- Wedding: April 2012
So, my Fiance and I had our shower at the end of January (it was so perfect!) and because I feel like it is super important, I got out all of the thank you’s by the Wednesday following – well all except a couple. A group of our friends went in on a gift together – they gave us a beautiful wine decanter off of our registry with a card that contained a note that said that there was more to come – but shipping had been delayed. I felt like we should wait until we got the rest of the gift before sending the thank you’s to them so that I could acknowledge we had received it and thank them appropriately, but now that it has been almost a month I am starting to feel really badly that I haven’t sent them a thank you yet. (we haven’t yet received the other gift, though at this point I am thinking maybe it isn’t coming? —is that bad to think? maybe it got lost in the mail? i don’t know) I had hoped to send them their thank yous before sending out the invites, but I sent those this past weekend, which is making me feel even weirder – I just hate that they might think I wasn’t going to send them a thank you card – or what if they think the gift arrived at our house. I know I can’t ask them about it, but what should I do about the thank you? Send one now that just thanks them for the gift we received and then send another one if we get the other gift? Wait a bit longer? Send a vague thank you?
Not totally sure where the etiquette books stand on this one and I just want to make sure that I thank these amazing women!
