I’m going to hope that they simply don’t want to haul a lot of boxes home on a flight and poorly executed how to get that message out. Generally boxed gifts are given at showers and are sent to the bride’s home ahead of the actual wedding, while cards and monetary gifts are given at the wedding. I would give her the gift you were planning to give her at the shower, and at the wedding simply give her a card with a heartfelt note.

They shouldn’t have put anything on the invitation about gifts.  Even if its an e-vite.  And I really hope you were able to return your yellow dress and get a full refund or exchange it for the pink one, and if not then she better have reimbursed you.

I’m spending a good chunk of change to get to a friend’s wedding this summer (I’m als in it).  I really can’t afford to get her a gift.  I’m contributing to the shower – both food and part of the group bridesmaid gift, and will give her a card with a heartfelt note for the actual wedding.  I’m hoping that my efforts geting me and FI there and standing up next to her will make up for the fact that I simply cannot afford a gift.
