Because it’s so far apart, I’d send 2 Thank You cards.

I would send one now so that they know you received it, and say you look forward to using it.

I wouldn’t worry about a post wedding Thank You necessarily (unless your guest list is small). The benefit to thanking people up front is getting the work out of the way!

For the few gifts that we received really early I called them or said thank you when either of us saw them.  That way they knew we had received it but then I waited to send the thank you until after the wedding since I wanted to include something about the day.

I would send a thank you now, and  say something like “thank you …blah blah blah… And we look forward to see you at the wedding!”

I sent all thank yous right when I got the gift. It made for a lot less work after the wedding. Like HeatherShane said, I just said that I would looking forward to seeing them at the wedding. And if they weren’t able to make it I said we’ll miss you at the wedding.

We just got our first gift a week ago! I sent the thank you note right away, because I wanted to use the gift (and felt that I should say “thank you!” first).  I will only send another thank you note if the person brings an additional gift to the wedding.  If not, there’s one thank you note down, a bunch more to go!

i think you can send one now or later, but if you wait to later, at least call or email to acknowledge you got it.  this happened to me. i sent an email to say thanks. and i will be sending out written thank yous when i print a pro pic to include.  also, you don’t have to send a thank you to someone just because they attended.  only if they give a gift (unless its a Destination Wedding of course).

We sent our thank yous as we received gifts.  It made it much easier!
