TGold:  If you’re going, I’d give them a nice card and maybe a small sentimental gift, like a $20-30 picture frame or something. If you’re not going and didn’t give a gift when they got married, I’d give a gift now, whatever you would usually give a close friend for their wedding.

I would not bring a physical gift it would be very annoying for them to bring all these Gifts back. Give a card with some cash or jst a card.

Etiquette would say that the two expenses are not related. Wedding gifts are based on your budget and the closeness of the relationship. You are not in any way obligated to attend a destination wedding reception, where costs and logistics can be prohibitive. And wedding gifts are supposedly from the heart.  Gifts are most properly sent ahead of time, in any case.
