That’s kinda funny….I guess they saved on postage!  And they were very environmentally friendly, not wasting any paper on card or packaging…..

Yes, I would definitely send a thank-you note, writing that you will miss them at the wedding but appreciate the sweet gift, etc.

It’s nice to send it to asap. 

Before our wedding, whatever gifts I’ve been receiving, I immediately send out a Thank You card.  Then when the wedding is over, I don’t ahve a lot of cards to send out because I’ve sent the majority of them already.

Well said, melbride.  It sounds like this RSVP might have come from an older guest who felt the need to include a small token in cash with their decline!

Yes, a thank you note is appropriate here.  Keep it short and sweet, that their attendance will be missed but you appreciate the cash gift.  When I send gifts, I always like being acknowledged…only for the fact that I’m glad to know they received it! I hate generic cards that only say, "thank you for the gift". 

It’s much more personal when you actually write out what they specifically gave to you…

Heck yeah send one.  Send it just like you would have gotten it in a card at the wedding:

Your monatary gift was greatly appreciated, and we’re sorry you coulnd’t make it to our big day. You were missed!


something like that.
