I don't really need advice, I'm just wondering if this has happened to anyone else.
We received a "Congratulations Newlyweds" card with a very generous check today from my FH's grandparents. This is odd to me, because they told FH that they are coming to the wedding in three weeks. When Grammy told FH that they would come, she said "unless something happens health wise, but we'll let you know if we can't make it."
The card didn't say anything about them not coming, just said "Have a wonderful life together, love X and X" but I can't figure out why they would mail it rather than bring it for when we see them in person at the wedding?
We aren't bringing it up and still trusting their RSVP, of course. FH mentioned that "we can't wait to see them at the wedding" in the thankyou note we're mailing out ASAP, just as another mention that we're expecting them...
Has anyone had a guest mail the congratulations card/gift in advance and then still attend the wedding? Or anyone who RSVPed then mailed a card instead of showing up?
