. If you’re dying to send out your wedding photo, just use it for your holiday card.

louisianablue: +1000. OP, send thank you notes for all gifts as soon as you get them. Your guests want to know that you received them. Save the photos for something else.
