We are leaving at 6AM on Monday and we were planning on depositing cash/checks when we get back. If we get a lot of cash we may take some with us-but we have some set aside for that already.

We deposited money and cheques when we got back from honeymoon, as we left immediately after the wedding. Our Maid/Matron of Honor and mum took all the presents back to our house for us and mum kept hold of the cheques and cash until we got back..

Since the bank will be closed on Sunday, my parents are going to deposit everything for us on Monday morning so we will have honeymoon cash. We will just fill out a deposit ticket before we leave and give it to them.

We had my parents and my husband’s parents take all of our physical gifts home, along with the envelopes of cards/cash/checks. We deposited the checks and cash as soon as we got home from our honeymoon, so about a week and a half after the wedding. That didn’t seem like too long a period of time. People understand that.

I wouldn’t want to bring them with me either, I’d deposit them or ask a trusted person to stop by the bank and deposit them in your account (other people can deposit, just not withdraw) or hold on to them for you. Safest place is in the bank, though, right? And if you did run into any kind of emergency, the funds are there.

I hadn’t even thought of this!  Good think I’ve still got some time…  Our ATM accepts check and cash deposits, so we’d probably deposit them the day after the wedding.

We divided up the checks into his names and my names, and we divided and conquered the morning after the wedding…then we ran around like maniacs… 🙂

We areleaving the next day and won’t have time to open any gifts/cards so we will do all that when we get back.

@HappilyEverAfter54:  i don’t remember where, but some bees had issues with checks written out to her new name (before legally changing), and the bank wouldn’t let them deposit those.  I think the husband could do the ones that were addressed to both of them, but the ones that were just to her had to wait until she changed her name.
