    happycamper8:   I’m no etiquette guru, but I think it’s a good idea to send thank you notes as the gifts come in – you’re less likely to miss sending one, and it makes life easier.

    happycamper8:  Send them as soon as you get the gift. If you wait 6+ months, people will start to wonder if you even received it.

    Why don’t you send the pictures as a holiday card instead?

    Agree to send the cards as you get the gifts.  I can’t believe you’re getting gifts already!  My wedding is before yours and we haven’t sent out invitations yet…

    There are quite a few threads here on WeddingBee from brides who waited a long time for those pics to be ready for the thank-you cards, thus making their thank-you notes late.

    I would do them now.

    It is seen as self important to think that people would rather not be thanked prompty in order to get a picture of yourself.

    If they are that keen for a pic a second mailing wouldn’t be remiss.

    You should send the cards out now as gifts arrive.  Save the wedding photo for your holiday cards or something.
