How about:

“Thank you for your generous gift. We are sorry that you were unable to make us for our special day!”

whenever i’ve given money, my thank you card always said something to the effect of… “thank you for your generous gift” 🙂

i think that works well… without sounding tacky or overly excited about money.

and also add in verbiage that you’re sad that they won’t be able to make it!

How about:

Dear so and so,

We are sad that you were not able to make it to our special day, we wish you could have been there.  Thank you so much for thinking about us and your generous gift. (Maybe tell them what you plan on doing with the cash they gave you. My grandmother always wanted to know that.)  We hope to see you soon.

Love,

Bride & Groom

I agree with Ms. Caniche – some people sent us checks when we were first engaged (which was weird to me, but whatever). I just wrote something along the lines of “thank you for your generous gift, we’re sure to use it toward (flowers, a new sofa, our honeymoon, etc). Can’t wait to see you all soon.” blah blah blah  – you get the idea. Just to acknowledge that we appreciate their gift but let them know we weren’t going to spend the money on groceries or whatever.

I wrote my $$ thank you cards pretty much exactly like Ms. Caniche wrote out for you and I did include what we planned on using the money on — e.g. putting it towards our new house, using to complete our set of pots & pans, etc.  I actually had a script/template written out for a variety of gifts so when I sat down to write them, I basically wrote the same thing over and over so it would go faster (of course I did personalize each a bit to make it a bit more special).

I think all of the other posts have good suggestions “Thank you for your generous gift, we plan to use it to _________”.  The only other thing Miss Manners points out, is to not make any reference to the amount of money you received, just a generous thank you!
