I would send another one.  She was probably angsting over this for awhile before asking you – I know that can be pretty awkward.  Even though she said not to worry about the note, I’m sure she would be excited to get (a second) one.  This is one of my biggest fears – that someone doesn’t receive a thank you note!

Yep, send another note! Sounds like it just didn’t make it – unfortunate, but considering the sheer amount of mail we send out around weddings (STDs, invites, thank yous for showers, bachelorettes and the wedding itself), SOMETHING is bound to go astray. 🙂

Even though she said not to worry about it, the polite thing to do is to send another note.

I agree, send her another thank you note.  The postal carriers where I live are not the greatest.  Each and every week we get a piece of mail that is addressed to someone else (sometimes it’s one of our neighbors, sometimes it’s not even an address in our neighborhood).  And every week we also have a neighbor stopping by dropping off a piece of mail that they have received that is addressed to us.  Not all of our neighbors are considerate enough to deliver the mail when it’s dropped at the wrong address (or even give it back to the postal carrier to re-deliver), so I often have things that are lost in the mail and never arrive to me.

Send another.  Can’t hurt and she’s probably be pleasantly surprised by it.  She might even think that it’s the one that got “lost” in the mail!!

Believe me, I feel your pain.  My Fiance are budding writers and sent a submission off to an agent (was a partial request, he passed eventually) but the point is, it got LOST in the mail!  I waited the required 3 months before asking if he’d gotten around to reading the request: he said he’d never gotten it!!!

So, we send out another package and it took THREE WEEKS for him to get it!  It should have taken only ONE! 

sooo, yeah.  this is something that really sticks with us anytime we send ANYthing in the mail.  though… I don’t think you can call everyone up or email them to say “hey! did you get my thank you note I sent?” lol.

A pity you can’t just email the thank you cards…. at least then you’d know the person go them! (hopefully…. the internet has eaten stuff I’ve sent, also….)

Send another one – with added details about how much you’ve used and loved her gift and how you appreciate all her efforts to make sure you received it.

Yep, just send it again.  Especially if it had photos or something on it she’ll be happy to receive it.
