I think anytime after you receive an invitation is ok.

I agree any time after receiving the invitation. We got a couple shortly after who could not attend. As the receiver, I kind of like that they trickled in this way and I could properly send a quick thank you! I think you’ll be fine sending the gift now! They can choose whether to open it or wait until after the wedding.

We got gifts for our Sept wedding when our save the dates went out in March!  I have actually appreciated those who sent gifts early, I’ve been able to do their thank you’s right away and I think I have more time to appreciate them!

You’re only a month out so I would definitely send them. We had people sending us gifts right when they received the invitation and we sent ours out about 2.5 months out.

As long as you don’t mind waiting a bit on the thank you note. I received a gift back in March and another in June. My thank you cards have our married name and new address on them, so I thanked them verbally but they won’t be receiving anything in writing until after the wedding.

Etiquette Snob here… lol

Officially there is NO “too soon” Timeframe on when to send someone a gift … although it is thought best not to send presents for “expected children” until the Mom-2B is about the half-way mark.

Brides & Grooms… most people send their Wedding Presents once they have the Invitation in hand.

As it is a Destination Wedding… do be sure and check that there will be someone at the address you have to receive the gift.

(Some Brides realize too late that the address on their RSVPs isn’t the best one to send a gift for them to… some Brides even go so far as to arrange for a temporary Post Office Box for Wedding Planning things / packages.  Making a Phone Call to check on details IS NEVER RUDE… WHY more people don’t do such things.. phone calls / emails in this day of all being connected is beyond me)

Anyhow… shop to your heart’s delight.

I for one LOVE shoppping for people in LOVE about to be married !!

Hope this helps,

@TGold:  Anytime after you receive the invitation is fine.  Who doesn’t love receiving a package in the mail?!?
