Fiance and I are having a very small wedding later in the summer…just close family and a few friends (30 total). We didn’t do a registry (our families are all over and have to travel, so we don’t want to set the expectation of gifts), aren’t doing showers, etc. Fiance’s brother and SIL very generously sent us a sizable sum to put towards our already-booked honeymoon, but we’re still 4 months out. Should we go ahead and send a thank you card now, or since it’s a wedding gift (not a shower/engagement gift) should their card go out with the rest in August?

ASAP! Any gifts you get, send out the card asap. Maybe make a list so you know who you’ve sent ones to already. Also, less work after the wedding lol.

As soon as you receive them!

Thanks! That’s what I thought. I went ahead and ordered the thank yous just now, and I’ll make sure to send their card ASAP. I joked to Fiance this morning that we’ll have to make sure to up our game this Christmas…usually we do something small for our nephew, but he’ll be getting a more hefty than usual college fund deposit this year!

Agreed- thank you note as soon as a gift is received! A spreadsheet with names, addresses, gift and a check for thank you note sent is extremely helpful!

If the stationery will take time to order, I would just buy a box of plain notecards.

I had the same question so this is good to know. On a similar note, do you send another card after the wedding to thank them for coming? Or is just the one card okay for the gift?

pinkrose398 : I hadn’t thought of this…excellent question.
Also, it’s Minted, so it’ll be here within a week, and we’ll send it right away. It’ll have my married name on it, but oh well (hopefully that’s not a huge faux paus, ha).

We recieved an early gift from my aunt (who couldn’t figure out how to RSVP online, so she mailed in her RSVP along with a gift lol). I called and thanked her right away and plan to send her a formal written thank you (with a picture from the day of) when we do all of the others after the wedding.

pinkrose398 : You don’t need to send another card after the wedding to thank them for coming – the reception is the thank you and you can also thank them in person for coming when you see them. Just one card for the gift is sufficient.

I sent out thank you cards as we received our gifts.

Surely you have a notecard? Don’t wait around for fancy stationery with the wrong name to ship!
I find it kind of weird to give your nephew an extra large gift this Christmas. That’s basically giving part of their gift right back to them.

MollyCatherine : I don’t (bad adult), and it’s from Minted so it’ll be here within a few days. I might pick up a generic thank you card to bypass the name issue. And the comment about our nephew was tongue in cheek…by that, I just meant that we need to up our gifting game in general!
