I personally would do it ASAP. Checks can be tricky because some people don’t watch their balances very well, or keep track of it, or forget they wrote the check so they don’t have the money available when you try to deposit the check. It’s embarassing for both people involved when that happens I think. It’s generally considered rude I think to not deposit checks right away for this reason, but maybe for some reason weddings are different

Yes, I think you should go ahead and depost.  Both for the reasons specified above, and to avoid accidentally losing one.  I don’t think people will keep tabs on when you deposited them anyway.

I’d make sure the ‘thank you’ note arrives beofre you deposit the check, though.

would you send a thank you for the check right away if the person is attending the wedding or would you wait until after the wedding to send it?

Send a thank you note based on when you receive the gift. It’s okay to get a thank you before the wedding.

Cash it and send the thank you right away.  You don’t want to accidentally mess up someone’s account by holding on to a check too long.

I agree with everyone else, cash it and send the thank you as soon as you can!

Go ahead and cash/deposit ASAP!  It’s a bad idea to keep uncashed checks lying around!

I think that some people, me being one of them, tend to get miffed if a gifted check is not cashed right away. It can easily throw off a checking act.
