Hi!! I had my wedding just over 2 weeks ago and had an amazing day. 🙂 My *husband* and I Just got back from our honeymoon, and now we’re settling back into normal life and starting to open wedding gifts and get organized!
This certainly isn’t a bad problem, but it’s definitely a problem – we’re trying to sort out gifts for thank you notes, but we received about 15 gifts at the wedding with no cards or gift tags attached to them so we have no idea who gave them. I called the 2 places we registered and figured out who 9 of the 15 came from, but we still have 6 that are unidentified and are very nice gifts but i have no idea where they are from or how to figure it out (handmade gift basket full of awesome items, a gorgeous vase from Ireland…things that I can’t really call on). Did anyone else have this issue, and if so, what did you do?? We had about 170 guests so it’s difficult to figure it out, and I want to make sure we thank them…I’m not sure process of elimination will work as we had several young friends that are struggling financially that we wanted to attend and I told them not to worry about bringing a gift…

That happened to us. I had our guest list in excell and highlighted the peoples names as I went along sending out thank you notes. I had 5 gifts and 8 people. I just asked my MIL, she knew what her siblings gave us. That left two people and one gift so I just asked them. They were both my cousins.

I would ask your mom and his mom to spread the word that you’d really love to finish sending out the thank you notes, but haven’t a clue who sent you a couple items. Someone will speak up and say that they sent item 1 or something.

Laur12: yep, I had this problem. I sent out an email to the whole wedding guest list, BCCed, minus the people who I knew had given us gifts. It basically said thank you for the wonderful weekend and oh by the way, could anyone help us track down the generous gifters of these gifts so that we could thank them appropriately? The gifters IDed themselves and all was good. (I thought a little bit about whether it was rude to send this email to people who potentially hadn’t gotten us a gift – but I decided it was ruder not to figure out the gift givers and thank them, and this seemed like the most polite yet effective way.)
