I just wanted to get everyone’s opinion on when to say thank you for pledges to our honeyfund. Some people will bring a check to wedding, others have already mailed them, some have deposited into our paypal etc. Should we wait until after the wedding, or as we get them?
Thanks a ton for the help!!

I’d send a quick thank you immediately when you get the gift, then later send a pic from your honeymoon with a more detailed thank you to them.

I agree. I always like to know when people receive the gift I send. Otherwise I worry they never received it…

i think it depends how you have it set up. Are they gifting money towards the overall cost of your honeymoon? If so, then you might as well send a thank you as soon as you receive it. In my case, i set it up so that they purchased activities and stuff for us to do on our honeymoon. so i waited until we got from our DW/honeymoon and sent the thank you note including a line about how much we enjoyed the activity they paid for or contributed towards.
ETA: after reading the replies above mine, i just remembered that i sent a thank you email as soon as i received the contribution to acknowledge that i did in fact receive it. Then when i did all my thank yous after the wedding, i sent the formal card in the mail with a picture.

@tiffy bear: great idea!
@jody23: I agree that it is more courteous to let them know you’ve received it!
@purpleunicorn: We have it set up similarly where people contribute to individual activities, but some have also contributed towards our airfare etc. So I think I will incorporate both 🙂
Thanks so much gals!
