The months leading up to, and sometimes after, your wedding are filled with gifts. And while everyone loves being showered in gifts, most of us don’t love the daunting task of writing thank you notes.
First let’s break it up into two categories:
1) Gifts from showers and gifts given before your wedding
2) Gifts given at or after your wedding
A good rule of thumb for gifts you receive before the wedding is to have the thank you note sent before your wedding happens. This will show your guest that you got their gift and that way you won’t have as many to write after your honeymoon. For gifts you receive at showers, those notes should be sent out two or three weeks after the event.
For gifts you receive at or after your wedding, the timeframe for thank you notes is much longer. Generally, you should have them all completed and sent out within three months of your wedding date. But a late thank you note is always better than not sending one at all!
