If I were really good at following ettiquette, I’d send another card.

But in reality, I probably wouldn’t ever remember to get around to it. 🙂

rusticchic212:  I would probably hold off on writing thank yous for those who didn’t get you a gift until a month or so after the wedding, just in case they were planning on getting it after.

If you do send thank yous for attending and get a gift after, please send a note just so they know the gift arrived!  Since they know you are a thank you sender, they may worry that their gift didn’t make it.

ETA: I just read your question more carefully – I think an informal acnowledgement is fine for people you know well.  If they’re people you don’t know as well or have a more formal relationship with, I’d go with a second note.

Good question! And I’m not quite sure of the “right” answer, but I’m thinking of what I would do in the same situation…

I’d send the card thanking them for attending and just email or call if we got a gift later, maybe even joke that “oops we were too quick for the card, thanks so much for the gift!” But maybe that’s me. I don’t want to pay another $0.85 stamp (Canada) and use up another ty card because they decided to send a late gift lol. But I think no matter what it’s a good idea to let them know you received it.
