I am going to send thank-yous to everyone who comes to the wedding in recognition of the fact that most spent money to travel and all took time out of their lives to celebrate us.

We only sent Thank You cards to those that gave us a gift.

I only sent thank yous to those who gave us a gift.  You already thanked in person those who only attended but brought nothing for their attendance and gave them a favor.  A thank you note in addition is completely unnescessary.

Also, if I ever went to a wedding and didn’t give a gift (which would NEVER happen but hypothetically speaking), receiving a thank you note would feel like fishing for a gift because when you have no gift to thank them for it really puts it in their face that they didn’t give one.

If people are travelling for your wedding and staying overnight close to where you have it, you should thank them for being present with or without a present.

We didn’t. I think it would be a nice gesture, but I was too overwhelmed with thank you notes already.
