I’m not sure about the etiquette, but won’t it feel better to get at least some of the thank you notes out of the way before the wedding?

Go ahead and send the thank you note now.  I think the whole don’t-even-open-them thing has faded out and now people would rather know that their gift was received and not lost in the mail somewhere!

Send thank you notes now.  You should acknowledge the gift as soon as you received it.  That way the sender doesn’t have to worry that the gift never made it to you.  It also gets some of the work out of the way before the wedding so you have less notes to write after the wedding : ) You aren’t supposed to use your gifts until after the wedding but opening them is completely acceptable and expected.

Especially for people who won’t be attending the wedding, I would send the thank yous now. Otherwise I think you can wait if you would like, just be sure to include a note relating to their being at your wedding (like “you looked wonderful together” or “great to see you on the dance floor”).

LOL @ “bless her heart”.. I’m a transplant to the South and I have learned that apparently you can say ANYTHING you want about someone as long as you follow it up with “bless her heart”
