So my bridal shower is this Sunday, and I came home today to three of my first gifts from friends and family who can’t attend ….. I of course opened them 🙂 However I’ve heard mixed things, that I can’t use any of the gifts until after the wedding….is this true? If so, what do I do with the gifts in the meantime???

Psshh I got Oneida silverware and you can believe that set is unpacked and already in my drawer to use. My personal rule…if you sent the thank-you card you can use the goods.

Of course you can use them. I don’t understand why anyone would wait. There was no way that we weren’t getting married so we didn’t see the point in not using our new stuff.

I like treejewel19’s rule! Enjoy your gifts!

@Treejewel19: Agree with the rule, with one exception, if you haven’t sent the thank you you should write something awesome about the use of it in the thank you immediately upon use.
Ex. Thank you so much for the crockpot, We made the best ___wahtever____ in it tonight and it was fantastic! blah blah blah…

As soon as we sent “thank you’s” we started using our gifts 😀

Heh heh heh – FI’s parents surprised us a few weeks back with a Kitchen Aid stand mixer. They told us, though, that they expected that “there was to be no premarital mixing.”
So, when I wrote them the thank-you note, I said, “We understand that you want us to refrain from premarital mixing. We will do our best to respect your wishes, although the temptation is very difficult to resist.”
