    I could give it now.  You’re still celebrating her marriage, whether you were invited to the actual wedding or not.

    I would give it to her now, expecially since they had to postpone things, it will help her feel like the small intimate ceremony was special and “real” too– not just that they’re waiting until next year.

    I would send the gift now. You do not need to be invited to the wedding to send a gift.

    Besides, it will spread out the cost if you will have travel expenses later.

    Whatever feels right, I’d say.  I always love presents.  🙂  My BIL and SIL had 3 ‘weddings’ and we didn’t give them a gift until the last one (the one I went to – wasn’t told when they were going to city hall, and didn’t make the trip to China). 

    You could send them a card and small gift now, but buy their gift and just save it, then give it to them before you all leave for the ‘wedding.’  It would drive her bonkers wondering who bought it if it came from a registry.  🙂
