We received a post-wedding gift from a married couple–the husband was able to attend, but the wife did not. With my other post-wedding thank yous, I’ve mentioned how fun it was to celebrate with the gift-givers if they were in attendance, but I am unsure whether I should say anything in this case. I don’t want it to sound like we are ignoring the wife’s existance. So far, what I have is roughly like this…
Dear (Husband & Wife),
Thank you so much for the Williams Sonoma gift card. We will put it to good use picking out something fun and useful for the kitchen. It was so fun to be able to celebrate our special day with you (Husband). Thank you again to you both for your thoughtful gift and for thinking of us as we start our married life together.
So, not sure if I should delete the line to the husband, add something about missing having the wife there, or leave it as-is. If it makes a difference, these people are a couple our age, but they’re distant family friends that we don’t know very well (I met them just once before the wedding). I think I would feel less confused somehow if they were close friends.
