So I’ve been working away on writing the thank you notes for my bridal shower, and I can usually write the first bit – introduction, tha actual thank you, but i have no clue what to write as the last sentence! I’m having the most trouble with people who: a) I just met that day, and b) aren’t invited to the wedding, and c) well.. I doubt I’ll ever see them again.
I’d like to finish these today but I’m having the worst time. ANy ideas?

I don’t understand what you mean by last sentence. Do you mean the last sentence of text, or the salultation?
a) It was such a pleasure to finally meet you at our wedding. Thank you so much for the waffle maker. We’re both looking forward to many weekend brunches in the future. All our best/Cheers!/Look forward to seeing you again soon, Mr and Mrs. Mulan05
Or if you husband has met this person many times, have him write it about how nice it was to see them again.
b) We’d like to thank you so much for the waffle maker. We always love spending time together on the weekend over a nice brunch. It means so much to us that you’re thinking of us on our wedding day. (If this is someone you see otherwise, maybe make a reference to spending some time with them other than the wedding, ie, “We’ll have to get together for coffee/get lunch sometime” or a reference to the usual place that you see them). All the best from us both, Mr and Mrs. Mulan05
c) We would like to thank you for the waffle maker. We always love spending time together on the weekend over a nice brunch. It was so lovely of you to be able to come to our wedding, and we appreciate your generosity. (If this is someone you WOULD want to see again, but don’t due to distance, you could express regret that this meeting was so short, or that you don’t see eachother as often as you wish you could) Sincerely/Best regards/All our best, Mr. and Mrs. Mulan05

@Mulan05: Wait, why are people invited to your shower but not to your wedding?

@somethingaquamarine: Could be a coworker shower, or sometimes people do send gifts that aren’t invited to the shower or the wedding. A few of my mom’s coworkers for example sent us gifts that were brought to my shower. They knew me when I was little and hear about me often and wanted to support our marriage, but definitely aren’t close enough to me to drive 5 hours to attend my wedding/be invited to our relatively intimate event.

@somethingaquamarine: It was surprise shower which was hosted by my fiance’s family. It was the same weekend as his grandma’s birthday party, so a few people from her party attended the shower and brought gifts. So, I want to thank them for the lovely gifts 🙂
@SapphireSun: Thanks for the ideas! I meant the last sentence of text. Most of the salutations I’ve been copying from their cards, so that hasn’t been a problem.
