Our wedding isn’t for another month and a half, but we just received our very first wedding gift today. I was planning on getting thank you cards made from one of our wedding photos (probably a photo with a “thank you” sign, or something to that effect). When would I send them a thank you card? As soon as possible, even though the wedding hasn’t happened yet, or immediatly after the wedding? And if I send them a card now thanking them for the gift, do I send another after the wedding thanking them for their attendance?

This happened to us! I am not too sure what the etiquette is for it but…..
I sent out the thank you cards anyways! I didn’t want to forget. I will also be sending them a thank you card after attending the wedding (we are also doing the wedding picture idea) because they are flying in for the wedding and having to stay at a hotel.

I send them out right after we got gifts. Its kinda a way for people to know their gift got there! We are doing the same thing with using a picture as our thank you cards so i jut plan on using those with people’s gifts that are brought to the actual wedding venue or get in around the wedding date.
On the early invites we wrote that we were excited to see them at the wedding and thanked them for being a part of our special day. For people that were not coming to the wedding but sent a gift i just thanked them for the gift and for their support!

I think you should send one out as soon as you receive the gift. You can always send another one later using your wedding pictures thanking them for coming.

I’m in the same boat kokuu. I’m sending Thank You cards after I received the gifts. They were thoughtful enough to send them early, so I guess it goes that I should be thoughtful enough to thank them. In your case I would still send them the wedding photo thank you after the wedding 🙂

We sent thank yous right after getting the gifts. We didn’t make special thank yous after the wedding so we didn’t have to send two but you could always send a generic thanks for coming to our wedding note later.
