- Wedding: February 1997
Absolutely, all guests receive a thank you. It is (or ought to be) gift enough that people took time out of their busy lives to attend the wedding; it truly is the thought that matters. People being there to support us in person meant more than gifts ever could, and we felt it was important to thank everyone – all those who attended, all those who sent gifts or cards but could not attend, and all those who brought gifts in addition to attending.
One more excuse not to send thank you notes is not what anyone needs, IMO. I’ve attended (and given gifts at) several weddings and never received a note to acknowledge they even received the gift. Thank you notes are more and more rare, it seems, and I think a wedding is not the place to risk a breach of etiquette.
