If you’re not attending the wedding, you don’t have to send a gift. (You don’t even HAVE to bring a gift even if you attend, but it’s polite since they’re hosting you.) Especially if it’s just a coworker. I don’t think what “Lisa” gives or doesn’t give matters.

Normally, I would say that what the other person gives or doesn’t give as a wedding gift should not be a consideration, but if she is well known for not gifting co-workers who are getting married,  it doesn’t seem reasonable for her to expect gifts on the occasion of her wedding.

determinedtobee:  I agree, no gift is necessary. Not in a malicious way or anything, just that gifts probably aren’t a big deal to her. Just a genuine congratulations, and you’re good to go! 🙂
