Writing a Thank You for a lost gift?
My friend and her boyfriend gave a cash gift, which unfortunately, my husband and I never received, how should I word the thank-you? (She acknowledges it was lost or stolen, so there is no reason to pretend that I did get it).
I only found out because I opened a plate set with no card, and I thought it was from her, so I texted her to ask, and she responded, “no, we gave you a card with money
Can I just say, “Thank you for your generous gift and for celebrating our special day with us”?
What do you guys think?

I think your suggestion works just fine.
Does your friend realize that you still have not found the card?

@Miss Bubbles: Yeah, she knows, b/c I wasn’t sure if she had perhaps mailed it or something. She put it in the card box at the wedding and we never got it:-( I feel bad, she feels bad, and wanted to take us to dinner, but I insisted it wasn’t necessary, she had put $200 in that card!

I would never bring a cash gift to a wedding for this reason. I’ve heard a lot of stories about ushers running off with money or something to that effect. Checks, however, are very easy to recover and cancel.
eek! I’m sorry this happened to you.

@MissBuffalo: I agree!! I would never put cash in an envelope unless I handed it directly to the person and said “There’s cash in here!” I really don’t think anyone could have stolen it, I mean, how would they know it was cash? I worry that at the end of the night, it fell on the ground or something, and someone from the hotel found it later and kept it. In the end, I’m glad it was just this one card it happened to. I read on here from another girl that she had a card with $1000 misplaced!
