So after reading some of the comments to Miss Kiwi’s post on the "jinx" of opening up and using wedding presents prior to the wedding, I had a question. My wedding is one week from tomorrow (Saturday), I have recieved some gifts already. I am going to write Thank You notes to the people who sent gifts, but will not be attending the wedding right away.
However, do I send Thank You notes to those people who sent gifts, but will be there next week at the wedding?
I guess I fell weird sending a Thank You note when I know that they will be there next week.
So, can anyone help me? Can I wait until after the wedding to send the Thank You notes to those people?

I’m next Saturday too! Honestly, go ahead with the notes if you have the time. We’ve gotten about 20 gifts so far and either I write them the day I get it or wait and write 3-6 at a time.
I close out the note saying "thanks so much for thinking of us and see you on the big day!" If you want to wait until after, go ahead but why not get a few out of the way? That’s my philosphy at least. Then you can thank them in person too! 🙂 Have a great wedding!

No need at all to feel weird about sending a prompt thank you note! Your guests will think you a very thoughtful bride.
Best wishes on your marriage.

I agree – send them off I’m always very prompt with mine and would have a heard time waiting, plus it may only be a few cards – but any time saved afterwards is time to spend with your new husband! 🙂
