ZChick17:  I’d probably suck it up. It sucks to “be the better person” or “take the high road”, but … well … sometimes ya gotta. Maybe nothing too pricey though.

Suck it up and get her a nice gift. Even if you’re more distant after the wedding, at least you’ll know that on your end, you left things on good terms.

A wedding gift is supposed to be based on the closeness of the relationship as well as your budget.  Based on what you say, this wedding has already cost you plenty and you are questioning the relationship going forward. I wouldn’t stiff her, but I’d likely  give a gift that is somewhat less generous than my usual.

I probably wouldn’t get her a gift… she can’t even spell your name. Get her a card.

Meh. I’d do the same as she did for you. I don’t think it will matter either way, do you?

ZChick17:  I’m sorry, you lost me at she MISPELLED your name?! I would say get her what you feel comfortable doing within your budget. If she can’t take the time to spell your name right then I wouldn’t put in too much effort picking her gift.

ItWasntMe:  My thoughts as well.  I would definitely at least get her a card and write something nice in it, though.

However, OP, it sounds like you do want to be a nicer person than I’d be and get her a small gift, so you should.  Do it for you and not for her, though.  (if you get my drift)

See…I don’t think you can win in this situation if she’s been as awful as you’ve described. Your gift probably won’t be appreciated  as in ‘not enough’, so nothing you do will potentially make her happy.

I’d cut my losses, so to speak, and move on after the wedding.

ZChick17:  Eh, I’m all for being the better person but I wouldn’t give a gift in this scenario. But if you think she’s going to b*tch at you after the wedding for not getting her a gift, then I’d probably just give something to avoid the drama.
