I’m fairly new to the Bee but I’ve posted a handful of times. I have a question about Thank You notes, we have started to receive gifts in the mail for our wedding in August. I’m wondering if we should send the Thank You notes as we receive gifts now or after the wedding when we have received all of our gifts? Thanks for your help!

I would send them as you receive them. That way you have one less to do later and the person sending it knows that you got it and like it.

Yes, send them before. Like tksjewelry said it is a good way for the person to know youve gotten their gift. In addition, you are going to have so many to do after the wedding that one fewer will be great – you will have no desire to do them after the wedding!

Thank you both! Now off to buy some Thank You notes 🙂

My brother’s MIL had this idea that my mom is adopting for us… We are waiting to send official TY’s until after the wedding. We will write them as we receive the gifts, but then after the wedding, my mom will add a wedding picture of the two of us to the envelope with a note saying we wrote it earlier but wanted to wait to send the TY until we had a picture to send along.

I would send thank you notes right after receiving gifts. That way people know you received them and you don’t accidentally forget who gave you gifts.

I say send them as you receive them too.
I went to 8 weddings last year, and only received a Thank You for half of them. It’s weird, but as a guest, I do remember those things!
