I wouldn’t be offended at all. That’s quite a lot of money!

Damn.  I would never ask you to spend all that to begin with so… yeah, a card would be sweet.

You know, my Maid/Matron of Honor ended up in this kind of pinch, even with spending maybe tops $500-$600 on all my events.  She came to me and reasoned with me and promised she’d make it up to me.  My opinion is that I imagine she won’t be offended, particularly if it comes with a reason!

In terms of your little gift, if you make it truly special, something special of your friendship, I think it will mean more than a $250 gift anyway!

No, I wouldn’t be offended. In fact as I was reading this, I was thinking, that being a bridesmaid is a gift in and of itself.

A gift is NEVER required in any social situation.  Consider your gift to the bride and groom the time, travel, and effort you put into their wedding.  I’m going to a wedding in July and its costing me and Fiance so much to get there that I am just going to have to give a nice card (I’m a bridesmaid).

If the bride and groom are offended by your card, they aren’t very good friends.

Good heavens. $2500 would price me out of being a bridesmaid! Get a small, meaningful gift and write a long, meaningful message in the card. I’m sure she’ll understand, especially with everything else you’ve done for her.
