@californiabride2013:  The wording that we used was, 


“Dear xxx,


Thank you so much for your incredibly generous gift! We have been putting away money to save up for (insert a house, certain appliance, trip, etc) and this will really help us get to that goal! We appreciate this so much, thank you for helping us celebrate our new life together and helping contribute to something that we both will cherish forever” 


Short, sweet, to the point, but everyone still feels appreciated and like their gift really meant something. 🙂

@PacificMrs:  +1 except we didn’t write the check amount in the thank you card.

ETA: You don’t have to write out exactly what you’re spending the money on. For several of the thank you cards we wrote something along the lines of “Your gift will help us start our new lives together” or “make our house a home” or something. People mostly just want a thank you.

@californiabride2013:  I just write thank you for your generous gift and then a line about what we plan to use the money for, say you appreciate it, etc.

I wouldn’t write the amount – kind of gauche.

“Dear Jane,

Thank you for the lovely wishes and your generous gift. It was so kind of you, and we’ve used to it puchase the XXXXX from our registry.  We are sorry you couldn’t join us at the wedding, and your smile was missed, but we know you were with us in spirit and we look forward to seeing you soon.

I recieved my first “no with money” reply yesterday and I am so grateful that someone asked this question as I was trying to think of how to word things!
