I’m doing our thank you notes and have a problem. We had a very small wedding and every guest gave us cards with either cash or gift cards in them and we were very careful to keep all the cards. I have two of my oldest friends (a couple) who came from out of state…I have no card from them, I’m not even sure they gave us one (I very vaguely remember a mention about something being sent after the wedding), and I have no clue that if they did what was in it. How do I write a thank you in this case?

renwoman: if they didn’t give you a card, and hinted at it coming after then you send nothing. You can send a thank you after they send you a gift.
If they travelled a good distance and you just want to thank them for celebrating with you then you can write a thank you note for that too but it’s not “required”.

Since they were from out of state, I would still send a thank you note stating how you really appreciated them travelling to share your special day with you. That alone meant so much to you.
I know some people think that travelling to a wedding would be their present since it usually has a lot of costs involved already. Just keep it simple and genuine but still thank them for going out of the way to share with you.

renwoman: I would send the thank you, thanking them for coming to the wedding and sharing in your special day with you. If they are sending something and it arrives after you’ve sent this card, send another card or call to acknowledge receipt of the gift.
Two people sent us gifts after thank yous had already gone out – we sent a new thank you note so they knew we’d received it, but I’m sure phone call would have sufficed too
