I have a quick etiquite question. My best friend is getting married next summer and I am the matron of honor. She is just setting up her registry and I know what I want to get her as a wedding present and it is on sale. She mentioned to me (after I had picked it out) that it is the one present she really wants and hopes that they get it before Christmas, otherwise they will break down and get it themselves. Is it okay if I buy it and send it now– 9 months before the wedding?
I also know you aren’t supposed to use your wedding gifts before the wedding, but she will and I am cool with it.

If it were me I would feel guilty not having a gift to give closer to the wedding even though technically it’s a wedding gift. Let her get it herself, in 9 months you can come up with a better idea.

@Pollywog: If it is already on her registry you can get it now, & she should see on the registry it has been purchased. IMO nine months is very early for a wedding gift, is there anything else you might want to give later?
On second thought, is it something you could give as a Christmas present? It seems too early for wedding gift.

I say go for it. I’ve done this before because I was afraid that I would forget later and be late. I was more concerned about forgetting. Plus you know she wants it and that it’ll be appreciated.
