My wedding was July 2nd. It was a destination for us – in DH’s home town across the country from where we live.
My MOH’s parents came to the wedding. They had to travel as well. As soon as we were home and settled, Darling Husband and I wrote all the thank you cards. 99% of the guests gave us a check, so we weren’t expecting gifts to come later. My MOH’s parents gave me a beautiful tray at my rehearsal dinner. They didn’t leave us a gift or card at the wedding. I didn’t think anything of it. I know they had to travel which was expensive. I sent them a thank you card – thanking them for coming, saying we loved the tray, etc. Today, I get a box from Macy’s with all our plates we registered for from them. I already sent the thank you cards out. Should I just send them another thank you card for the plates? A phone call would be an option too, but they are generally not people I call and chat with. I just dont want a 2nd thank you card to seem weird.

I would send another card and list it thanking for the plates specifically. If you don’t chat with them then a .44cents stamp will do the trick!

@Miss Sunset: Totally agree, maybe send them a picture of you guys using the plates since they did get you all of them

I actually had a similar situation – Destination Wedding, sent thank yous, and just got a gift card in the mail today from one of my dad’s business associates. I actually just sent him an email (looked it up on the company website) letting him and his wife know we got the gift card, thought sending another thank you card would be overkill but wanted to acknowledge and thank them, described how we’d definitely get use out of it, and wished them a good summer.
I got a reply back thanking me for acknowledging receipt, agreeing another card was unnecessary, etc. I think it’s important to reach out in some way, but I’m not positive you have to send another card. Though if you want to, it’s certainly fine.

Yes, definitely send another thank you for the plates… and, love the idea of including a picture using them! 🙂

i actually think the idea of a picture using plates is kinda weird, no offense! i think a card with maybe a wedding pic in it would be nice. or no pic is fine too,

Yes, send another thank you note. Do not include a photo.
