- Wedding: October 2011 - Tre Bella, Mesa, AZ
One of my FI’s bridesmen and nephew is getting married the month before us in a different state. We’ll be attending the wedding and probably giving them a fairly large cash gift. I didn’t think we would be invited to a bridal shower since we are OOT, but the bride’s aunts who are hosting sent us an invite. Most of what I’ve read says we don’t need to send a gift, but I just want to get some feedback because of the closer relationship.

I agree with PurpleUnicorn. The wedding gift should be enough.

i have this issue all the time. i live in california but grew up in michigan, and all of my dear high school friends who get married invite me to their bridal showers. obviously i’m not going to shell out an extra $300-400 in plane tickets to attend that in addition to their wedding, and generally i feel that they’re just trying to make me feel welcome and included. i don’t send them a separate gift, as the expense of attending their wedding is already so high and of course i get them nice wedidng presents.
