@sunnyde:  I wouldn’t write them another card.  That’s a bit absurd that they would demand one.

No need to upset people who seem like they would DELIGHT in being offended!

I think a note re-acknowledging the shower gift and thanking them for attending the wedding is perfectly acceptable. And that way, there is no way they can fault you for not sending a “thanks for coming to the celebration” note.

@sunnyde:  I would thank them for attending and let them know how much you’re enjoying gift ‘x’ or how it’s changed things for the two of you perhaps?
