- Wedding: June 2013
It’s been two months since my wedding, and I’m just starting the thank you notes. I didn’t realize that thank you notes should be sent so quickly after the gift is received, I thought brides had a year to write them, which is not correct. I feel terrible and rude now so I’m trying to hurry and get them all sent.
The problem is that I was relying on gift registry sites to track all of the gifts. (I wrote it down if it was something off-registry.) I didn’t keep some of the receipts/cards. Now that I sit down to organize everything, I feel like a few of the gifts might be missing from my list. With one couple in particular I just really feel like I saw a card with a gift, which I thought was a registered gift from Crate and Barrel, but we’ve gone through and figured out who got us every gift from our registry, and this couple isn’t on there.
So my question is, how do I thank this couple who I think got us a gift but I’m not sure and have no idea what it was? Should I just send a thank you card and thank them for coming and hope that they will say something if they got us something that we didn’t comment on? Should I explain the situation? But what if I’m misrembering and they didn’t actually give us a gift?
I feel like the worst bride right now and it’s really weighing on me… I so wish I had been really organized from the start and sent thank you cards right away, but now I’m trying to do the best I can with the situation. Help?
