Have you sorted out all of the other gifts (the ones with cards)? I would do that first, and then you should have a shortlist of people who came to your wedding for whom you haven’t yet identified whether/what they gave you.

Then, you have a couple of options. You could write a thank-you note saying “Thank you for coming, and, by the way, we are trying to find out who gave us the X/Y/Z because it appears to have been separated from its card. Was this you? If so, thank you!” Or you could try to find out through the grapevine what they gave you (have your mom talk to your aunt, etc. …) and do it that way. I know some Bees don’t like the “thank you for attending” route because it seems gift-grabby; I personally don’t feel that way, I’m of the opinion that it’s never bad manners to thank someone for attending your event.
