Ohhh I want to see the answer to this. I have a feeling we’re going to be in the same position because we werent able to invite a lot of closer extended family. I have a feeling some will send cash even though they werent invited.

How about something on how you plan to spend it?  Like “it will go toward our kitchen update”  or “dream vacation”?

…[what you stated]… We are excited and blessed to begin our lives together and your generous gift will help us in doing so.  Thanks again for thinking of us at this special time in our lives.

Or as others have stated, whatever purpose you plan on using it for would work!

Hmmm maybe something like:

Dear so and so

Thank you so much for your generous gift and well wishes. We really appreciate you thinking of us and we’ll put your gift to good use with our upcoming ____ (house purchase/reno, honeymoon, whatever). We hope to see you soon!

Sincerely

The Newlyweds

I like heathaah’s suggestion to mention what the money will go towards.  But just an additional note, it’s a bit more appropriate to say “thank you for your generous gift” rather than “thank you for the check” so you may want to change that too.

I agree that “gift” is a better way to say thanks for the money.

Thanks for the gift is awfully brief so I think adding details of what the money will go towards will help to make them feel like you really thought about it, and you really appreciated it.

“Thanks so much for your thoughfulness. We are realizing now how many things we still need for the house. Your gift was used towards our dining room table – thanks so much for saving us from eating in front of the television!”
