    • Wedding: March 2014

    @MichiganGirl24:  I mailed a check for a wedding in October in December.  I have yet to mail a check for a wedding in November.  That one I’m still trying to decide the amount because I did not attend and I’m not really sure what our friendship is anymore.  Plus, I kind of figure whatever I give I’ll probably get right back in March, so I should probably stop overthinking the amount!

    Sorry for putting you inside my brain for a second there. My response is,  sending a gift a few months late is totally acceptable and preferred by most (I would guess) than no gift at all.

    We just received them for a few weeks after, but most gifts were received prior or on the day of the wedding. I’m sure they would appreciate whatever you chose to gift them, though!

    I put 3-4 months… BUT, we have friends who have said repeatedly “We have to bring over your wedding gift” a year and a half later. If we do eventually receive this, we will be delighted to receive it.

    I think your friends would be very appreciative.

    We got married on 10/19 and my grandmother gave us a gift on Christmas that was meant as a wedding present.

    I didn’t vote because we received everything prior to or at the wedding.
