    I wanted to write a note in each of my thank you’s about attending the wedding or something about it so for super early presents we received, I opened right away and then called them to say thank you.  That way they knew we got it and didn’t have to wait until after the wedding to find out.  But if you don’t care about that, then send the thank you right away.  No need to wait in my opinion.  But, if it’s somehow obvious the gift is for the shower, I would probably wait until then to open.

    I think saving all your thank yous until after the wedding is a big headache. Honestly, writing Thank You notes was such a PITA that you will want to have even less to do after the wedding! Get the ones for the gifts youre receiving now out of the way. You will be glad you did this once it comes time to write all the other thank you notes. In addition, you definitely dont have to send Thank You notes to people just for attending the wedding so theres no need to wait!

    We just started receiving the first of our wedding gifts as well – and we’ve decided to write our thank you cards right away. We want our friends and family to know that we’ve received their gifts – wouldn’t want them to think that it got lost in the mail or something.

    I’ll probably send my thank you notes as the gifts come. The etiquette is something like, before the wedding you have 2 weeks to send them out. After the wedding it’s 4 weeks. I don’t care about etiquette, I just will remember my reaction better if I send them as I get them 🙂
