I received some gifts of money when I was married and the protocol for that--as well as birthdays, etc.--is to thank them for their consideration and tell them what you bought with the money. For a wedding I wrote: Dear____ Thank you so much for your gift! (name of husband) and I so enjoyed shopping for the (dishwasher, china, silverware, etc) and settled on (pattern, brand, etc). We really appreciate your help in starting our household and will enjoy your gift for many years. It looks beautiful in our (kitchen, living room, den, etc) and we will think of you every time we see it. Sincerely (Love, Love always, Your friend, whatever works) and your married name. Let them know they made a big difference with their gift and that they have helped you start your married life in comfort, their friendship and consideration is very appreciated.
