I think people understand that things can get mixed up at weddings. I would be a litle miffed if I gave you something and wasn’t thanked for it specifically, but I’d be happy enough to just receive the thank you note. If I got a thank you note thanking me for something I didn’t give I’d be confused and probably a little annoyed.

You should not thank guests for coming. It can be seen as fishing for giffts to thank them a 3rd time fr coming. 1. the reception is the thank you 2. you’ve personally talked to all the guests at the wedding so to do it again is over kill, and not the most polite.

I would call people and try to work into the conversation that there has been a mix up with gifts, and see what they’ve given.

don’t just thank people for coming.

match up all the gifts with the list of guests.

then if you still have gifts you are unsure about, you might have to call around to find out who they came from.
