@blacksapphire: oh no 🙁 Send thank you cards to those who sent you gifts. That sounds terrible! All of that effort on your part to make a nice mini vacation for your guests and they didn’t appreciate it enough to buy a simple gift. I feel like I might encounter this problem as well, all of my guests will be out of town and with all of the flights and hotels I am not expecting very many gifts.. sucks but it was totally my choice.

We only sent thank yous to people who gave gifts.  The people who came to the wedding already got thanks with free food and drink.

I think it’s more courteous to send thank-you cards to all that attended, regardless of whether they bought a gift or not. I would feel slightly annoyed if I went to a wedding and only some people got thank-you cards and I didn’t get one (although I don’t think I’d ever turn up at a wedding without a gift in the first place though). For those who attended and gave a gift, one thankyou card is enough, as long as you be sure to include that you are thanking them for attending and for the gift. x
