I opened mine.  If they sent it, I think they want you to enjoy it – I don’t think you have to wait until the wedding.  Plus, it was nice to get those thank-you cards out of the way early.  Maybe you’re supposed to wait…but I say go for it!

You can open it, but its bad luck to use wedding gifts before the wedding. 

We got our first wedding present in the mail a couple of weeks ago (we’re getting married in July and I was aquealing with delight)!!

@shannon – it was a miracle if i could wait even 5 minutes after I got home from work if i found a package, let alone wait until my Fiance got home, so waiting til the shower or wedding was completely out of the question. OPEN THOSE PRESENTS haha.

Open Open Open ๐Ÿ™‚  Then get started on those thank you notes.  You will be happy that you did.

I don’t know that it is bad luck to open the gift, but I have read that if one were to cancel the wedding, all gifts (shower and otherwise) would need to be returned. So Fiance and I are opening gifts, squealing with delight (okay, that’s just me not FI), keeping a record of gifts, and writing thank you notes. But then the gift gets stacked on our dining room table to be used after the wedding.

I would open it now and send a thank you.  That way you don’t have to keep track of it to thank them later.

I think you only have to open the things from the shower at the shower.  Honestly, I couldn’t watch someone open presents for too long anyway.

All of our gifts are being delivered to my office.  We received one yesterday and I texted Fiance to tell him we got something and I would bring it home for us to open together.  He couldn’t stand not knowing what it was, so he called me and I opened it with him on the phone!  Now I can’t tell him during the day if we have one, I have to keep it to myself and haul them home so we can open them together which is not near as much fun! 

Presents are my favorite part of wedding planning!  OPEN YOURS NOW!!

I think if I sent a gift and never heard back from the bride and groom I’d be a little disappointed. I’d want them to be super excited to open it. Open it, guilt free!

And I hear you on the showers!
