    @Miss Marbles: I think if you’re in the wedding party, it’s understood that you’ve spent a ton of money, and a gift isn’t necessary.  However, if you bring a date, that person should cover their plate.

    If you were my BM, i would have already told you not to buy a wedding gift. You’ve already sunk so much money into it!

    I just was in a wedding with a similar experience… By the time of the wedding, I just couldn’t afford a gift… Plus I gave her a shower gift and a bachelorette party gift 🙂

    I did it all as a bridesmaid too.  Ugh the ugliest dress on earth and she decided we had to have them custom made….teal moray taffeta with a white lace overlap, hideous.  I attended the showers, parties, and drove 4 hrs after working all night to be in the wedding party, and gave her a gift.  There was never any doubt in my mind, that was in the 1994.  I can’t say I would feel the same now.

    I agree with the poster who said that you don’t need to bring a gift but if you bring a date, they should give a gift to cover their plate… other bees will say a gift is never necessary but I kind of don’t feel that way

    I do not expect gifts from my BMs, but its all up to and your relationship with the couple, if you really want to get them something you can but they really have no right to be mad if you dont.

    In this situation, I’d get her a keepsake, maybe something personalized but inexpensive.

    wow im sure she appreciates you stepping up and filling in the MOH’s spot. Ive known several bridal parties that all pitch in and get a wedding gift, maybe you could do that?

    How about making her a little photo album of pictures from her shower and bachelorette party? It would be a nice keepsake and it will remind her of how much time and effort you put into everything for her.
