The present I want to get my friend for her wedding has to be shipped. It won’t arrive until a week after her wedding. Is that okay? Should I skip this gift and get her something that will be “on time?” Also, should I have it shipped to me or her? I am confused about what to do. What do you think?

@rljohnso14: i would have it shipped to her and then at the weddding give her a card with a little note saying that her present is on its way to her house.

@cr6zy: That’s a good idea. That wouldn’t be tacky to mention the gift in the card?

@cr6zy: totally agree, and i dont think it would be tacky at all!

Mentioning in the card that the gift is on its way is the opposite of tacky: it’s useful for the bride and groom to know! That way when they’re writing thank you cards, they know that you’ve gotten them more than just a card.

According to my very “Posh” Gay Uncle: Wedding guests have up until 1 year after your wedding to get you a gift.
I’ve never heard this but he tells me it everyday so I think you’re safe.

I think couple always figure that some gifts will come after the wedding. I did this for a friend who was out of state and I was not able to go to the wedding. I sent her a gift a week or two after the wedding.
