I used first names or titles (e.g. “Nana”), but then I’d met all my guests! Assuming they are friends or relatives of your parents/FILs, I might ask them what they think – “mum, do you think Mr and Mrs Smith would want to be called by their first names in the thankyou card or not?”

Definitely ask the Mom!

Also, consider how they signed their own name on the card to you.

Personally I would address guests I had never met as Mr and Mrs Lastname. For example, FFILs and FMILs boss and their wives are coming to our wedding. Neither Fiance or myself has met them. So I will put Mr and Mrs. However, if Fiance has met them before then I would put their first names.
