- Wedding: June 2013
I’ve been working on thank you cards, but I’m a little stuck on what to write in a few of them. Most of the cards, I thank the people for the gift, thank them for attending, and I’ve tried to add little anecdotes that I remember. “It was a lot of fun chatting with you about x.”.
Now, we have a few gifts left, where the gift is from 2 people, but only one of them attended the wedding. I don’t feel right addressing the card to just the individual who was at the wedding, since the gift really is from two people. What do you write? “Thanks so much for the gift blah blah. X – it was so nice to see you at the wedding. Y – we’re sorry you weren’t able to make it?”
Now, there’s the other problem. We have a mystery gift – no card, no names – we thought the gift was from some friends of ours, so when we saw them a week ago, we thanked them in person for it. Turns out, they hadn’t given us a gift yet, and had planned to do that the day we saw them. Everyone else has been accounted for, so we don’t know who it was from. It wasn’t something on a registry either, so we can’t trace it that way either. What do you do? I’ve been thanking people for the exact gifts, and if they gave us cash, I told them what we were planning to spend it on, or had spent it on….
I could put the word out there and see if anyone knows who it was from, but I don’t feel right asking everyone “hey do you know who gave us this gift?”, in case I happen to accidentally ask the person who did.
What should I do?
