Question - I don't want to sound like i'm fishing for gifts, which i am absolutely not doing. I truly don't care who did and did not get us what. However, my mom mentioned to me the day after the wedding that her cousin "said to tell you that her gift is sending in several separate packages, and the first one set to arrive is just a wooden spoon, and she didn't want you to think that's all she got for you! there is more coming!" So i thought to myself "well i didn't register for any wooden spoons, but whatever. most of my registry stuff came in separate boxes so i've been tracking that already" and i moved on.
The wedding was now a month ago, and we have received nothing from this particular cousin. Again, i don't care if she got us anything or not. But i'm wondering what you would do here...since she specifically mentioned it to my mother, should i tell her we haven't received anything from her yet? the "wooden spoon" mention is now making me extra nervous because i'm afraid she bought from someone else's registry for us (i know at Macy's there was another bride with my same first and last name who also had a registry - that could have been an easy mistake if she didn't double check the groom's name). We have already mailed thank you cards, so most people are aware that we got their gifts.
What does the e-board suggest for this issue? i don't want her to think we are so rude that we don't send thank you cards, but i also don't know how to write a thank you card for a gift that never arrived, and i'd hate to think she picked out something special for us and it went to someone else. thoughts?
