So my bridal shower was this past weekend and I did receive gifts from a few of the guest. My question is, when am I supposed to send out the thank you cards for those gifts? My wedding is just over 2 weeks away and I am sure that there will be gifts coming inbetween now and then and definitely at and after the wedding. Do I send the bridal shower thank you now or just wait and do all the thank yous together after the wedding?

Sent thank-yous for the bridal shower now, as bridal shower gifts are given separate from wedding gifts. Also, if you get any wedding gifts between now and the wedding, feel free to start sending thank-yous for those, too! After the wedding, you’ll be happy that you got a few out of the way. 😉

Now is good. My shower was on a Saturday and I mailed mine out the following Wednesday — my mom called on Tuesday to remind me because my cousin had her shower on a Sunday and sent hers out the next day.

You should do them now. I think you should send them as you go, it’s rude to let them backlog.

I’m gonna say the opposite. You might as well do all the thank you’d at once. Maybe it’s just because I’m a fellow bride, but I sure as hell wouldn’t expect a thank you from you with your wedding so close. You’re obviously busy!

I would do them now and have them out before the wedding.

Definitely now. Wedding thank you’s are a completely separate thing. Take an hour to write thank you’s for all the shower gifts- you can do all others after the wedding.

@MrsDiddles: I would do the shower thank-you notes now. Otherwise, you are going to face a daunting task of sending them along with your wedding thank-you notes.

I’m planning on sending a thank you immediately after receiving any gift. That’s what I do with any other gift outside of the wedding so I don’t plan on changing it. That being said, if I receive gifts within a week or so of the wedding (or whenever I become too frazzled with everything left to do) they’ll be waiting until after the honeymoon for their thank yous!

Thank you notes should be sent as soon as possible after the shower.
They are 100% separate from wedding notes.
