I think most of us already concluded that the main card was the one from your father in law, which your mother in law either forgot to sign or figured she’d give her own for whatever reason. But a gift from just mother to son given AT your wedding reception? Unless you have additional evidence to suggest this is true I don’t buy it.
The bigger issue is why you are still letting this take up space in your head. It would be so simple for your H to tell his mom that you were writing thank you notes and ask her to clarify how the gift was intended.
I don’t think you ever said whether his parents had already contributed to the wedding or honeymoon. If so, I suppose it could have been intended as just some extra cash for the honeymoon or something like that.
The fact that H wasn’t going to share it and apparently debated the point remains most relevant thing to me.

“I feel a lot better knowing that I wasn’t completely excluded
” — Did you not know about the couple’s card before you started this thread? Or are you saying it took this thread for you to realize that that was the “main” card?
