    How does she know that far out? 

    Lbut if she is not in the wedding is she still a bridesmaid or a very awesome and supportive friend? Up to you but any gift would be a smaller gift

    will she still be involved in your wedding activities and helping out your other bridesmaids? will she be involved in the bachelorette party, bridal shower? if so it would be nice to get her a thank you gift but if she’s not going to be involved in anything than i would say no.

    pvgymnast01:  How is she still a bridesmaid? If she isnt around to help with activities or the wedding or even be in the wedding, she isn’t a bridesmaid.

    pvgymnast01:  You do not need to get her a gift. You asked her to be a bridesmaid but she can’t be one. Similarly, if you are doing favors you’re not going to send them to people who don’t come to the wedding.

    pvgymnast01:  I accidently voted yes but I meant to press no. She’s no longer a bridesmaid or going to have any bridesmaid duties or even attend your wedding you definitely do not get her a gift.

    pvgymnast01:  Do what you feel is right. If you want to give her a gift you should. Personally, if I had to decline a Bridesmaid or Best Man invitation, and then recieved a gift from the bride, I would be a bit confused as to why…

    pvgymnast01:  To me it seems like she is politely declining at being a bridesmaid. Your friend is a new friend and may feel like it is too much responsiblity and this is her way of gracefully bowing out. Take a quick peek at how to bow out of being in a bridal party, most of the advice is to plead work, money or gently let people down.

    I don’t know your exact situation (and didn’t mean to sound as harsh as I did!), but another explanation if she isn’t helping with planning or anything else bridesmaid related, she may be trying to say “no” gracefully.

    If she can’t go due to circumstance of a job and she has been helpful anyway, get her a gift. However, if she is bowing out gracefully, it may be akward to get her something and you definately don’t owe her anything if she is bowing out.
