- Wedding: August 2012
OK, so as hard as we tried, with all the chaos surrounding our wedding (we had a house full of guests, Rehearsal Dinner the night before at our house and brunch the day after at our house) I think we lost a stack of cards.
Darling Husband swears he saw a couple of these cards, some were from his friends and family, a couple from mine…but when I look at the list I can’t recall in all the excitement. We were so busy that we actually didn’t finish opening them for two weeks. We spent the night of the wedding on our boat and he swears he remembers seeing them in the few that we opened–like I said I can’t for the life of me recall. I was extremely careful to keep them all together but if Darling Husband had his hands on them, anything could have happened–he’s a little forgetful sometimes.
I have searched high and low but our house is still in huge disarray so they could be somewhere in one of the rooms in a box, bag, pile…it’s about a dozen couples out of 92.
Anyway, if I don’t find them miraculously before I start our thank yous in a couple weeks–how do I address this? I would NEVER ask if someone gave us a gift–I just want to know if I should say something like, “Thank you so much for being there with us to share the most wonderful day of our lives. It means the world to us!”. I just cringe thinking if they did give us a card (especially with cash–if it was a check they would be able to tell we hadn’t cashed it) that they will think we are ingrates and rude. I am pretty sure there are a couple in there that didn’t give us a gift, that’s only natural in that amount of people.
What do we do?
