i’m ok with lying if you don’t remember. or be general. thank you for the generous gift. we used it to buy something nice for our home together. or we’re saving it for our future together. for people who didn’t come to the wedding- we missed you at the wedding. hope to see you soon.

Thank you for your generous gift and your wonderful thoughts during our special day. We were sorry you couldn’t celebrate with us, but thank you for thinking of us…

For those who couldn’t make it, I wrote that they were missed…

For all monetary of g.c. gifts I indicated it was “much appreciated as we fluffed our new nest.”

I used a basic script for most cards, and added to it for close friends and relatives – it’s not like anyone will be comparing their thank-you notes! Oh, and yeah I was gushing with graciousness on all cards, even the “what-were-you-thinking” gifts. You just gotta do it. :S

If someone gave you a particular item I do think it’s nice to mention it in the note.  Nothing elaborate just, “We can’t wait to try the mixer!” or similar.

I wrote the traditional thank you’s but to close friends I wrote goofy stuff because I was tired of all the sappiness.  Like my friend let me come over and cut down branches off her willow tree for centerpieces so I wrote the tree a thank you and sent it to her or thanking a friend for drinking cups we can drink Dr. Thunder (generic Dr. Pepper) out of.
