Not to look a gifthorse in the mouth, but…
Today, we received a response card from FI’s uncle. Included in the envelope was the response card and a cheque. No card, no personal message on the RSVP, just the response card and a cheque. If it changes anything, he declined the invitation.
We are thankful for the gift, but does the presentation seem weird to you?

We recieved two of those. I honestly didn’t think much of it. We just sent a thank you and cashed it.

I don’t think it’s that strange. Maybe it would have been nice to get a note or something, but some people just prefer… the direct route? He is probably the kind of person who values efficiency.

Is your FI’s uncle single? Maybe he’s just doing things the most efficient “man” way, rather than the most romantic/kind way. lol

To the point, I love it! I’d cash it and be thankful.

We got two of those as well from people who could not attend.. we were excited and sent a thank you right away =)

This was my first thought. Not everyone knows the “proper” way of doing things and often it seems to be the men, but not always. At least he sent something.

Etiquette seems to be fading these days; I’d cash it and send a thank you card.

It would strike me as a bit strange – I’d never think to send a check with an RSVP regret (meaning, if I couldn’t attend and wanted to send somethign – I’d send a gift or a wedding card/check).
