So, we had 38 ppl at our wedding, and I’m knocking out thank you’s this weekend, but I have a tiny bit of an issue. Out of 38 people, we got 5 cards. Five.
Clearly I didn’t have a wedding to get gifts or cards, but I’m surprised, and a little worried that maybe someone took off with some. Or something. For example, we went to a couple’s wedding about a month ago and brought them a sweet card and a check, they cashed the check. So they came to our wedding, and… nothing. I’m not worried about the money, but no card or anything? It’s possible she told him to get one, and he forgot, or vice versa, but I’m just super surprised that they wouldn’t even bring a card.
If they did, and it got lost, I’d hate to not write them a thank you note, but I don’t want to ask and have them feel bad either… what do I do?

I would give them a thank you card, thanking them for coming. Gifts don’t have to be sent until a year at the max, so perhaps some are on their way?

Just thank them for coming on your special day… What else can you do?
If you recieve a gift or card with money later, send another card thanking them for that, at the time you get it….

I would write a thank you note saying thanks for coming and that you enjoyed having them there. If someone did take off with the cards, then you making no mention of it in the thank you might make them ask if you recieved their card. And if they really didn’t bring a card, I would still write a thank you note for coming to the wedding.

I’d write a generic thank you card thanking them for their attendance. It is surprising that you only got 5 cards of the 38 guests, but… I guess all you can do is graciously thank them for their attendance, and if they got swiped, hopefully the guests will figure it out and let you know?
