I feel horrible, but I cannot find the the list of gifts we recieved at the wedding. We opened them ourselves, as my husband was only home on leave for a short time (Army). We tried but could never get everyone together at the same time, and we certinly weren't waiting until everyone else was available and my husband had already left. This means we also have noone else who can help us remember who gave what.
We actually only got gifts, monetary or otherwise, from about 30% of the people who attended our wedding. I am not complaining in any way, it actually makes it a little easier to remember most of the gifts, but I still don't remember all of them.
My prediciment is, I will certinly of directly thank those whose gifts I remember. The issues is, how do i address those who I dont. I dont want to miss thanking people who gave gifts I dont remember, but I also dont want to seem like im fishing for gifts by sending thank yous to everyone. Is this a situation where sending generic thank yous to everyone I dont rmemeber gifts from be appropriate?
I would ask, but I would like to aviod making people feel bad who didnt bring a gift, as well as if my MIL found out, it would be AWFUL. Tensions are high with my husband deploying VERY soon, (which has somehow been deemed my fault), and her attitude will only get worse towards me, and right now I cannot handle that added stress.
Please help me, I want to do the best thing I can do in this situation, considering I already screwed up!
