What’s the proper thing to do when receiving a wedding announcement? Send a gift? Send a card? Send??
The couple that sent it eloped last month and sent a card with their picture. They will be attending our wedding, if that makes a difference to anyone.
I asked Fiance if he planned to send a gift, and he said no. I’d at least like to send a card… what’s the verdict, hive?

If it were me, I would send a card and a gift. They are close enough to you that you are inviting them to your wedding, so that is what I think would be best.

It ultimately depends on what you guys are able to do. If they are close enough to you guys to be invited to your wedding, then I would send them a card and gift. If money is really tight right now, maybe just a nice card with a note congratulating them.

I think I’d send a card and a gift—or maybe a giftcard.

I’d send a card w/ something in it.

I would send a card with probably a gift card inside. I’m sure if you sent the card only it would be just fine though, they probably aren’t expecting anything.

I vote card + gift – – Not to be too repetative, I think the way @Miss Beach: writes it says it all!

Card only. No gift necessary; nice if you want.

At least send a giftcard, then they can pick up something they like to begin their new iife together. I think that would be a sweet thing to do

I said “Card only.” I wouldn’t send a gift. (Money is tight right now– I probably would send a gift it that was not the case.)

I’d send a gift or gift card if you are close with them. If you expect they’ll get you a wedding present, I think it’s the right thing for you to get them one too. It’s a reflection of the relationship you have with them, as opposed to a “cover your plate” mentality.
