If it was a family member, can you have your mother or MIL call them and ask?

Oh no – that’s so awkward!  I have no suggestions, only sympathy for how squirmingly awkward that is!

If you told them your preference was to have it shipped, then I wouldn’t worry about it just yet…we had a number of people who waited a few weeks after the wedding to send their gifts.  Some said because they wanted to make sure we’d be back from our honeymoon, another said to give us time to get settled back in, and another said they were expecting new address cards to know where to send the gifts (we moved in together when we got engaged so no address change).    We also had a couple who asked about our registry who we only received a card from.  I think it’s hard to ask someone about a gift without putting them on the spot and potentially putting your foot in your mouth.  Chances are if it did get lost in the mail or someone walked out with it at the wedding, they’ll let you know they didn’t get a thank you note…”so did you like our gift?” and you can address it then…though chances are it’s not something you’ll have to deal with.
