I would still send them a card thanking them for being involved and all their support and such.  One of my bridesmaids just gave me a card and I still sent her a card letting her know how much I appreciated everything.  I honestly didnt expect a gift from the bridal party seeing as they already spent so much money throwing the stag/stagette and travelling to the wedding.  And if they do send a gitft eventually then i would just call and thank them for the gift.

I still sent a card for participation but I was irked at the amount of people who didnt send a gift. They were all groomsmen and unmarried so I guess I can’t be too upset. lol

For regular guests I would say no because I think receiving a thank you card for attending is weird on two levels: 1) it’s like a big sign that the person didn’t give a gift and could make them feel awkward/guilty, and 2) the reception is supposed to be seen as the thank you for the guests coming out and witnessing your union. However, because these are all bridal party members, I think it would be totally appropriate to write a heartfelt letter expressing your gratitude that they helped out and stood by your sides (if you didn’t already give a letter to that effect).

@ZChick17:  Right, becuase your thank you to them will be for so much more so it won’t be awkward. Writing letters of thanks, just like giving a gift to the wedding party, are now commonplace when it comes to wedding parties.
