    I guess it depends on how big it is. Family (or whoever they decide is in charge of that) could bring the gifts & such home after.

    As a guest, I have never once attended a wedding where gifts were not brought to the wedding. But obviously everyone is different. Go ahead and buy the gift now while it is still available and take it with you. Depending on what the gift is, it may not be worth it to pay for shipping, especially if it is heavy or fragile, in which case the shipping can easily cost you more than the item itself, and there is no way to guarantee that it doesn’t get damaged or broken in transit, which you can avoid if you take it along with you to the wedding. Only you can decide in the end.

    I had people who sent us presents before the wedding even though they came and mostly local people brought gifts with them.  Sending one now isn’t too early.
