    I see this often - no acknowledgment of a gift, verbal or otherwise. I find it rude personally, and it makes me not so enthusiastic to give gifts. I am fine with someone just saying "thank you", a phone call, even a text or facebook message, but unfortunately with younger people it seems to be thought of more as an entitlement rather than a gift. So...rant over.

    I had not been to a wedding since around 1984??? It took 4-5 weeks to cash the check. We love the family no hard feelings, I was just wondering how things were today.

    I think they've gone the way of the rotary phone. I haven't received one in many years. And I've been to numerous weddings. Maybe it's just a PacNW thing....pretty loose up here.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    I think etiquette says that you have a year to give a wedding gift, and recipients have 3 months to write thank-you's.

    I was hoping they got the cash. I didn't write a check that time, if I remember right. Then I forgot all about it - but it was nice to know they got it.

    I really don't care much about all this - how things are done or if I get a thank you. I'd be just as happy getting a text from the honeymoon saying "thanks! We're using your money for dinner tonight!" 😄

    As an acknowledgement that it was received, a “thank you” note is essential to me.

    If I put it in their hands, say at a shower, then I dont care about the “thank you” note since they thanked me verbally and I know they got it.

    Ooh, you are right! I had it backwards. You have year to send a gift. They have 3 months to send the thank you.

    Unfortunately, the whole wedding things lately has seemed to be kind of warped--the "destination weddings" being particularly awful.

    Did they get the gift? I always give a money gift by check so I can see if it was received and cashed. The last wedding I attended the card 'box' was an open topped galvanized pail and when I put my card in the pail there was no one around guarding the gifts and card pail. Anyone could walk by and take an envelope with cash. I've thought of giving a gift card but the same thing could happen as with cash.

    I have always been thanked for a wedding gift. Even a email or text would be fine with me. However, if I was totally ignored I would not give anymore gifts.
