    @MRSsrm85:  If you don’t consider this girl a friend to you, I wouldn’t bother sending a gift. If you feel like you need to send something, I would send a card with well wishes and that is it. And who on earth sends a invitation to a wedding via text message unless they are probing for gifts? I think that is so tacky!!

    No!  Reply back that you can’t make it and best wishes. Leave it at that. I wouldn’t send a gift, let alone a card through the mail…seeing you were invited through a text message?  Pet peeve of mine, that and by social media!

    Text message invite or not, you arent really friends with this girl. You wouldnt invite her to your wedding and are likely to have much contact again in the future. No need for the present. A card is fine.

    If you aren’t going, you needn’t send a gift.

    If you do go you should bring a gift, even if the invite was via balloonogram.

    The only time I really ever give gifts for weddings I don’t attend is if they are a relatively close friend or if I go to their shower (shower gift, no wedding gift). I don’t think you have anything to worry about by not giving a gift

    A card would suffice
