I’m looking for some pre-wedding thank you help. We have been receiving a few gifts before our July 25 wedding, and I was wondering if it was alright to use our new thank you cards we had printed. They have our combined monogram on them, so my question is whether or not I should use that before the wedding?
Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks so much!

I’m not sure if this is proper etiquette, but I had a friend of mine who sent out her invites with their monogram on it. I didn’t see a problem with that and I also don’t see a problem with you sending out your thank you notes in advance with your monogram, but that’s just my opinion! If you’d rather be safe, then just wait until shortly after the wedding to send them out! You could always write them, then send them out when you get back from your honeymoon if you feel better doing that!

Hey, we are date twins! Everything I’ve read says not to use your married monogram until after the wedding. As a guest, I wouldn’t balk. Hope your planning is going well! What do you have left.

The "etiquette ladies" of the world would say that using your combined monogram prior to your wedding is inappropriate. As an alternative, you could give the senders a call to acknowledge that you received their gifts (yes, this is perfectly ok to do) and then send them formal thank you notes after the wedding.
Another reason to hold off until after the wedding: you’ll be able to thank them for coming and tell them how nice it was to see them there!

Thanks ladies! I appreciate all of the help and advice! I think I will send out thank you’s on some other stationary priory to the wedding if gifts continue to come in, and then maybe send another thank you after using the cool thank yous (i know, that sounds a bit crazy!).
Thanks for the help! You all are the best!
