As the title says I can’t go to my college roommate’s wedding. We’re not close anymore and I am respectfully declining the RSVP. I have a nice card to send. I’m a poor new graduate, do I need to send a gift? Or is a card good enough? I don’t want to be rude. I should know what to do after reading weddingbee so much, but I need reassurance. 🙂 thanks!

I think a nice card with a personal note is enough. There’s no obligation to send a gift.

I was in a similar situation and sent a nice card with well wishes. However, when it was time for my wedding she sent a shower gift even though she missed the shower and she and her husband came to our wedding giving us a generous gift. I felt really bad for not sending them a gift. Just putting that out there.

I would give her a gift, even if it’s something small. Unless you’re really not in a position to give one I think one should always err on the side of too generous.

I nice card is definitely enough. I might send her something really cheap off her registry- like something $5ish.
