We opened gifts as we received them so we could send thank you notes but didn’t use any until after the wedding.

Yep, open and write thank yous as you get them. Otherwise people tend to get worried that you haven’t received what they sent.

Agreed. You need to open them now, and send your thank you notes immediately. Besides letting the sender know the gift arrived safely, it is one less note to send later.

Unwrap them now and send thank you notes immediately. You aren’t supposed to actually use them until after the wedding since etiquette also obligates you to return all gifts if a wedding is called off or does not happen for some reason. Many couples are willing to take that chance, LOL.
