I’d just thank them for coming, you had so much fun with them, and that you hope to see them soon. I guess that’s better than thanking them for a gift that you don’t know if they got you.

I agree with @megz06, since you don’t know what they got you…I would just thank them for being at the wedding.

I was sent a thank you note recently from a wedding I attended and the bride thanked me for the wrong gift.  I thought it was kind of funny and cute.  I know she really is a thankful person and that she didn’t want to neglect thanking me for something.  So honestly, even if you do thank them for the wrong gift, you’ll still come across as thankful and they’ll probably just count it as a sweet and innocent mix up.  

I think I would rather be thanked for the wrong gift than not have my gift acknowledged at all, now that I think about it.
