@DCbride123:  Did it come directly from the store, or was there a return address on the envelope?

Not even a return address on the package or the invoice? 🙁

I think there’s nothing you can do, except for some sleuthing and patience!
Pre-write the note and just put a post-it on ther “mystery gift card thank you” until you figure out who it is!

That’s so weird that the store didn’t keep track of that for you! When we registered one of the stores told us that they keep track of the purchases in case something gets delivered without a name. How frustrating that they didn’t do that for gift cards for you! 

Could you post something on facebook?

@DCbride123:  We had two gifts that arrived in the mail with no name or anything,  Same thing, they can’t track the sender  :/  

I think when I’m done with all the thank you notes, I’m going to bcc email the people who aren’t accounted for asking for help trying to figure out who it’s from….  I don’t want to shame anyone who didn’t bring a gift, but idea of not thanking people for generous gifts is way worse!

Honestly, I wouldn’t worry about it. THEY forgot to put their name on it, not your fault. Don’t stress so much about it, you prob got plenty of other things on your mind. If they were truely thinking about getting a thank you card, they wouldn’t have forgot. And of course if it was an honest mistake, well then maybe they will bring it up to you, like ” Hey did you get our gift card from ___ ” thats just what i would do, in a situation like that.

Don’t worry about it. I plan to send thank you cards to everyone who attends the wedding, whether or not there’s a gift. You could do that and whoever sent it will probably think the thank you was for the gift as well.
