You should open them as they come. Especially if they were shipped.  Send thank yous immediately to let the giver know that the package arrived safely (i.e. not broken).  In addition, if you wait, and something ends up being broken, some places may not let you exchange it because it has been too long! It’s perfectly acceptable to open gifts ahead of time, just don’t USE them until after the wedding!

I totally agree with Mandalynn on this one…

Don’t get overwhelmed – and remember, this is a GOOD problem to have 🙂
