I’ve been searching around for an answer to this problem and I can’t find it (although I’m sure it’s been asked before)- so I knew where I needed to turn!
We invited a couple to our wedding and both RSVP’d yes. However on the day of “Uncle” didn’t show up because he was sick (or something). We received a card from both of them, but no gift (which is fine).
How do I write a thank you note for this type of situation? I’m thinking something like this:
“Dear Aunt and Uncle,
Thank you for thinking of us on our wedding day. We were sorry to see that Uncle wasn’t feeling very well and had to miss out on the celebration, but it was great to have Aunt there bringing love and support from both of you. The wedding card was lovely and had such a touching and thoughtful message. Hopefully we will all get a chance to get together and catch up soon.
Thank you again -Us”
I guess this could work? Mehh… any ideas?

thanks for the validation ladies!
Oh yea! This woman also wore all white to the wedding! I didn’t take offense, but maybe I should add a little p.s. at the bottom: (Thanks for being a walking faux pas- Every wedding needs one!)

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.
