How about “thank you for sharing the day with us?” 

Strictly speaking, if she only attended, didn’t play a role in the wedding and didn’t get you a gift, she’s not owed a thank you so you could just send the ty to your Mother-In-Law.

I got married in August as well, and in the same situation as you. You can read my horror stories about  my Mother-In-Law and SIL in the family section. My mother in law gave a card to my husband only and included a gift card to home depot ( he is a contractor) my sil gave us a card but refused to sign HER name so she put her dogs names…we felt that after drama and no support and basically cutting them out, we werent going to send them Thank You cards, the did their damnest to try to ruin the wedding, so to me why thank them for that. We sent back the GC his mother gave him so it solved our problem of having to send a Thank You.

We are only sending Thank You to people who gave a card or a gift.

I’m not sure you really need to send a Thank You to someone that attending but made it hell for you but didn’t give a card or a gift. I say don’t send her anything

How about, “thank you for all that you didn’t do.” (I.e. be even worse than what you were that day!) Laughing

I would just kill her with kindness. “Thanks for sharing our special day with us, it meant so much to both of us that you were there.”

I agree with Artbee. A Thank You note is not the time to call her out for her immature behavior.  So send her the generic thank you.
