Q: How long after a wedding, are you allowed to send the gift? I always heard six months, but nobody in my office has heard such a thing. Can you please clarify.
A: In the past it was said that a wedding gift may be given up to a year after the wedding takes place. It seems to be a carryover rule, but naturally it is important to give a gift before the wedding, or as soon after as possible. Otherwise, you have an entire year of having the bride and groom remember you as one of the few who didn’t give a gift, and a year of feeling guilty every time you see them, or even avoiding them out of guilt!
