i received a gift at our wedding as being from my uncle, aunt, and two cousins. only my aunt and one cousin attended our wedding. how do i acknowledge that my aunt and cousin attended the wedding (for which i’m really thankful for, btw) in the thank you card, without sounding as if i’m excluding the rest of the family? (we’re not close)
thanks for any help!

Are the aunt and uncle married? or is it a separate aunt and uncle? and are the cousins their children i.e. siblings?

I’m going to assume they’re all part of the same household?
“Dear Aunt, Uncle, Cousin 1, and Cousin 2,
Thank you so much for the beautiful potato masher. We love it, and we can’t wait to mash some potatoes with it. It was wonderful to see Aunt and Cousin 1 at the wedding, and we were sorry to miss Uncle and Cousin 2. We hope you’re having a lovely spring.
Wife and Husband”

thank you for your suggestions!
i think my aunt and uncle are separated, if not already divorced, but it’s not that public in our family. also, the card was signed from all four of them. what to do?

If the separation isn’t public, a thank you card is definitely not the place to bring it up. You are just thanking them all for the gift, and 2 of them for attending. I think @mightywombat’s reply is still best.

Then yeah I agree with what @mightywombat said x
