Send it out now. There is no reason to wait. Your aunt will want to know that you received it, and it will be much easier if you can get some done before the wedding.

I would send it now so she knows that you received it. Plus it helps to do them as they come but make sure to keep a master list of everything you got and from who! 

I don’t think people expect you to wait until after the wedding to open them anyways- especially if they are sending them so early!

I think you should send it now so she knows you received it.  I think sending it now is better than later.

I just talked with my mom this weekend who send an extended family member a gift card (for shower) and substantial check (for wedding) about 3 mos ago.  The check has not been cashed and no thank you note has arrived for either one yet.  She is now  worried that they have been stolen.  So moral of the stroy, cash checks in a timely fashion and write thank you notes like Emily Post suggests.

I called to say thank you for the gifts that came early because I will be including pictures in my thank you cards. I let the givers know that they will receive a formal thank you after the wedding because I want to send them the fancy card. They all seemed to appreciate it.
