I am not to sure how to word my thank-you cards to guests that gave us money as a gift.
I was thinking something like:
We were so glad to see you at the wedding. We appreciate the gift you gave us and will be putting it towards our honeymoon.
I don’t know is that rude? My mom said not to word them like that? What would you put?

I would thank them for celebrating the day with us (if they did) as well as for their generous gift, and note how much it was appreciated that they did both (share your day/were so generous etc).But in a more articulate fashion haha.
I don’t think you need to tell folks specifically what you plan on using the money for, be it the honeymoon, a new vaccum or underwear. I can see how you mum might feel it awkward/rude (though imo only minor).

I would just say what you normaly would say for a thank you card.. but instead of ” Thank you for the blender, we can’t wait to use it! “thank you for your generous gift! It was greatly appreciated.” and then continue on..

If they gave us cash we said–
“Thank you so much for your wedding gift. We were able to put it to good use completing our wedding registry. It was wonderful seeing you and thank you for sharing our special day.”
If they gave us a check we said–
“Thank you so much for your wedding gift. We put it in a special savings account for a down payment on a home. Due to your thoughtfulness we are closer to our goal. It was wonderful seeing you and thank you for sharing our special day.”
