(Closed) Send thank you notes before the wedding?

    Absolutely! They will be wondering if you got it.

    No way! It gives the appearance that you are using gifts before the wedding.

    You're so close to the wedding- just wait and send them all on the same cards.

    Send notes to those who aren't attending now, but wait on those who are attending.

    We sent all our thank yous right away because we didn’t want to forget about them.  We didn’t get photo thank yous made because it would have taken too much time.  I would use the shower thank yous and if you want to send these guests a photo thank you later to thank them for coming to the wedding, that would be fine.

    Oooh, nevermind – i picked SEND IT, but now that i see that you have special photo cards, i’d drop them a quick email letting them know you received it and a thank you, but send them an OFFICIAL one later, too.

    I would just send the notes as the gifts come in.  That way the people know you got it, and you’ll have less work after the wedding!

    I’ve been sending them as we’ve received gifts in the mail.

    I think you are close enough to your wedding that you can just wait. I think the guest who couldn’t make it might enjoy seeing photo cards. Also, don’t you technically have 6 months from the date of your wedding to send thank you notes. So even if you count that time from when you received the gifts you can still send them out in enough time.

    You can always send another letter/card afterwards with the picture.  But I think it would be a good idea to send a note, or at least call and thank them and tell them that they will be missed (the ones not attending)

    Def write them as the gifts come in.. leave your less work to do after the wedding 🙂 Plus the gift givers will appreciate knowing you received the gift. If they don’t hear anything they will wonder.. “hmm did the gift get to them” “Did it get lost?”

    I say def write one asap after you get gift 🙂
