When do most people send gifts?

In my experience, depending on where you live and how your family does their tradition, gifts can start now and keep coming even after the wedding.  I’d do your thank you’s as they come in and get them sent off regardless of when the wedding is because there’s nothing more tacky than not receiving a thank you for a gift you sent, regardless of the timeline the person receiving the gift has it set for.

Sounds like you didn’t have a shower because most people bring their gifts to the shower and do monetary for the wedding but that’s where I come from.

Yea, I was going to say as well that I only typically give a physical gift at a shower.

The day of the shower or the day of the wedding. We only got a few ahead of time.

I usually send a gift the week before the wedding, or order it the week before and maybe it arrives the week after.  I think a lot of people are probably kind of procrastinators like this and will think about a gift when it gets close to the wedding.
