how about waiting until after the wedding when you can send a nice photo of the wedding with it? that way you can see if they get you something from the registery as well.

I’d send more of a card thanking them for thinking of both of you and express how you’re sad that they’re not able to make it to the wedding.

I don’t think you could offend someone with a thank you.  If it meant something to you, I’d send them a note saying how much you appreciated their words.  You could also mention how their presence will be missed at the wedding, but they will be close at heart.  If you end up receiving a gift from them, just write them a second note thanking them for that….

I’d wait to see if they send you a gift so you can thank them for both things but even if they don’t send a gift, I’d still thank them for the lovely wedding literature. They took the time to include the poems and verses so I think it’s nice.

I’d suggest you send them a thank you note now and thank you note if you get a gift.  Also, if the poem or any of the verses are something you want to use in your wedding, I’d mention that too.  I bet that would make them really happy.

I agree with NYbride. You are so close to your wedding, so it would be totally ok to send a thank you card out after. That way, you can wait and see if you get a registry gift and can therefore send a thank you card for both, or if you don’t get one, send a thank you card for their very thoughtful card, which is really a gift on its own!
