That’s a really nice note to send to them. Actually I don’t think you have to send a thank you note if all you received is a card. So you could cut the line that says “The wedding card was lovely and had such a touching and thoughtful message” and just thank them for coming and being supportive of you. That alone would be a super nice thing to do.

I agree with chelseamorning, but it’s not required, so either way is classy.

I don’t think it’s required, but your thank you is very classy and perfect.

I do not think you should write a thank you card. For weddings, thank you notes should be written to those who give gifts or help out. One should not write a thank you note for a card or for only attending (or not attending) a wedding. I know many on here diagree, but none of the etiquette experts do.

Very thoughtful and perfectly worded! It seems like your uncle really was looking forward to attending and would enjoy knowing you thought of him as I’m sure he was thinking of you.

That is a very thoughtful comment and perfectly appropriate.
