If you would like to send out thank you notes or letters for wedding gifts to people who were unable to attend your wedding, here is a simple template for a thank you letter for a wedding gift.
We appreciate the kind gesture you made at our wedding by sending us a gift. Even though you were not able to make it, your presence was certainly felt.
We definitely wished you were there at the most important day of our lives. Since you were not there, we would love to spend some time with you in the future.
