I know the topic of whether or not thank you’s should be sent for those who did not give gifts, has been covered quite a bit, but — that’s not exactly what this is about. I plan to send thank you’s to a few people who attended and did not bring a gift.
But…I am having a hard time thinking of enough to say aside from the basic ‘Thank you so very much for joining us at our wedding.’ ‘It was great to see you both.’ ‘Many thanks for sharing in our special day’ stuff.
Has anyone seen any really good sample thank you’s for this situation?

That’s about all I wrote in our non-gift thank you cards… I wrote bigger too so it filled the card 🙂

“It means a lot to us that you traveled to our wedding” or “took the time to be with us on our special day; we really appreciate it. It was so wonderful to have everyone we love surround us as we begin our new life together, so thanks again for your support and well-wishes. We really should hang out together soon/we really hope you come to visit us again sometime.” I could go on, bullsh*tting is an important life skill. 😉

Not that i think having a wedding demands gifts.. but even I am finding it hard to send thank you notes to people who didn’t give gifts. Thanking them for coming? To me I’m afraid their going to open it up and read.. “hey thanks a lot for nothing” or “yeah we totally noticed you didn’t even give us a card”…. which is not my intention. Of course I’m sending one to everyone but I’m having this same dilema.
I mean is there any other time people send thank yous for attendance? I’ll be so glad when all the wedding stuff is behind us!
