Background: We have been living together for some time now, so we didn’t do a big household registry. Instead we did a honeymoon registry. The point of the website is for you to pledge a certain amount and give us the money at the reception. Well, only 2 people actually went to the website and did the pledge. Most got the hint and just gave us money for the honeymoon. My husband and I opened the cards the night of our wedding…I told him to write down who gave us what amount of money and he was like “nah, I’ll remember”. I didn’t want to argue on our wedding night so I let it go.
Well, now I am writing thank you cards (late I know, I feel awful) and there are 5-6 guests whom I have no idea if they gave us a gift or not. I have their cards but I don’t remember if they gave us money. How would you word a thank you card without knowing whether or not they gave you money?

If they gave you checks, you can get copies of the deposited checks from your bank, and cross reference with the 5-6 you’re missing records for.
I’m not sure how to word a thank you card if you don’t know what you’re thanking them for… Eek! I’m really glad I wrote everything down now!

@IngridS: This exact thing happened to us. I had some cards that I forgot to write down who gave us what and that Darling Husband lost!! Anyways, I had my Thank you cards made from Vista Print and inside It said this: (See Below) I thought it was a good way to say thank you for their gift without having to remember exactly what they gave us. 🙂

@IngridS: “nah, I’ll remember”
Oh my gosh that is insane. I would never be able to remember stuff like that!

Personally, I’ve never received a Thank You card that had the specific item or gift that they were thanking me for. Most of the time it’s something like “Thank you so much for sharing our special day with us and for your thoughtful gift! We really enjoyed seeing you there and hope you had a great time celebrating with us!”
