If you can think of a good excuse to ask your friend for the address without mentioning your wedding, try that.  Or if you think it’s safe, write a thank-you note and seal it in an envelope and ask your friend to give it to the boss.  If you don’t think either of those options is safe, try searching for the boss in the phone book and online… you just might find him.

Good luck!  And congrats on your first wedding gift! Laughing

I would get the address from your friend and casually ask about the spelling of his wife’s name.  I don’t think you need to say anything about the wedding date to them.  Just thank them for their wonderful gift.

Is the address on the check that they sent you?  If it’s a joint account then the wife’s name might be on there too

Ask Friend if she knows the wifes name.  Chances of asking her why…probably slim. If she does then say you got something in the mail from 2nd boss can’t quite make out the wifes name.  No need to go into details and explain what it is.   

I don’t think that you need to address the date issue.  Just a thank you would do.
