@sunnyde:  I wouldn’t write them another card.  That’s a bit absurd that they would demand one.

 “You already have our thanks for the wonderful _____, but we wanted you to know not only how much we appreciate the gift but also you attending the wedding and sharing our day.”

No need to upset people who seem like they would DELIGHT in being offended!

I think a note re-acknowledging the shower gift and thanking them for attending the wedding is perfectly acceptable. And that way, there is no way they can fault you for not sending a “thanks for coming to the celebration” note.

@sunnyde:  I would thank them for attending and let them know how much you’re enjoying gift ‘x’ or how it’s changed things for the two of you perhaps?
