  • Wedding: May 2010

My shower was a month before the wedding.  My Maid/Matron of Honor sent out the invites a month before the shower.

We sent out wedding invitations 2 months before the wedding, with the RSVP date a month before the wedding.

At most weddings that I’ve been to, the gifts are not opened at the reception.  The bride or the bride’s family took the wrapped gifts home.  My parents actually took our gifts home since we were leaving the next morning for our honeymoon (we stayed at a hotel).  We opened everything once we got home.  It’s much easier to keep track of who bought what that way, I’d imagine!

Gifts should not be opened in front of the guests.
