My work sent around a card and collected money. We got the card and $20 in cash and a gift card for Walmart for a decent amount (more than I expected!). Which is great because who can’t find stuff to buy at Walmart lol (even tho it’s not my favorite store they have necessities and food!). But my question is how to do a Thank you to ~10 people who contributed? The card was mainly from the managers I work for who aren’t all on the same floor, and a couple in a different building. Write a thank you for their “contribution” to each? Obviously I don’t know who gave what.
Thanks in advance. I may not reply soon, because the wedding is today (yay!) and then we’ll be gone for a week and I haven’t decided if I’ll lug my giant laptop (giant 19″ and usually stationary pc) with us yet. But I would LOVE advice, cause I’m already wondering how to handle this.

@MrsTangerine: I would automatically say send a postcard from your honeymoon thanking everybody, but as you say everyone is spreadout, this wouldn’t necessarily be seen by everybody.
Are the people coming to your wedding? If not, do you think you may have some wedding favours left over? Or not necessarily THE favours, but something that looks like favours (better if they’re food) and attach a little note thanking them for the gift, put one o everyone’s desk and send to those or pop round if you can with favours for the others in the other building.
If this isn’t feasible, send a group email when you get your pro-pics with a photo of you and your DH on your wedding day and write a lovely thank you note.
EDIT: Also I hope you have a wonderful day and an even better future with your DH! I can’t wait to see your photos recap.

In our office people ususally write one card to “everyone” and it either gets routed around or most often just posted on our bulletin board for everyone to see.
And sometimes people do a thank you in the office via email, which I think is ok in that setting.

We always have baby/bridal showers in my office, and the recipient always sends a nice email out to everyone, rather than worrying about a card. It’s generally sufficient enough!

My work gave me a little lunch party and a plant with cash tied all over it from everyone in the office for my wedding. I wanted to thank everyone at once so the week I was gone I sent one of those fruit edible arrangements with a thank you note to “everyone”. They all loved it! (I didn’t invite anyone from work if that is applicable.)
Congrats on your big day, by the way! Have fun on your honeymoon!
